Best Ever Cottage Chocolate Chip Cookies
Mom's Christmas Chocolate Roll
For years, I have been asked for the recipe for my "best ever" chocolate chip cookies. Well, here it is. The secret is to slightly underbake them, which keeps them chewy and tasting a little bit like that raw cookie dough we all secretly love. My sister-in-law Amanda has stolen the torch for making the best batch - I suppose they are a bit of a craft. My mom has to hide these from my husband or they disappear in seconds.

Mom’s Saucy Apple Cake
This is my mom's version of a Yuletide log, a Christmas tradition at the Magwood table. It's far more casual than the usual fancy version, and so delicious. Now that our family numbers ten adults and ten kids, she may need to make three! The chocolate sauce comes from a cookbook of my great-grandmother's.
This is yet another family dessert favourite. The kids love the sauce—but what’s not to love about sugar and butter! When apple season hits, my dad’s orchard yields way more than “an apple a day,” so here is a sweet ending.
