Ella has a new favorite snack...Animal Crackers. She loves to name each animal and then tell me what noise it makes. Pretty stimulating for a cookie! I'm just in love with the way she says "aminal" also.
Along with the Cookie theme of this blog, I thought I'd share a favorite recipe I made for this weekend. I know that everyone has their own favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe, but this one is especially good and very easy. I made them for a picnic and we ate them again when friends came over Friday and Saturday nights. So, for the Sara(h)s that mentioned wanting this recipe-- here it is!
Award Winning Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 cup melted butter (no substitutes)
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 white sugar
1 package (3.4 oz.) instant vanilla pudding mix
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups chocolate chips
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine flour and baking soda, set aside. Blend butter and sugars. Stir in pudding mix until blended. Stir in eggs and vanilla. Add dry ingredients. Stir in chips and nuts. Drop cookies by spoonful onto cookie sheets. Bake 10-12 minutes. Makes a little over 3 dozen. Can easily double recipe.
