When we approached Chef Vincent Lesage and asked him what his favorite holiday cookie recipe is, we got an instant answer ... "This is the best chocolate chip cookie you will ever have. Just follow the steps and make sure you measure everything in grams, which makes the recipe much more precise."

Here is an early holiday gift from our Meritage family to yours. Enjoy!
