Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

I am amazed with kids learning to cook at an early age. I also have my siblings who are already exposed in the kitchen since my Mom passed away. My youngest sister is in fact, a member of a school organization which has something to do with cooking and baking. I call her My Little Chef. I asked myself, how do kids know that they like cooking or baking? I even want to answer that myself, recalling the times when I was in the kitchen with my Mom, but I did not get any answer. Maybe at that time, you just feel like doing what you like – whatever interests you.


Checking WordPress Reader has been part of my day since I joined this wonderful community. While I was on the Reader, I noticed the recipe of Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies on Emu’s Eats and clicked it. I was surprised when I found out that it was her sister writing the post… and baking cookies. I immediately clicked the bookmark button. After a few weeks, I finally baked those cookies.

The cookies were soft, chewy and DELICIOUS!! After eating many cookies, I found it sweeter. I think I would lessen the sugar the next time I make them. Yes! I will definitely make them again.

  1. – Started at age 3 (long time ago), my son would bring a stool to stand on to watch (and if he can help) me cooking. It started with breaking the eggs.
    – I was not much of a cookie eater (because of calories) but now you cannot stop me.
    These cookies look yummy and I like how you have stacked them in a large cup. 😀

    1. I think we all started with eggs, hahaha! Maybe that’s why I love egg so much. I loved the store-bought cookies but when I started baking, I stopped buying and made my own. 😉 And yes, these cookies were yummy. Thanks for noticing how I stacked them. 🙂
