The Totally Basic One

I don’t have much to say, but I couldn’t look at the picture of my witch claw at the top of my blog anymore. So… a recipe. It is the good old fall-back. You might recall that in “Little Women,” which is one of my favorite books, they all made fun of Beth because she didn’t have anything more interesting to post in their paper than a recipe. So mock if you will, but I have a cookie jar full of these, and you don’t. There are a few recipes that I have made so often that I don’t ever have to pull out a book, a recipe card, or consult my computer. This is one. I can throw it together so fast that I can pull a batch out of the oven before you can find your car keys and drive to the store and back with your sub-standard store-bought cookies. It is the good old Nestle Tollhouse recipe. I have tried a lot of others, but sometimes basic is the best. Click on the photo to enlarge… and then lean in… closer… now SMELL!

Yes, these are much prettier than your hand. Because when I saw that earlier today it made me get a pang in the pit of my stomach and shiver. That is a nasty burn, dear!
