And we made chocolate chip cookies

So Skye’s finally gotten tired of her store-bought recess food. My kids don’t eat food from the school canteen. From day one, I’ve had them bring food from home although most of the time, I have to admit they’re store-bought cookies and such.

Anyhoo, Skye decided it’s time to pamper herself with homemade recess food… and so she and Raine helped me make these amazing chocolate chip cookies.

First cream together

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg

Skye did most of the work creaming the mixture but here’s Raine, our diva with her Batman-themed fingernails, taking over for a while so Skye could snap a picture.

Add the dry ingredients and continue mixing till the dough comes together.

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (someone added extra chips when I wasn’t looking 😯 )

Raine did most of the work of plopping spoonfuls of the dough on a baking tin.

Bake at 375 degrees F for 10-15 minutes. Our kitchen quickly smelled like chocolate heaven and even Tyson, our little beagle with the big appetite, ran round in circles wagging his tail hoping to catch a treat.

Well, here they are, the chocolate chip cookies that came out of the oven. So so good that if fingers could drool, I’m sure they would 😉 .

This weekend, we’re making ourselves a carrot cake, and a few more batches of chocolate chip cookies to give away. Pretty excited about that.

What are you up to this weekend? Any baking in your plans?
