Lawyers, they say, are known for their attention to details. And for the many great legal minds, they have brought this attribute into the kitchen as well. I am falling short in that respect yet (and also in height! haha) as I have stayed away from the kitchen most of my life. Lately though, I am becoming such a baker! Maybe in a week, there are two days I would just stay home and bake cookies for my nieces and nephews and for friends who allow themselves to be the guinea pigs!
So with the cookies, I started small...
then made them a little bigger...
then comes the monster cookies...I call them legally grand cookies!!!
Because I always lose the faxed recipe, I am putting it here (for my own consumption haha).
