Hope you all had as much fun on the 4th as we did here at Mimi's Cottage. In between the bar-b-ques, fireworks, potato salad, and mosquitoes I made these cookies. The recipe is from Sweet Cottage Dreams and they really are yummy. So if it's not too hot to turn on your oven you should give them a try.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2 softened sticks butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar firmly packed
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
3 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1-12 oz bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
optional: 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Combine flour, soda, and salt in a bowl and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl beat butter til light and fluffy. Add the sugars. Beat until smooth. Add vanilla and eggs. Beat til fluffy.
Slowly add the flour mixture. Beat until thoroughly mixed. Stir in the chocolate chips and walnuts.
Place spoon sized dollops of cookie dough 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes-til golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
Thank you Becky! They were a big hit!
