Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies

There are endless chocolate chip cookie recipes and I believe most people have their favorite, this is mine.  Ingrained in my brain and my daughter Lindsay’s, we can throw these babies together at a moment’s notice.  I made them today to do a pantry clean-out.  I have talked about my shopping problem, walking down the grocery store isle and seeing an item and being sure we need some at home.  Then, come home to find out I already have two or three on the shelf.  Well, looking through my freezer today, I found four half used bags of coconut.  Looking in my pantry baking basket, found partial bags of chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, a Skor bar, and Hershey’s bar.  So these are the things I added to my batch of cookies today.
