I love to make chocolate chip cookies. And I make them often enough, and have been making them for so long, that I have the recipe for the Nestle Tollhouse chocolate chip cookies memorized.
A couple of weeks ago, I started thinking about how the recipe calls for 3/4 cup white sugar and 3/4 cup brown sugar and 2 1/4 cup flour. I always used my 3/4 cup measure for the sugars and then dug out a 1 cup and 1/4 cup measures for the flour.
Until I realized the 3 x 3/4 is 2 1/4.
So, instead of dirtying the 3/4 cup, 1 cup and 1/4 cup measures, now I only use the 3/4 cup for all three.
That's my Thanksgiving gift to you - a way to make chocolate chip cookies with fewer dishes than before.
