Growing up my grandma always had 2 things in her refrigerator when we visited: Prices Cheese Spread and salsa. We would go through the whole container of cheese spread quickly. I was a pretty picky eater as a kid so I'm kind of surprised I liked it so much.
When I realized I could make my own Pimento Cheese Spread I ran to the store....okay I drove....I only run if I'm being chased. We almost always have all the ingredients on hand, so I just had to buy Pimentos. (I've never bought them so I had to do a little searching - they are buy the canned veggies and beans.)

These giant M&M cookies will bring a smile to anyone's face! They are HUGE, chewy, and a little crunchy around the edges...just the way I like my cookies.
Kansas City got hit with another storm this past weekend. Luckily the bulk of the snow missed us but still looks messy outside. I've always lived in the mid-west so I'm totally okay with the changing seasons. I prefer cold over hot so more snow is okay with me! (Don't throw things at me.) I also enjoy the chance to stay inside, where it's warm, and spend time in the kitchen. That meant it was a perfect day to make cookies. Huge cookies.

I am a sucker for all things cookies, especially chocolate chip cookies. As soon as I saw this recipe I had to try it; I was intrigued by the use of cornstarch. I was a little bummer I had to chill the dough before baking....patience is not my strong suit. Luckily these cookies were totally worth the wait!
The finished product is a perfectly soft and chewy chocolate chip cookie. Very much like those soft baked cookies they sell, except way better. This is definitely one of the best chocolate chip cookies I've had.
