ultimate cookies

on the heels of the great gingerbread triumph, i have been trying to duplicate a colleague's toll house cookie recipe. it's on the bag of chocolate chips, she tells me, the generic kind not the nestlé ones. the recipes are practically identical; i tried them once over the holidays. but tonight i adjust the ratio of white sugar to brown, i plop down bigger scoops than i normally do, and i use parchment paper on the cookie sheet, something the girl has taught me to do. and i think it worked! now, what to do with all these perfect cookies...

I always use the original recipe on the back of the Nestlé chips; it comes out beautifully though I now have to substitute the chips...not available in Milan...with M&Ms, and am running out of American brown sugar brought over the last time I visited. Just found where I can get something that looks similar, though dark. Will have to try it. In the meantime, tomorrow morning I'm going to a friend's house to make these cookies with her and her young sun. Fun! Enjoyed your post, as always, thanks.
