In my free time, I love to bake. I love to see the smiles on my kid’s 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 a severe allergy to milk when she was small. 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. 

It is time to make your memories! Here is my super duper recipe for my Short Cut Chocolate Chip Cookies.

  1. I just made these. Oh. My. Gosh! They are delicious! (I did have a few caramel chips to use up, so I tossed those in.) I think it’s because the brown sugar > white sugar. I love them, and my kids will too. Thanks for sharing your talent.
