Phoebe Buffay’s grandma’s chocolate chip cookies
I have been waiting to post this recipe for so long now and I am so extremely happy that I can finally share it with you all, as I’m a massive massive MASSIVE Friends fan. I watch the entire Friends box every year and even have books, games, the whole lot! Although they feature a lot of food in Friends, there is one episode that really stands out. If you are a die-hard fan like me, you will surely remember the episode where Monica tries her hardest to recreate Phoebe’s grandma’s chocolate chip cookie recipe.
Phoebe had sworn to her grandma to never reveal the secret recipe, but Monica really wants is as an engagement present. When Phoebe finally agrees to give the recipe to Monica, she finds out the recipe is destroyed in the fire at Phoebe’s apartment, so she gives Monica the only cookie left as a present so that Monica can try to recreate it, simply by tasting. When Monica gives up trying to figure out the recipe and asks if there isn’t anyone else who might know the recipe, Phoebe reveals that her grandma got the recipe from her French grandmother, Nestley Toulouse. It’s then that they realize the cookies they were trying to make are the famous chocolate chip cookies by Nestlé Toll House, which has the recipe printed on the back of each cookie bag, which also made it a lot easier for me to recreate the cookies as well.
I really wish I could show you guys a clip from the episode, but it’s impossible to find it online apart from this bad quality clip, so you’ll just have to pop in the DVD and check out season 7 – episode 3.
