I am pleased to present my all-time favorite dessert recipe for company: chocolate chip cookies.
What do I mean, ‘for company’? Well, you remember how in the Little House on the Prairie books, Ma Ingalls made Vanity Cakes whenever ‘company’ (i.e. visitors) came over or when there was a super special occasion? Other times, she made desserts out of things they had on hand, like in-season fruit pies or maple candy. But for company, she often whipped out her vanity cakes because were quick, easy, delicious, and offered an element of fanciness to the gathering.
