From the King Ranch Kitchen: Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

One way or another, it all comes back to the kitchen.

There are traditions around the ranch centered on something carried, piping hot from the house, shared amongst the team for sustenance and camaraderie in the longer, darker days of winter.

For four generations, Tina Munoz’s family has been a part of King Ranch, and her chocolate chip cookies are known far and wide. Tina loves to share these cookies, and we hope they find a place in your traditions, too.
