Chocolate Chip Cookies

My son was begging me to help him make cookies. I finally gave in. He wanted Cherry Walnut Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies. I told him we were out of dried cherries and oatmeal. So we made Chocolate Chip Cookies with walnuts. Later I found the cherries and oatmeal (can we say disorganized?). I guess I didn't look too hard for them because I didn't really want them in there. I like my cookies simple!

This particular recipe came from a cookbook called Lee Bailey's Country Desserts. He called for chocolate chunks; I just used chocolate chips.

I'm not giving the recipe since its pretty much like any other chocolate chip cookie, which is to say that it tastes great!

This is Dylan, helping. He loves doing this sort of thing.

Chocolate Chip Cookie recipes are secrets anyways, never to be given out to anyone *chomps on the cyanide pill under interrogation*.

Alex sounds a lot like Dylan. Always wanting to make things more complicated. Sometimes I go with his suggestions just so he can see what they taste like, and as I do that he is getting better and better about what goes together. Now some of his suggestions really bring something to the recipe.

That picture of Dylan is really priceless! I love cooking kids pictures!
