Although this chip cookie recipe is not the most basic, I have tried an awful lot before I settled on this one as my favorite. Try it I know youíll agree. Drop me a line if you want to let me know how you found it. Iím always ready to consider improvements! You will note that I have used dark chips because I really have a preference for dark chocolate. My kids prefer a sweeter version but I reserve the above recipe as a secret adult one! Once I even made my own dark by using the very best ingredients I could find. I took a special making class where I learned the basics. (Yes Iím a real freak!), and then concocted the most exquisite imaginable then promptly ate most of them just keeping a few pieces which I used in the cookie mix above. It really complemented the cranberries. I have left out the making part as I think you will find equally good chips in the right stores.

Good luck and I hope you will join the ever increasing crowds of fans of this soon to be famous recipe.
