Can any superhuman resist eating homemade chocolate chip cookies straight from the cooling rack?
While my cookies pale in comparison to the Italian pastries from Carlino’s, I made them with love, in an effort to bring a slight bit of comfort to another’s personal tragedy. When I heard her news this morning, I knew I had to cook *something*, but left without durum flour, my pappardelle standby was out. Choosing these chocolate chip cookies was driven by the ingredients in my cupboard. Recipe’s straight from the Joy of Cooking.
Italians don’t claim chocolate chip cookies as their comfort food, but I’ve never met one who didn’t like eating them.
