When Michal posts a recipe, I try it. Like all members of the Miner family, I know she doesn't make or serve anything that isn't delicious AND beautiful. So, when she talked about these cookies on her blog, I knew I had to try them. I've made them three or four times in as many weeks. I love them. The dough is delicious, the cookies are delicious, and they look great. Like Michal says, you have to use the good stuff with this recipe - real butter, vanilla extract and real milk chocolate (Guittard or Ghiradelli) chips. To quote her, "If you're going to substitute margerine or imitation vanilla or Nestle chocolate chips, then don't bother --just use the Toll House recipe."
Get the recipe here. Seriously. It's worth the time to click over and see it.
