Mixing chips helps make the cookies


Our grandsons love to get in the kitchen, put on their aprons and help prepare homemade treats. One day, Jackson was so excited to make chocolate chip cookies so we used my all-time favorite recipe from my cookbook for Judy’s Chocolate Chip Cookies. But Jackson made it his version by suggesting we add half chocolate chips and half white chocolate chips, so we did. They were some of the best chocolate chip cookies ever. Lucas, our 3-year-old grandson, helped grandpa make a sherbert treat.
