In the Kitchen Tonight: Barbara Bush’s Famous Chocolate Chip Cookies

Barbara Bush’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

We made former First Lady Barbara Bush’s famous chocolate chip cookies in the kitchen tonight. Mrs Bush was known for her friendliness and fun but above all – she was truly dedicated and loyal to her family. It’s not surprising at all that she would have a treasure trove of family recipes and how generous it was of her to share them so that we could enjoy them too!
