okay…i know everyone knows how to make chocolate chip cookies.
Search Results for: cookies
but these are really good.
my friend jonelle gave me a book of handwritten recipes for my wedding.
this recipe was in it.
she called them the best ever…and i do too.
first thing to do is cream together crisco and sugars.
i like butter flavor crisco.
(there is so much wrong with that sentence – i like butter flavor crisco.)
but to make these delicious cookies…you need it.
or regular shortening is fine too.
then you add your eggs and vanilla.
this is what i think is the key to the yumminess of these cookies –
you add 1 and 1/4 tsp. baking soda dissolved in 1/4 c. water.
kind of seperated…
i think it's hard to see.
then you add the flour salt and baking powder.
then the very best part….
make sure you sneak plenty of dough while you bake.
and if i am feeling nice…i save a little for lauren…her favorite part.
now to bake them.
if i am feeling lazy i put all the dough in a sheet cake pan and make bars.
(i don't know why my blog is double spacing! it's making me crazy!)
but i didn't have sheet cake until last year.
it's just something i never bought. weird right?
so for the past 13 years i just make regular old cookies.
i like them just as much but i tend to burn things (ADD) so the bars are easier.
now just sit back and wait for someone to ring your doorbell
with 50 balloons, a tiara and a plaque that says Mother-of-the-Year.
surely it will happen one of these days right?
recipe is on the sidebar.
*edited: the family thing by the cookies is a sweet gift from my MIL.
it says "family is born out of the laughter of Heaven.
why else would we delight in wiping runny noses
and birthdays that aren't our own."
i found these at little momma and company.
she has such creative fun in her kitchen.
i was in love with the color…of course.
i doubled the recipe since there were four of them.
and i think if i ever do it again…i will make some for me to play with too.
ours looked nothing like little momma’s but that’s not important.
(hers were pretty. ours were not.)
this was just for fun.
and so we could check something else off the summer list.
it is real cookie dough that looks like playdoh.
it was good enough to eat.
and they did.
they each got their own pan.
there was no wrong way to make them.
if we make these again i will add more flour…it was quite sticky.
annie was the only one who wanted to eat annie’s.
they turned out pretty good.
kind of flavorless…but so colorful.
it was a little strange to eat a bright blue cookie.
but they managed to get it done.
and for those of you who will comment that i am “such a fun mom…”
they were all grounded from tv and video games yesterday
and this was to keep my sanity.
and 20 minutes after this….
they all got sent tho their rooms till their dad got home from work.
but i am still a fun mom.
just want you to know (in case you doubted) that we have plenty of UN-fun here too.
ok… my list for the week is slightly depressing.
sean is about halfway through his football season.
and there was cake and candles and singing happy birthday of course.
