Darby Reese, the owner of the Golden Pear (formerly known as The Dory) is well-known for her chocolate chip cookies…In fact they’ve been compared to sunrises in Paris, sunsets in Key West and are often declared better than you know what…If you can’t make it to Queensbay and The Golden Pear to get one for yourself – try her recipe.
The secret – lots of chocolate chips – don’t be afraid to mix in chips and chunks and a little more brown sugar than white sugar and sea salt – for just a bit more texture than your ordinary cookies. Be prepared to be amazed.
