Les Cookies: The Parisian Chocolate-Chip Craze

There were lots more brands and lots more packages and seeing them all lined up made me wonder if the next time I got into a food conversation with a Parisian taxi-driver, most of whom think that Americans eat nothing but hamburgers and that all those burgers come from McDo (the French nickname for McDonald’s), I might find a way to bring the chat around to cookies and see if I could win a few points for our side.  I doubt it’ll work, but it’s worth a try.

I probably should have bought some cookies to taste-test, but I’ll be baking my own chocolate chippers this afternoon, because if Santa can make it down our clogged chimney, he’ll really have earned a treat.
