This is my weekend told in pictures.
There was some crafting.
Some visiting with my son and grands.
(Yes, that's my sneakered foot. I'm multi-talented. I can take photos and keep a toddler on the sofa at the same time, which is, from the amusement on the grand's face and the concern on the son's, perhaps not something I should try often.)
This is the regular straight-off-the-bag recipe, which I've included below just in case. The thing is, I love to play with the two or three cups of added ingredients at the very end. For example, my cookies have one cup of chocolate chips, ½ cup crasins, and ½ cup chopped walnuts. I didn't mess with that third cup thing, but you could. Sometimes I add peanut butter chips, white chocolate chips, Rice Krispies, oatmeal, you name it, it's fun to play with different combinations. I do want to say very clearly right now before some wise guy comes in here and asks — I.did.not.use.any.onions. What combinations do you use?
Original NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
1 cup chopped nuts optional
PREHEAT oven to 375° F.
COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels and nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.
BAKE for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
A wonderful Monday to you! Yes, you!!
