Cooked by Jade

I'm catching up a little bit on cookies. The first pic of Amara baking cookies was before Christmas!! They're the same ones she told "Santa" about when she said that I didn't give her credit! Sheesh! The second one was more recent of myself when I made some that have the dough premade in the huge tub. No matter how huge we ate it in record time. I turned around and they were gone. Any how, here's the famous tollhouse cookies!! :D

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks0 butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
One 12-oz pkg. (2) cups semisweet chocolate morsels
1 cup chopped nuts (be careful with these, magical imps about 4 feet tall often come while you're not looking to steal them, the same goes with the chocolate morsels although much larger ones ranging in size also come.)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside. In a large mixer bowl combine butter, sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract; beat until creamy. Beat in eggs. Gradually add flour mixture. Stir in chocolate morsels and nuts. Drop by rounded measuring tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 375 degrees F, for 9-10 minutes. Makes 5 dozen 2 1/4 inch cookies.

Or get gargantuan tubs and spoonfeed to little imps! Hehe.

    Another well done job, Jade. Your cookies look very nice indeed. Unlike mine that gets runny all over.

    Jade, you are a good model for the other girls. I wish my stepdaughter will have the same passion for the kitchen!

    Thank you all, daw sa mga titas, sabi ni Jade.

    Wala kaming internet sa bahay ngayon, so Jade is out of service this week :)
