Thin Crisp Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Magically disappearing cookies, just see for yourself.  Bake them.  Turn your back and suddenly "poof" they are gone.  I ask my three mice, "Did you just eat the tray of cookies?".  "No","no" and "no" they quip.  Must have been our friendly ghost Fred.

"Mom the lady who talks like a cowgirl ate raw eggs on her cooking show.  I thought you told us not to eat raw eggs.."   I assume she is referring to Paula Dean.  Don't you love the world through a child's eyes and yes I told them not raw cookie dough.  Amazing that all of us survived years of raw cookie dough.

 mix until just combined

add chips and refrigerate

bake and they will disappear
