    Any chance you could print Kathy’s entire chocolate chip cookie recipe? I’ve heard about these cookies for 16 years!

      Hey Donna – We’ll ask Kathy about the recipe on Monday and post it.

      Actually, the recipe is the same one from the back of the Nestle Tollhouse Chocolate Chip bag! Here is a link: She does change the temperature that she bakes them – 300 degrees instead of the 350 listed on the recipe.

      One of my favorite quotes from the video is “It’s not a unique recipe – they’re just made in a unique way.” (Or something like that…) I was surprised that she mixes everything by hand and wonder if that makes a difference in how they turn out. I also wonder if baking them at a lower temperature (300 degrees) makes them taste different.

      Kathy would also say that you also MUST use Pillsbury flour, real butter, and real vanilla in order for them to turn out like hers. :)

    I’ve been making chocolate chip cookies (came from an all-girl family and that was our favorite Friday night activity;) for many many years. But I picked up a couple of tips from watching this video. Thanks Kathy…and also, Holly! Remember, without the Holly’s of the world, laughing kindly and good-naturedly, the Kathy’s of the world couldn’t shine!!;)

    Many who have graced the halls of Boundless Flight, Inc. have enjoyed Kathy’s cookies. They are indeed the best! Holly and Kathy made an interesting pair – these two should be syndicated. LOL

  7. I cannot begin to say all the emotions that I experienced watching this video today. Thank you, Bethel, for this gift! (And, Kathy, thank you for all the cookies over the years that have even been passed on to our four children). I love you!
