Chocolate Chip Cookies

Times three.
Batch 1:
I used the recipe on the back of the bag. They sucked. I threw them all away. 'Nuf said. (My mom experiences a modicum of satisfaction when I have "flops." It keeps her from thinking I have superhuman baking skillz.)
Batch 2:
I used the recipe that Bob posted a couple of days ago. (I had to adjust it a little bit because I live at a high altitude.) I ran out of all-purpose flour (I know, I call myself a cook...) and had to throw in some wheat flour. They turned out pretty well and they all got eaten at the Young Womens activity.
Don't they look good?Want a closer look?How about even closer? Just look at that craggy goodness. Good enough to eat, don't you think?
Batch 3:
I was pretty sick of making stinkin' cookies by this time. I signed up to make some for a church meeting at the old folks home. I was told that the ladies loved chocolate but I was not to add nuts. ('m guessing allergies.) So I decided to add broken pretzel bits instead. They turned out great. I think I will do this every time I make chocolate chip cookies - if I ever make them again.

i have a choc chip recipie that calls for part flour and part blended oatmeal, for the flour base. I LOVE the texture it gives to the cookie. (just incase you run out of flour again. That is.)

These cookies have sensuous look to them. A look that would leave me hiding in my closet so i could enjoy this guilty pleasure. Alone!
