Maddie is my middle granddaughter. She is 11 years old and in 6th grade. She often bakes with her mother, but mom has gone back to work since she is the youngest in her family and is now in Middle School.

From time to time now she comes over to visit and when she seems bored, I'll say let's make cookies!!!

The last time she decided to make chocolate chip cookies, so I proceeded to get out what we would need. As each ingredient came out, I would tell her how much to measure out for the dough. Finally, she looked at me and said, "Grammie, how do you know how much to use? We always look on the back of the Chocolate Chip package." I replied that I had done it so many times, that I have the recipe in my head. As we were about to finish the cookies, I opened the pantry and brought out a bag of Nestle chocolate chips. It wasn't the usual 12 oz. bag, it was the super size that I buy at Costco. I thought that Maddie was going to fall over as she had never seen a bag that big!!! She remarked, " Now I know why you know the recipe so well, You have to make a lot of cookies with a bag so big!!" She made sure that she went with her mom the next trip to Costco, as she wanted a big bag of Chocolate chips too.

Barbara,  What a great story! I love to bake with my grandaughter too.  I also get the
big bag of choc. chips from Costco.  I wonder if we will ever be able to buy a big
bag of dark choc. chips from Costco! Wouldn't that be wonderful!!!

Maddie is graduating from Middle School today with straight A's for the past 3 years.  She still likes to bake, and still loves chocolate chip cookies (as does her older brother).  Yes, Carol I would love to be able to buy the 72 oz bags of dark chocolate chips.  As of now I have to be satisfied with getting the 10 oz size at Target.

P.S.  She also really loves the triple chocolate brownies that I make.

Great story Barbara!  Thanks for sharing.  One of these days your grandaughter will have that recipe memorized too.
