In my free time, I love to bake. I love to see the smiles on my kids faces when a fresh pan of cookies comes out of the oven. Oh, and my house at Christmas time, let’s just say you need to put on pants with an elastic waistband.
My daughter was diagnosed with severe allergy to milk. So, it has slowed my baking down a little. It took us awhile to convert my old recipes into new ones. I was a big butter baker. I have since had to change. Now, I have found that if I use butter flavored Crisco I get pretty good results. I get alright results with margarine, but the best with good old butter. Also, Ghiradelli Chocolate chips don’t have milk!
It is a weekend, so I found myself craving something sweet again. My son requested Chocolate Chip cookies because they are his favorite. So, I caved in. My Grandmother is visiting us from out of town and we have had a really nice time. Her and my oldest played a game of UNO while a baked this afternoon. Grandma used to bake all of the time like I do now. I remember being little and her pulling out Oatmeal Raisin Cookies from the oven! They are so super yummy while they are still warm!
It is time to make your own memories! Here is my super duper recipe for my Short Cut Chocolate Chip Cookies.
