Congrats! Chocolate chip cookies are like cheeseburgers and beer. If you ask someone what their favorite food is, they'll never say cheeseburgers. If you ask someone what their favorite drink is, they'll never say beer. And if you ask someone what their favorite dessert is, they'll never say chocolate chip cookies. We all try to be impressive and fancy and say baked brie, pinot noir, and lemon chiffon ... but nothing is more satisfying than a chili cheeseburger at Hard Times with an Old Dominion and some fresh-baked cookies when you get hom!
