How-To Tuesday: Dad's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Good morning one and all!

I was having one of those days the other day where I missed my Dad. Usually when that happens, I reach for the nearest can of Coca-Cola (his favourite) or have a sudden urge to bake chocolate chip cookies.

Not just any chocolate chip cookies, but his chocolate chip cookies. He always used the same recipe from the Purity Cookbook, and it's the recipe that I used for our wedding favours, when I'm feeling like I need a warm hug from my Dad, and the one that I will use to bake cookies on rainy days with my kiddo.
