My grandmother had a wooden cookie jar that lived on the back of her kitchen counter the majority of my life. Her grandchildren have always been able to count on that cookie jar to be full of something delicious. Although there have been times that we’ve found Little Debbie treats, it’s always been much more common for us to find homemade cookies that our grandmother baked for us in anticipation of a visit.
There are so many forms of love and I believe baking is one of them. In our offices we find happiness in preparing freshly baked cookies that we can offer during our client meetings and hope that our token translates as an expression of sincere welcoming.
My grandmother has always sworn by the NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Original Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe and our family has continued that in each generation. Enjoy!
