Strawberry Pie..*

Ever since I bought my ‘wannabe’ Kitchen Aid, I’m totally into baking. When I’m invited by friends to come over for diner or drinks, I’ve created the habit of always taking something with me. It used to be a bottle or wine, or something alike, but lately it’s often something ‘sweet’. Some cookies, macaroons, cupcakes and last friday: a strawberry pie!

Out of all the things I have tried out (until today), the Chocolate Chip Cookies are definitely my favorite! They are very easy to make, so there is actually no point in buying them ready-made. Even someone that can’t bake an egg, can make these cookies. And that’s why I’m sharing this recipe with you.
