Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
In junior high school, my girlfriend Carolyn would trade me something from my bag lunch for one of these cookies her mom baked. They were the first chocolate chip cookies I ever ate. Many years later, after I was married and on one of our trips to Minnesota, I stopped in to see her mom. Carolyn had died at an early age. We talked about the cookie exchange Carolyn and I had. She gave me the recipe. Every time I eat one of these, I think of Carolyn. She was my best friend.
