The Secret to Perfect Cookies

I have struggled my whole life with making cookies. I can never get it right! They're too hard, too crumbly, over-cooked, under-cooked, what have you. I have tried many different recipes, different pans, even different kinds of flour.

Well - today, I finally figured it out. The secret isn't the ingredients. It's the order in which you mix them! You have to WHIP your butter, eggs, and sugar until they're light and fluffy. Then, add your SIFTED flour slowly. WHO KNEW?!?!

To top it off, I put a piece of Lindt chocolate on each cookie. HEAVEN!!!
