Makin’ Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Liam made his first batch of chocolate chip cookies tonight! I remember making these growing up and, in my opinion, they are the world best chocolate chip cookies. I know. I know. Everyone thinks their chocolate chip recipe is the best, but you have to at least give these a try. They almost have a salty taste. Not a gross, nasty salty taste, but a nice taste to balance out the sweet. Like popcorn and milk duds! Recipe is at the bottom of the post.

Honestly I was a little surprised, but Liam loved making the cookies! I loved making cookies with my family growing up and I glad that I’ve started this tradition with Liam early.

He wasn’t sure what to think of the sugar when he got it on his hand. He held out his hand and wouldn’t touch anything until I wiped off the sugar.

Liam thought it was a good idea to filp the Kitchen Aid switch on when we were adding chocolate chips. Dough went EVERYWHERE! I am sure I will be cleaning it up for days.

When the bag of chocolate chips spill and you think you’ve won the chocolate chip jackpot. This is Liam trying to shove as many chocolate chips in his mouth before I cleaned them up.

We were cleaning up our mess when the timer went off  on my phone. He thought it was cool.
