I recently made the baby a small wall hanging with her name on it.
Big brother was just fascinated with the idea. Every time I would make something he would say "What you making me?" So i decided it was time to make him a little something special with his own name on it. He loves it!!
My oldest decided she wanted something for her room, with her name on it, too. So she and I are working on a wall hanging for her room.
AND COOKIES TOO!
A few days ago my daughter had 2 of her friends over. They both know that I love to make cookies (and eat them). When one of them said she hadn't had any homemade cookies for a while, of course I said I would make her some. I wanted something different, but not too different so I went searching the my recipe collection for a new but classic yummy treat.
I settled on this Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. The cookies were soooo yummy. Somehow crisp on the outside, but soft on the inside. I failed to read the recipe all the way, and didn't realize the recipe called for oatmeal. It just so happened that I had just used the last of it that morning so I left it out (I know they would be oh, so yummy with it!), but they were fantastic without it.
Chocolate Chip Supreme Cookies
1 Cup butter
3/4 Cup firmly packed brown sugar
3/4 Cup Sugar
2 large eggs
1 pkg (3.4 ounce) instant vanilla pudding mix
1 T vanilla extract
2 1/4 Cups all purpose flour
1 T baking soda
1/2 t salt
2 Cups semisweet chocolate morsels
(I didn't use the following ingredients, but they are a part of the original recipe.)
1 1/2 Cups chopped pecans
1 Cup uncooked quick cooking oats
(I added coconut to some of the batter. Very Tasty.)
Beat butter at M speed until creamy. Add sugar beating well. Add eggs beat until blended. Add pudding mix and vanilla beat until well blended.
Combine flour and the next 4 ingredients. Gradually add to butter mixture, beat until blended. Stir in Morsels, pecans, and oats.
Shape dough into 1 1/2 inch balls; place on lightly greased baking sheets, and press to 1 inch thickness.
Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes (or desired doneness). Remove from oven and cool on wire rack.
Yield: 3 dozen
Fancy That, a few simple letters, your Name can make things so meaningful.
And well what can I say cookies are just FANCY!!
