Chocolate chip cookies might be the universal flavor (alt: taste) of love. I think nearly everyone has fond memories of enjoying fresh baked treats, staring at the plate of cooling cookies, waiting for permission from the baker that they're cool enough to avoid burning our tongues. Plenty of taste buds were sacrificed for the sake of gobbling up too hot cookies, and I stand by those decisions.
The smell of these cookies baking in the oven feels like walking back into my mom's home, and brings me back to some of my favorite memories. After losing my mom, baking cookies using her recipe was another way I could reconnect with her and create new memories with my own family.
