This time of year is my favorite. Early October is that magical time of year when the beanies come out, Halloween plans are made and you can bake every day without rhyme or reason. It also reminds me of being a kid, when October marked the countdown to quite a few of my favorite things. One of those things was my mom’s infamous Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip and Walnut cookies. My mom usually got into baking mode every year around October 1st. These cookies were her favorite to make and my favorite to eat.
This week we are visiting my brother and his kids in the awesome town of Crested Butte Colorado. This is the perfect place to get into the groove of Fall. The air is the right degree of chilly, the Aspen trees are the right color of yellow and my mom is here with a bag of chocolate chips. It’s Toll House cookie time and I couldn’t be more excited to share these pictures with you.
I can’t share her secret but I can tell you that sometimes you have to tweak things here or there to find out if you can make a good cookie a GREAT one. Also Toll House Semi Sweet chips are the best to use!
