The chocolate chip cookie. The cookie that makes everything better. Well it is supposed to anyway. At least in this house. How can you ruin them you may ask. Not so hard it seems. I tried to make them a bit "healthier" today when I made them. I added half wheat flour and half white flour. Not so good... It took the wonderful, soothing taste away. And you are left with a not quite as good chocolate chip cookie. Thankfully the chocolate still tastes good in them. It also does nothing for them if you over bake them. Or worse yet, if you burn them. I did both today. I was not on a roll by any means. I was making them for a family picnic tomorrow. They aren't a total loss but not nearly as good as they are meant to be. Good thing there will be brownies there as well. They might make the rainy day bearable. We shall see.
