Our sweet, pesky hens continue to lay through winter. Yeah!
Sorry I've been an absent blogger lately. I’m sure it doesn’t interest you to hear about all my day to day drudgery and drivel. I’ve been hunkered down on these dark days of winter, trying not to let life bring me down. It’s not all bad. I’ve had a chance to make some headway on the extra long hat I’ve been knitting for my mother-in-law for the last year.
Iz and I baked cookies.
Have you ever thought about the fact that you bake cookies, and you cook bacon?
These were a bit of an accident. I was out of regular flour, so we used bread flour in the traditional tollhouse chocolate chip cookie recipe. It made for a more cakey, thicker cookie I can really sink my teeth into. Yum!
Cakey Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 3/4 cups bread flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 large eggs
Sift flour, baking soda and salt together. Set aside.
Soften butter. Add sugars and mix until smooth and fluffy.
Add vanilla and eggs. Mix well. Add flour mixture and blend.
Add chocolate chips. Stir.
If you have any dough left after you’ve taste tested it, roll into balls.
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 11-12 minutes.
I hope you have a great week!
