My Latest Thing....

...is to go to Flickr and look for new recipes. That's what I did with these. I did a search for cookies and these came up. I also found those "World Famous" Bluelicious Muffins off of Flickr. I can't wait to find more recipes off of there, I'll of course share the yummy ones with you! What caught my eye about these cookies was, this: These cookies will be soft and taste "store bought". If you try these you won't be dissapointed!
"Erin's Famous Chocolate Chip Cookies"
2 sticks of butter, softened
1 cup of light brown sugar
3/4 cup of sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 TBLS vanilla extract
3 cups of flour, sifted (very important step!)
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3 cups chocolate chips
DIRECTIONS:
Preheat oven to 350.Cream butter with sugars. Add eggs and vanilla and mix until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add (in small increments) the sifted flour, baking soda, and salt (I like to sift those 3 ingredients together). Stir in chocolate chips.Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper (it makes clean-up so much easier!). Form 2 tbls worth of dough into a ball and gently flatten into a patty (a cookie scoop works great for this). Place patties about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes until top of cookies are dry but very light in color.

See you soon with more treats!
