Chocolate Chip Day

May 15th was National Chocolate Chip Day, or so I was happy to believe.  Our class for middle school students with severe intellectual disabilities celebrated by making chocolate chip sugar cookies and peanut butter cookies with chocolate chips.

While we were waiting for all the ingredients to get on the table, we enjoyed some old-fashioned butter cookies...  Do you recall putting these cookies on your fingers like this?  You eat the "petals" first, then the inside ring.
 We cheated and used a mix for both types of cookies, but we still had to stir them up.
 After placing a ball of cookie dough on the foil we used our fingers to put the chocolate chips on each cookie.  Some chips accidentally fell into our mouths...
 A few students squashed the cookie dough balls by pressing on top with a flat bottom glass.
 The more chocolate chips you add, the better the flavor.
 We didn't have to wait too long to enjoy the results.  It was hard not to sample them before they cooled.
