This morning,

before work, I decided to make a batch of chocolate chip cookies from the book, The Magnolia Bakery Cookbook - Old-Fashioned Recipes from New York's Sweetest Bakery by Jennier Appel and Allysa Torey.

My days need a positive start and between doing laundry, feeding the dogs and cats and fixing a breakfast for husband and I (ok bagels and coffee) I found that I had more than enough time in my two hours before work to make a batch of their Chocolate Chip Cookies. Not a lot of sugar in the recipe which I enjoy - but great taste and texture. Even without putting vanilla in (as my pantry was out)! Also, I love mini chips in cookies. I find that for some reason the cookies seem to bake better with them.
Next time I will try adding walnuts.

you sold me. I'm buying the ocookbook this weekend. Sometimes people up here over do it with their praise of the Magnolia Bakery -- but I have to remember that it is well earned.
