Double Chocolate Chippers

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas. I am so excited to have my daughter Lucy home and to have her share in the joy of participating in 12 days of Christmas Cookies with Rustic Joyful Food, with my pal Danielle and a whole bunch of wonderful foodies. I love making these cookies. Here’s a recipe that evokes wonderful family memories. I have so much love in my heart for the wonderful women I came from, many gone and the others in my life, like my sister Patty Sue who is the best cook ever, my sister Paula who has a talent finding the best bakery, and my niece Alex who is also holding her own in the cooking department. Making these cookies reminds me of my amazing mother gone 16 years, but never forgotten. This much loved family recipe originates from Paula Sondag and although she’s been gone over a decade, she’s with me everyday. She was a second mother to me and one of the best bakers that I’ve ever met. Get in the kitchen this week and create some family memories of your own.

For me, the trick with cookies is to take them out of the oven just before they’re done, as they continue to cook a bit. Although it’s not necessary, I like to weigh them out so that they’re all the same and cook the same. This may be more detail than you need, but I like mine 1.2 oz and baked for 9 minutes.

Let me know what you think! Enjoy!
