Sometimes when we need to get our team together for a meeting I bribe them with healthy snacks (it helps punctuality!).
With a high ratio of young adult males in the mix, for our last gathering I made these chocolate chip cookies in extra large size. They go perfectly with a warm brew or a Holy Mother botanical tea.
