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 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!
