As I reached for my own go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe, click here, recently, I remembered my sister, Beth, mentioning that she had thrown away all recipes and had just one family favorite chocolate chip recipe now. The simple 2-in-1 recipe I shared, last week, makes a chewy or a shortbread cookie and I know that Beth’s are another yummy variation. This gave me an idea. While we’re here visiting, I’ve asked several family members to bake their favorites for us and, with this research, they’ve given me permission to assemble our tried and true, family favorites to share with you at willowday.
