It's 2 AM and I finally write a blurb.




For the past few days, I've been unloading my old livejournal posts into this blog and would like to do the same for another blog I have out there...also old. Just migrate everything. I've also been working on sewing a dress I thought I've almost given up on. Been playing on this blog too much.

Today, or yesterday, technically, I drove around with April and Rob and Rick and we picked up storage, in both rain and shine, and hung out at her Mom's.











I meandered at home with them afterwards, still playing with my journal and my dress, and more recently..baked some yummy gooey cookies.





Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups (about 12 ounces) semisweet and/or milk chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda; set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the butter with both sugars; beat on medium speed until light and fluffy. Reduce speed to low; add the salt, vanilla, and eggs. Beat until well mixed, about 1 minute. Add flour mixture; mix until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  2. Step 2

    Drop heaping tablespoon-size balls of dough about 2 inches apart on baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
  3. Step 3

    Bake until cookies are golden around the edges, but still soft in the center, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven, and let cool on baking sheet 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack, and let cool completely. Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature up to 1 week.

    I used about twice the butter, spoon stirred and mixed all the ingredients in a  bowl. Did not use a wire rack but they cookies were awesome!!


All Glory, Praise, Thanks and all things be to almighty God on the highest forever and ever in Jesus name, amen. God is able to do above all we ask or think!
