I just made some cookies for my Open House, and, not to toot my own horn but - they are dee-licious!
I love baking cookies just before Open Houses because a) have something to offer to people walking in; b)it fills the house with the aroma of baked goods, since the cookies are still cooling off; and c) I'll have something to do(eat) in case no one shows up!:)
Here's the recipe...if anyone has a problem with my posting a recipe here, then...no cookie for you!:)
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup margarine or butter
2 eggs(OR, I substituted 1/2 mashed banana for the eggs and I think that's why they are so good!)
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup chocolate chips
3-4 Kissables pressed into the top of each cookie before baking
1. Mix sugar, eggs(or mashed banana), shortening, and vanilla in large bowl. Add flour, salt, and baking soda to creamed mixture and blend well Add the chocolate chips.
2. Drop dough by teaspoonful onto cookie sheet. Slightly push a few Kissables on top of each cookie.
3. (Optional) To further prevent spreading I put the prepared cookie sheet in the freezer for 5-10 minutes.
4. Bake at 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes.
I'm off to the open house now - ENJOY!
