Many Ronald McDonald Houses have big cookie jars in their kitchens. And children like Georgia, love when volunteers fill them up with freshly baked treats. Pick a Saturday or Sunday, and offer to fill up the cookie jar at your local House or Family Room with these salted chocolate chip cookies. We’re sure that these classic comforts will make many mouths very happy.
