Thanks to our local Asian grocery, S. and I were recently equipped with a bag of (expensive) organic light brown sugar. It was nestled in between blocks of palm sugar and other curious exotic sweeteners. We decided to stick with what we knew, because...
...we were making my mom's chocolate chip cookies.
Pretty much all readers of this blog (my family) know and love these, so there's not much to say. You all understand just how good they are. I'll leave you with some pictures of the rainy-day baking progress.
Ours, sadly, turned out nothing like the fat little pillows I grew up loving. They were rather flat and crisp. Oh well, still sugary, chocolatey, and delicious.
