My mom used to have a go-to cookie recipe when we were little. I remember she added wheat germ to it. But then she found the motherload recipe - Mrs. Field's Chocolate Chip Cookies. We were smitten with them and never made another kind. She even upgraded her Kitchen Aid mixer in order to better handle the massive amount of cookie dough this recipe makes. Thankfully she gave me my very own Kitchen Aid mixer for a wedding gift and I can carry on her tradition of delicious cookies.
I'll even go so far as to share the recipe if you want. Just facebook me :D
