Fresh out of the oven...
"...For a couple of years, my dad allowed me to get experimental with the holiday cookies. He let me pick as many kinds of chocolate as I wanted to chop up and throw in the batter. I always loved mint chocolate, so was extra excited that I got to customize my own batch with my favorite candy. No one in the family touched the mint chocolate chip cookies except for me (not that I’m complaining about getting a whole batch to myself!). They were probably, objectively, pretty awful. But, the realization that baking didn’t have to be by the book, the freedom of knowing I could experiment, opened a world of possibility that I carry with me today."
