It was a farewell day for my intern, Katherine, and she has been such a sweet lady, made me want to make these cookies as her farewell gift, not forgetting a pair of handmade earrings I made for her too. I promised her these cookies last month and as last Friday 06.05.11 was her last day, I decided to make them on Thursday night, by hook or by crook, though I was rather tired after a full day work.
But seeing the "kids" enjoying these cookies made my day too. "kids" also applies to the other 2 CS I have with me at my work place. Hahaha.. not so kid after all... Anyway, the cleaning aunty loves them too that she requested I make these again on Thursday preferably so that when I give them to her on Friday, she can keep some for her son who will book out from the army on Friday night. WOW!!!... Demanding aunty lei... Don't play play okie...
Anyway, I am more than happy to share this recipes for all those who loves not just cookies, but Chewy Chocolate Chunky Cookies!
