Guess where these little buggers are going...

Homemade chocolate chip cookies are a favorite around here.
One day last week Ben and I made a batch of cookie dough, but I didn't want to sit around all day baking cookies so I just poured all the batter into a bar pan and baked it all at once. The results were these fabulously yummy and ultra gooey chocolate chip brownie like cookie thingys. They were perfect. Crispy on the outside but very gooey in the middle. On our way out the door to the park that afternoon we delivered a plate full to our neighbors Ron, Sue and Christopher (who had just come home from completing his freshmen year of college).

The next day I missed a phone call from Sue.
She left me a message saying "Trish, call me right away I need to ask you something really important."

I called her back and this is what she said "Those were the best cookies ever. Would you mind making another batch for us to take when we leave next Monday to go see Chad? He would love to have a homemade treat like that." And, since Sue and Ron are truly the best neighbors that we could ever have wished for, I agreed to make another batch!

So tomorrow these dangerously delicious chocolate chip cookie bar thingys will be traveling 4747 miles (or 7640 km) to:

York, England
(my cookies have been to europe but I never have!)

to be enjoyed by Chad, their other son, who is studying there as an English Literature major.
So Chad, I hope these cookies are not confiscated by greedy, hungry TSA employees or stolen by ravenous, kleptomaniac baggage handlers or consumed by your dad and Chris on the flight over. We miss you and pray that you are having a great time. My boys are very excited that you are coming home soon! Have a great time visiting and traveling with your family and enjoy the cookies.
