I have a little friend. He is not just little, he is very little. Two-months-old-little. And he is the first American in his family. Being the good auntie that I am, I told his mom that I needed to teach her how to make chocolate chip cookies, because Baby B would need them someday. He is American, after all, and American children (and adults) love chocolate chip cookies. His mom was all over it. She had taught me how to make Brazilian chocolate and coconut cake for my husband, so now it was time for me to teach her how to make the true American cookie.

(You won't see me in any of the pictures, I am behind the camera and barking orders.)
|Ahh... the best part of baking!|
|Waiting for the cookies to come out of the oven...|
|Cookies are done. Time to try them with milk! (Is there anything more American than cookies and milk? I mean, besides apple pie?)|
|Baby, I know you can't eat it yet, but someday you will be so grateful Tia Tiffany gave your Mamae this lesson. Trust me.|
And then, of course, I had to take pictures of our cookies. (Surprised? Nah...)
