Here are the answers to the questions...
1. Favorite cookie? You all made me drool. I had forgotten all about Monster Cookies, Katie. LOVE them. And the Melt In Your Mouth Sugar Cookies are sooo good! I'll post a recipe for them in the near future. And too poor for chocolate chips?? I was totally born into the right generation. For all of you who said Chocolate Chip, I love you the best. But I'm not partial.
2. Who is the baby? I must confess, to console you, Brad even guessed the wrong baby...
For those of you who guessed right, I think you are the most brilliant.
3. And the grand total of chips...
TA-DA!!!! (First, a disclaimer. The video was for dramatic purposes only. Due to an extreme need to make cookies on Friday afternoon, in part as a comfort for a friend having a rotten day and in part to take out of town for our girls' get-away, I had to dip into the bowl and remove 2 cups of chips. So if you watch the video and think it looks like too few, you are right. But the count is accurate as it was when the contest was posted!)
For those of you who were off by appalling numbers, I beg you to get more familiar with your chocolate chips. It shows me that you are lacking quality time with chips in your life. I'm sorry for you. I'm disappointed in you. But I believe in you. You can do it.
I do so wish I had a consolation prize for dear Phyllis, who actually got chips out and tried to get an idea of how many she might be looking at. She even tried to approximate based on the tile size on my counter. She was thrown off by the fact that our tile is actually 12x12. Otherwise you totally would have had it, Phyllis. I love the effort you put into it!
So, based on Chocolate Chip Count, the winner is....LOIS!! Congratulations! You are definitely the anointed one. You have a gift of chocolate chip approximations. And I know it is in large part due to the fact that you are a self-professed chocolate chip cookie snob! Way to go!!
Wasn't that fun?! We'll do this again sometime. Thanks for playing!!
