When I was younger and my grandmother was still alive, she would make the most amazing food. Her chicken stew was to die for. Turkey dinners and mashed potatoes were delicious. My favorite, always, was the desserts. There would be pies and cakes, and brownies, and cookies. My absolute favorite was Raisin filled cookies. I have sworn that I will never taste another Raisin filled cookie, ever again. And so far I haven’t. I don’t think that any one could compare to Grammy Jo’s rasien filled cookies. As I told you earlier, I am making a delicious dinner tonight. I am also making my dad’s chocolate chip cookies.
My dad is an amazing man. He grew up by the river as the oldest of nine children. He, in my opinion, is my hero. He always took care of everyone. When we were young, he would make sure that we would visit my grandparents often and have fun doing it. He is a retired Air Force Sargent. He is now one of the most amazing custodian/bus drivers that our town has ever had. My dad takes time for everyone, even though some times people don’t realize it. He makes the most amazing molasses cookies. Now… I don’t have the recipe for these. Nor do I want them. He is the only person that makes the most absolute perfect molasses cookies I have ever tested. Nobody else has compared, except my grandmother. I’m pretty positive that my dad gets his cooking skills from his mom. I really wouldn’t doubt it. I do however, have his chocolate chip cookie recipe. I have never tasted a chocolate chip cookie recipe quite like his either. They aren’t caky and they really just taste divine. I can’t really explain it. It is a simple recipe too. You just mix all the ingredients and cook it for 8-10 minutes or until the edges are brown and the middle looks cooked. It’s the most simple chocolate chip cookie ever...
If you find that you want to try these cookies and you like them too, leave me a comment.
Have a fabulous day!
