Everyone loves a classic chocolate chip cookie with a tall glass of cold milk. Especially this girl and especially Santa this time of year. This is a family recipe that I share with you today.
If you are looking for that chocolate chip cookie that is crisp yet chewy at the same time then look no further. This is your cookie recipe!
This recipe comes from my wonderful Mother in Law and the recipe has been in her family for years and years. She is the same lady that brought you Crispy Balls and Birds Nest Treats. See what I mean, bless her!

For High Altitude (many of our family lives in Colorado),..try this variation: Increase flour to 2½ cups. Add 2 teaspoons water with flour and reduce both granulated sugar and brown sugar to ⅔ cup each. Bake drop cookies for 8 to 10 minutes and pan cookie for 17 to 19 minutes.
