Chocolate Chip Cookies
This incident occurred with us when my little brother who during his vacations frequently helped my mother in the kitchen doing chores, and in return would always get his favorite chocolate chip cookies.
Once he insisted to learn the method for preparing the cookies himself so he could eat them fresh whenever he had an urge. So one fine day my mother along with me and my brother started the process of making cookies from scratch.
As the process started and every thing was perfect, and though my little brother was making chocolate chip cookies for the first time he was not nervous and started reading the recipe card on his own and then he suddenly asked my mother, “Why do I have to leave the room?” “What do you mean?” she asked.
“Come and look at the recipe,” he said. “It says right here, ‘Leave room for spreading.’” Both of us had a great laugh and later we enjoyed munching the cookies.
