Cookies-one of the best things God gave us
Funny, possibly not true fact: I heard on the radio that chocolate chip cookies were an accident! In the original recipe, the chocolate chips were supposed to be melted and then added to the batter. Someone forgot to melt them, and instead of just melting them anyway, she just added the chips to the cookies. Whether this is true or not, I have no clue. But I think that, if it’s true, it’s funny that it was a sort-of-accident.
