Dutch Chocolate Chip Cookies


“The first step in the acquisition of wisdom is silence, the second listening, the third memory, the fourth practice, the fifth teaching others. ~Solomon Ibn Gabriol

This recipe brings back many fond memories to me of when family and friends would stop by for a visit at our farm.We enjoyed many wonderful conversations at the kitchen table over some freshly brewed coffee and cookies. I hope you enjoy them as well! 😀
