Nothin' says lovin' like somethin' in the oven

So recently I ran across a new recipe for chocolate chip cookies to try.  I estimate that I've made about four hundred batches of Tollhouse Cookies over the years, and Tollhouse Cookies are pretty darn wonderful.   It was the first recipe I ever memorized (other than, say, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.)

But this one got rave reviews.  I was too lazy to copy-and-paste and I was also out of printer ink,  so I found a sheet of notebook paper and wrote it down.  I baked up a batch and they were, indeed, superb.  A few days ago I pulled out the as-yet-unmemorized recipe to whip up another batch and noticed this:

Noticed what?


No, I have no idea.

Unless the cat is gaslighting me.

He does look kind of sneaky back there.


  1. And not one ounce of sherry in the entire recipe! I'll probably wake up tomorrow chuckling over this one...

  2. We are all students of the chocolate chip.
