It's getting colder by the minute. I think it's going to snow again. Sigh. I really am tired of the snow and cold, but the nice thing about it is that I can snuggle with the boys. Davy came this morning with this darling and very warm hat on. He looks so cute in it.
We did make cookies today. They came out really good.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
1 pound butter softened, (four sticks or two cups)
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar firmly packed
Add to creamed butter and sugar
2 eggs beaten
1 Tablespoon vanilla
and beat till fluffy.
4 cups flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
in a bowl and stir dry ingredients together. Add spoonful at at time to mixture and beat on low till well blended
1 cup of coarsely chopped walnuts
1 12 oz pkg chocolate chips
Stir till blended.
You don't have to grease the cookie sheet, but I either spray it a little bit or use parchment paper liner. I actually use a small ice cream scoop (about 1.5 inch) to shape the cookies. They all come out the same size that way. Bake at 350 for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown.
This recipe is good for high altitude cookies. I live at 7600 feet.
