Grandma Brown’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

Grandma Brown’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

When I was growing up my grandma used to cook and bake all of the time.  I was the baker in the family along with Grandma.  Before she passed away, she hand wrote her recipes for me and I am going to share them with you.  Some of them are left up for interpretation so I will do my best.

Grandma's cookies always came out perfect...every time we went to visit she always had them ready! She browned them a bit more than most cook there's so they were crunchy. I love them!!
