Chocolate Chip Cookies! Baking Up Some Goodness II

cookiesAt the Carriage House Inn, we feature comfortable rooms that make you feel at home, and a bountiful breakfast of savory and sweet meals that will please your palate and tickle your tummy.  After a relaxing stay, however, what some guests remember the most are those wonderful chocolate chip cookies that Claudine makes several times a week.

Featured in our dining room on the buffet, those cookies are available 24/7, and a plateful may not last the night.  Kids (young and old!)  enjoy this sweet snack that are “just like Mom used to make”.  Recently the world champion crew of the 8 metre racing yacht “Gefion” claimed that the Carriage House Inn cookies powered their sailboat to victory in the North American championship regatta held recently in Sodus Point!  We don’t quite believe that’s true, but the crew did put a hurting on the inventory that week!

So simple, yet so good, here’s the recipe:

Here’s a picture of Claudine making another wonderful batch!  If you think the recipe is suspiciously like the Nestle’s Toll House Cookie recipe, you are absolutely right.  We have adjusted  the chocolate chips and added some motherly love…..just like Mom used to do.

Think I’ll have one now!!
