United Way of McPherson County is working to build a stronger community by addressing issues related to health, education and income. We believe conversations and intensive listening are the best ways to understand the real problems and move beyond short-term solutions. Community change can be accomplished through broad participation and collaboration. We encourage McPherson County residents to be involved with their community through giving, advocating and volunteering. By working together we can make a larger impact on the issues at hand.

Today is National Chocolate Chip Day. Yummy!

The best way to celebrate with chocolate chip cookies. I have a scrumptious recipe given to me by my mother-in-law. Carol was the best cookie maker ever! Her cookies were not too hard, not too soft. The secret? Use half butter and half shortening. She was also the best at dropping the cookie dough on the cookie sheet in perfect rounds using two teaspoons. Me? I can only accomplish a perfectly round cookie by using a scoop.

Several years ago I arrived home from work to the the smell of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. My son had attempted to make a batch of grandma's cookies. The cookies were lined on the cooling rack ready for the taste test. I bit into the warm cookie and was overwhelmed. The chocolate chips melted in my mouth, the buttery flavor was light and there was just a hint of vanilla. My son had captured his grandmother's recipe perfectly, even better than me the self-proclaimed restaurant owner and baker!

To this very day I am thrilled when my son bakes a batch of grandma's chocolate chip cookies. In addition to baking a scrumptious cookie, he has conquered the perfectly rounded shape (using a cookie scoop). Grandma's legacy lives on.
