Chocolate Chip Cookies

Even though the average German eats over 18 pounds of chocolate per year (American's consume only 11 and a half pounds per year) I haven't been able to find a chocolate chips here. That's why when Kevin's parents came to visit last month I asked them to bring some chocolate chips. I am now in possession of the world's largest bag of Nestle Toll House Morsels.
Not that I'm complaining. I love to make chocolate chip cookies to share with European friends. They are 100 percent American.
This weekend, however, a real apron caper occurred in my kitchen. Kevin donned an apron and decided to make a batch of cookies himself. (His first ever!) I watched the entire process, but didn't help a bit.

I'm please to report that Kevin's first foray into the world of backing was extremely successful. Following NestlĂ©’s recipe to a t, the cookies were perfect!

He looks scared :) You are lucky, I married a stress baker. Whenever he is stressed or angry I come home to cookies or brownies. It sounds like it would be nice but it can be tough watching my weight during his finals.

I love your blog Erin. You have so many recipes I can't wait to try. Thanks!
