2.1.08


I know I'm posting this early, but I won't be around too much this weekend. Monday is my birthday and I want to do a vintage GIVEAWAY! It will be full of vintage ribbon, flowers, book pages, and lots of little goodies.

Just leave a comment on this post anytime before Monday afternoon and tell me what your favorite cookie is! (don't forget to leave your email) I'll pick a random post number and post the winner sometime on Monday. I had planned to be hanging around the house watching scrapbooking on QVC and packing class kits, but David informed me that I'll be having a spa day on Monday. Ahhh...I can't wait. :) I'll post the winner when I get home.

I made these cookies tonight and they are so, so good. I kinda modified the original recipe, so I'll just post how I made them here:

Chocolate Mint Chip Cookies

2 1/4 cup unsifted flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 stick margarine
1 stick butter, room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup good chocolate chips (I used Ghirardelli semi-sweet)
2 cups Andes chocolate mint baking chips

Preheat oven to 375. Stir (with a whisk) flour with baking soda and salt; set aside. In large mixer bowl, cream butter with sugar, brown sugar until creamy. Add eggs (one at a time) and vanilla. Gradually blend dry mixture into creamed mixture. Stir in chocolate and mint chips. Drop by tablespoon onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 375 for 12 minutes or until golden brown. Let rest on cookie sheet for 5 minutes before moving cookies to a cooling rack. Makes about 3 dozen good sized cookies.

Have a relaxing weekend!

Happy Birthday!!! Sounds like it will be an awesome, long weekend for you. Enjoy it.

My favorite cookie is basic chocolate chip cookies. Since my son is allergic to eggs we only have egg free cookies at home... but my friends hook me up with some. :)

Happy Birthday!

My favorite is a very special chocolate chip cookie that a co-worker makes. No butter, but uses shortening and cream of tartar they are the best.

Becky said...

Happy Birthday, Jennifer! Enjoy your spa day! My favorite cookie would have to be snickerdoodles!

DLWrules said...

Happy Birthday to you!!!!
I hope someone bakes you a great big chocolate cake!!
My birthday gift to you is a special cookie recipe that my grandmother gave to me. She would make these cookies every year at Christmas until her arthritis made it too difficult for her to roll out the dough. She got the cookies paper thin!! I don't know how she did it, but I'll be making these every Christmas for as long as I can in honor of her.

Sand Tarts

1 pound sugar
½ pound butter (2 sticks)
3 eggs
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon vanilla

Mix ingredients together. Add sifted flour until something like pie dough (approximately 4 cups).
Chill dough overnight.
Roll dough until paper thin, cut into desired shapes. Decorate with colored sugar. Bake at 350 until done.

Happy Birthday!

Your husband is so sweet to send you to a spa!!!

Hope that you and your sweet Noah are feeling better! I just checked out that Hot Chocolate book (from the library!) It's so neat!

Okay, my favorite cookie........
Chocolate Chip. I know, I know -- it ain't sexy, but they're delicious and sooooooo easy to make! Cowboy Cookies are a great "amped up" version!

Have a great birthday and a blessed week-end!
Blessings,
Julie

Anonymous said...

Jennifer, your giveaways are always so much fun. My favorite cookie would be a sugar cookie with chocolate chips stirred in - my grandmother's recipe and my sisters and I have been making them since I was about 9 years old. They are a lighter cookie than the traditional moist Toll House cookie. Have a wonderful birthday and a great spa day!
Cathy

Scrappiegal said...

I'd say my favorite cookies is also a snickerdoodle. I could eat a whole batch on my own, especially with a good cup of coffee. I hope you have a wonderful birthday(how could you not). I love your blog, and I'm so happy your being kind enough to give away a gift on your birthday.

In case I'm the lucky winner...my email is tj925silver@hotmail.com. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!!

natalie said...

choc chip with lots of "healthy" goodies like 1/4 c oat bran, 1/4 c wheat germ, a T of flax seed, and whatever else is lurking in my pantry. just use this on your typical choc chip recipe and you won't even notice the difference, but your body will!
does this make it okay to have 2?

happy, happy birthday!

Chiara said...

Have an absolutely fantastic day and I am not a super huge cookie fan but if I had to choose it would be rainbow cookies.

Happy Birthday!

My favorite cookie is chocolate chip, under cooked just a little so it is soft and a little gooey.

Kris with a K said...

ooo....cookies!!

My favorite are my own Toll House cookies (especially the dough!) Right up there are Chocolate Crinkles (the ones that are rolled in powdered sugar and crack when baked) and Fudge Cookies to Die For (from the Junior Forum cookbook).

rats....better go make some cookie dough. got a craving.

Rebecca G. said...

I hope that you have a very happy birthday! Isn't it amazing how many people will comment on your blog when there is a giveaway? LOL! It happens to all of us. I hope you have an incredible day at the spa. Oh, and my favorite cookie... well, I've always called them Pecan Butter Balls because that's what my mom called them. I just found out over the Christmas holiday that they are actually called Mexican Wedding Cakes. Mmmm... how can you go wrong with pecans, butter and powdered sugar???

Kelly said...

My fave would have to be a homemade chocolate chip cookie... about two minutes out of the oven... the one that starts to sink through the cooling rack and I sneak it in with a cold glass of milk before anyone notices. I mean, *I* don't sneak it, *someone* could... ;-D

Kelly said...

Ugh. Got so caught up in the choc chip cookie fantasy I forgot to wish you a happy birthday!

Angie Tieman said...

THanks for the giveaway, love your blog! My favorite cookies are sugar cookies from Betty Crocker...the old-fashioned kind you have to roll out, cut out with the cookie cutter and decorate with icing and sprinkles! The cookies are made of powdered sugar, and the secret ingredient is almond oil. Yummmy!

Heidi said...

Favorite cookie? Oh, how to choose just one? I think maybe I have a tie for first place: 1) sour cream sugar cookies with butter cream frosting and sprinkles and 2) thicky, chewy but crispy on the edges oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. YUM! :) I could live on either of them!

Hope you have a weekend and a birthday to remember! May this year bring you many blessings and much happiness. :)

allie said...

Just BARELY got done making samoas for the first time. Found the recipe on someone's blog..I can send the link if anyone wants. Email me. They are amazing. :) Happy birthday!

tamivik said...

Hope your have the happiest birthday! Enjoy your spa day! My favorite cookies are Chocolate Marshmallow Cookies! You make a chocolate cookie base, cook that, top it with a 1/2 marshmallow and cook that for another minute and then frost it with chocolate frosting when it cools! A little bit of heaven! YUM!

Happy Birthday to you! Enjoy your day of relaxation and pampering! How lovely.

Cookies are my weak spot. I adore them. I'll have to go with my Almond Biscotti - they're just sooooo good. But Double Chocolate Chunk (a Food network find) is a close second- they're so chocolatey good.

And I just so happen to have a bag of mint chocolate chips in my fridge- maybe I'll have to make some cookies this weekend!

Blessings and wishes for a happy birthday! Thank you for your delightful blog!

Who can beat the old favorite "Oreo" with a cold glass of milk? But, for homemade, my mother-in-law made the best chocolate chip macadamia cookies this side of heaven! I've tried to make them, but they are not the same. I guess it was her sweet hands and love that made them so special. I sure do miss her!

First, Happy Birthday! Cookies, yum! I love Peanut Butter Blossoms with the Hershey kiss int he middle slightly warm. I also love No Bake cookies, when someone else makes them, b/c mine never turn out quite right!

Enjoy your spa day . Jen

Happy Birthday! My fav cookie is a tweaked version of Nestle toll house chocolate chip cookies. I LOVE these cookies, warm and fresh from the oven.

Happy Birthday!! :)

My favorite cookie is a modified chocolate chip cookie that has ground up rice krispies added to the flour, and broken up Nestle's crunch bars as the chips. Yum-o!!!

I would like to state for the record, having eaten over a dozen of the cookies from this batch, that they ROCK.
