My time with my mom growing up was and still is fairly limited. I have always enjoyed the memories shared while mixing up a batch of Nestle Toll House cookie batter in her Kitchenaid stand mixer. This wasn’t something that we would plan, but an all-of-the-sudden, “hey, lets get a bag of chocolate chips!” At the grocery store. We would talk about life while waiting to hear the timer on the oven beep signaling that it was time to put the cookies on the cooling rack, however we were impatient so we would eat a piping hot cookie and burn our mouths yet still enjoy how amazing the melted chocolate tasted. We would laugh and continue eating the cookies together even if it did slowly destroy our taste buds. In those moments we were just Mother and Son, no problems. Hopefully you can make memories with a batch of these famous cookies too:)
