when I was 10 years old I remember my Mother was making toll house cookies. She alwas made each cookie the same size. There were 6 other siblings so every cookie had to be the smae size. Then one time my younger brother Bobby cried Cheechee has more chocolate chips in her cookie than mine! So from that day on My Mother would make the cookie dough without the chips. She would count out 5 chocolate chips on each cookie so no one would get more then the other. MY Mother alwas knew how to make all of happy'

What a great idea. I love your story too. When we were kids and had to share a candy or cookie or whatever snack it might be mom would pair us off with a snack and one of us would split the snack and the other kid would get to pick first. We were oh so careful to get it to the exact equal split because we knew the kid picking would pick the biggest piece. The older I got the smarter my mom got. Or maybe I just realized it more as I grew older...momma's always know what to do, don't they. Treasure your loved ones each day and all the wonderful baking memories you have with them, Have a nlessed day and keep on baking, Donna G.

Your Mother is a saint! I cannot imagine how much extra time it must have taken her to make cookies if she had to count out the chocolate chips like that. My Mom always made homemade cookies, we never hade store bought when I was growing up. With 12 siblings, she made dozens and dozens at a time, tollhouse being our favorite. If we had complained about the number of chips and expected her to count out the chips? She most likely would have told us to eat them as is or not eat them at all because she didn't have time to count out chips for 6 dozen cookies (or however many she made that day). We just appreciated that she made at all I guess lol

That would sure be the long way about making cookies but then the important thing was to make every one happy. Another showing of TLC

I know how your mother felt!! I need to do things like this for my own kids - only 2 boys, but they insist on fairness in all things - your mom LOVED you all a lot to do this (just as I love my kids, too!) Good story!

How many times do we get to the end of the recipe only to have to open a new bag of chips because the kids keep walking by and eeating them!!! Good times.

Mothers do all that they have to in order to keep the peace in the household! And they say being a stay-at-home mom is not a real job. "They" obviously don't know what moms go through on a daily basis

As a mother of 4 children (ages 13, 10, 8 & 7), I can relate to your story. I LOVE your mother's solution.

I'll bet everyone thinks you buy the cookies with the same amount of chips on top of every one. Make sure you set them straight!
