Featured Recipe: Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies
About 15 years ago this was my go-to Christmas Cookie and I would bake batch after batch to give away and take to holiday parties and cookie exchanges. Then one year I gave a batch to my friend Neil Gustafson. Neil immediately asked for the recipe and before I knew it, he was hard at work baking batch after batch in his own kitchen. As the years passed I moved onto other Christmas treats, but Neil kept baking that tried and true chocolate chip cookie. He baked so many batches they became known around the neighborhood as Mr. Neil’s Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies.
This is a crispy oat and chocolate chip cookie, not your traditional Toll House cookie. It spreads as it bakes and hot out of the oven they are moist and gooey-good. After cooling on the wire rack, they crisp up and are perfect with a hot beverage or cold glass of milk.
But the best part if they are perfect to give away. Best stored in a tin or on a platter wrapped in foil, be sure to include a copy of the recipe. But watch out, they will soon became someone else’s’ Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies.

What you're saying..
My husband grew up in Michigan and his mother was originally from the hills of Kentucky. I first had Chocolate Gravy one winter when she was visiting. Growing up in the South, too, I was surprised that I had never had it nor even heard about it. Anyway it was rich and delicious and she served it over hot, flaky biscuits.
My husband told me that when he and his cousin were running cross country in high school, before each Saturday race, his mother would make them biscuits and chocolate gravy. Now thanks to Cheap. Fast. Good! I am preparing your version of biscuits and chocolate gravy. Except now instead of heading to a cross country race we will be headed to our son's swim meet. Thanks for helping me carry on a family tradition.
