The $10,000 Chocolate Chip Cookies

These sweet little treats are famous! Yep, they’re the chocolate chip cookies I made on NBC, Food Fighters tv show. I’ve been making them for the past 23 years. They’re buttery, rich, decadent, chocolatey, soft and chewy. I’m still in shock that I won $10,000 for baking them.  I guess it’s true what they say……persistence pays off – literally! Here’s the recipe below. #getinthekitchen
