It's funny to see the perception of Americans from the German point of view. I was grocery shopping the other day and came across these cookies that were simply called "American Style Cookies". So I bought them, I just had to know what an "American Style Cookie" was! Rick and I did the taste test and sure enough...they were Chips Ahoy Cookies! So the next time you enjoy a Simple Chips Ahoy, know that it's what the Germans believe to be "American Style Cookies"!!
