Michael's. Aren't they adorable?
I have to say I got a teensy weensy bit burnt out on cupcakes this week, well the clean up actually, but I was still craving something sweet and homemade. I found a new recipe for chocolate chip cookies while blog browsing and I thought I would give it a try. The kids were very excited to help.
All done!Cowboy Cookies in San Luis Obispo. Mmm. If you have never had Cowboy Cookies then you have to try them!
I wish I had saved the link to the blogger that posted this recipe but sadly, I am infamous for doing things in haste. I copied and printed the recipe and then closed the blog window. If I remember her name I will give her credit. But for now, just know that the recipe is not mine.
THE BEST HOMEMADE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES...EVER2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1tsp baking soda
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup softened butter (I use real butter)
1 tsp vanilla
1-5 oz package vanilla instant pudding mix (JELLO brand)
Chocolate Chips (milk or semisweet, I like semisweet)
Cream butter and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well. In a separate bowl mix pudding mix, soda, and salt. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients. Stir in chocolate chips. Add flour bit by bit until texture is right (You should be able to roll dough into a ball in your hands. If it is too sticky, add more flour.) Mix well. Bake at 350 degrees on an ungreased cookie sheet until edges are just browning (12-14 minutes depending on your oven and your elevation)
I got a thumbs up from the pickiest kid in America! He honestly is.
We came up with a list of 12 things he likes to eat. Only 12. And two of them, mac and cheese and bacon, aren't even that great for you! He has been known to thumb his nose up at cakes, cookies, ice cream, and cupcakes if they don't meet his high standards.
But both kids absolutely devoured them!
