The Ol' List

Remember my list? The "30 Before 30" one? It's time to knock a few more off.

This one should be fun. #15 -- Perfect a Cookie Recipe.

Here's the problem. I'm overwhelmed.

Overwhelmed by cookies? Yes, overwhelmed.

What kind should I start with?

Should I keep it simple?

Chocolate chip?

Sugar Cookies, gingersnaps, snickerdoodle?

Or make something fancy like macaroons?

Help me decide. Please.

I say stay with the chocolate chip or sugar cookie. Those are the kinds I always want to eat. I kind of feel like making some right now:)

all i can offer is this piece...there is nothing like a fantastic chocolate chip cookie. Don't get me wrong, I love snickerdoodles but not everyone does.

I get a lot of nice comments from this recipe. They stay nice and moist because of the instant pudding :) And there's nothing better than a chocolate chocolate chip cookie!!
