My Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie

Friday night I decided to take an impromptu trip to visit my mom for the night. My mom knows all the good thrift shops in the area and I still need quite a few things for our knew house so we decided an early morning shopping and yard sale trip was a must! I came home with quite a few good finds, but my favorite by far is this set of vintage Pyrex nesting bowls!

The woman I bought them from told me she remembered quite a few batches of sugar cookies being made in the yellow one when she was younger, so after washing them up at home I decided cookies were in order! (plus I can never go home without my mom requesting a batch of chocolate chip cookies)

I’ve tried many great cookie recipes, but when I’m at home I just HAVE to use the Toll House recipe. It’s what my mom always made and to this day it’s still my favorite chocolate chip cookie!

I did decide to mix it up just a little bit and used half whole wheat flour and browned butter and I love the way they turned out. I like to bake these on brown paper because that’s how my mom has always done it….and I think it really keeps them from spreading too much, but mostly because it’s mom’s way.
