Personal Notes:
Mom attended a convention in Orlando, Florida many years ago. Magic Johnson was one of the hosts and boasted that the pastry chef made the best chocolate chip cookies in the world. He got the recipe and shared it with all the attendees. They really are some of the best chocolate chip cookies we have ever tasted!
