Whoops Wednesdays

Whoops… Somehow I seriously missed Tasty Tidbit Tuesday. I guess the holidays are busier than I thought! But I didn’t 100% forget y’all; I am posting one last cookie before the Christmas festivity next Tuesday!

Many lovers of cookies have their favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe, and I am no exception. I love Nestle. The original Nestle. The too & goodness Nestle. So here it is, but be warned; room temperature eggs & butter is key. KEY.

Original Nestle Tollhouse Chocolate Chip Cookies

This famous classic American cookie is a treat no matter what the age or occasion. Enjoy it with a glass of cold milk.

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 room temp
2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ TOLL HOUSE Semi-Sweet Chocolate MorselsNESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
1 cup chopped nuts (totally optional)

Directions
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.

Favorite Sugar Cookie Recipe

I may have given the wrong Rolled Sugar Cookies page number last week… On purpose. No cheating! 🙂 All I know is that our family is very thankful or Mrs. Robert Collins of Fairfax, Missouri!

Southern Living 1979 Annual Recipes
Rolled Sugar Cookies

3 c all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp soda
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1 c shortening (no butter!)
2 eggs, beaten
1 c sugar
1/4 c milk
1 tsp

Combine flour, baking powder, soda, & nutmeg; cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Combine eggs, sugar, milk, & vanilla; mix well, & pour into crumb mixture. Stir with a fork until all dry ingredients are moistened. Shape into a ball, & chill 1-2 hours.
Work with half of dough at a time; store remainder in refrigerator. Roll dough out on a lightly floured board to 1/8″ thickness; cut with shaped cookie cutters. Place on lightly greased cookie sheets; bake at 375 for 8-9 minutes until very lightly browned.
Yield: 4 1/2 doz.

Easy peasy frosting: powdered sugar, milk to taste, food coloring. Mix to a spreadable but not too runny so that it oozes off.

Now, go eat!!

Concert Love

Concert Love

I get to see my favorite band this weekend. So excited. While this isn’t my favorite venue this is my favorite living band. It’s a loud venue with poor ventilation in a not so well lit area of town. Now, it could have changed since I last ventured down there, & that is my great prayer because I AM going. Again, they’re my favorite band!

 

Rock on friends!

Where have you gone just because you love someone/something & you don’t like the place itself?

Great Outdoors: Parking It in The Grass

image

In most places Spring is still sprung. Sadly in Texas we’ve already crossed into dangerous territory called summer. So here in the South West (because Texans don’t call themselves Southerners) we folks are migrating either indoors for expensively cool activities, towards large bodies of water,  or towards hours of the day most call dawn & dusk.

So here’s a question for y’all who have 4 seasons each year:
What is your favorite activity/game you play in the grass during warmer months?
