Joy  is a huge fan of Payal's  baking... This quiet sweet girl is  an all rounder.. represents her college in hockey, scores A s, bakes  a mean brownie/ choco-chip cookies !!!  That's quiet a combination, isn't it! Payal shared this recipe with me after Joy went all gaga over the cookies Payal had baked...
