One of my most favorite blogs is Brown Eyed Baker . She post the most mouth watering recipes and I’ve been dying to try a few. In fact, last Thursday I made her Jalapeno Popper Dip to take to Bunco. One girl told me it was the best thing she had ever tasted and asked if I put crack in it! ha ha. It is definitely not healthy but it is great for potlucks or monthly Bunco games!
Last night I was browsing Brown Eyed Bakers top 10 list and really wanted to try her chocolate chip cookie recipe. I’m always looking for an excuse to make cookies! 😉 So tonight after dinner I got out my baking supplies only to realize we were out of chocolate chips. I ran down to the Dollar General and got 2 packs just so I had enough. You can never have too many chocolate chips right? Then I looked at my recipe and realized I needed Baking Soda, not Baking Powder. UGH! I was having a blonde moment. I tried calling my neighbor/friend Christa to bum some off of her but she wasn’t answering her phone. I went next door to another neighbor and they weren’t home. I was starting to think this was a sign that I did not need these cookies! I broke down and drove 2 minutes down the road to the little old grocery store and got me 2 boxes of Baking Soda! Whew, all that work for cookies. I’m so glad I followed through with this recipe b/c oh.my.goodness they are soooo good! She says something about making a big ball, break in half, blah blah blah but I just made big balls of cookie dough. At first it looked like they weren’t cooking right but they are just lighter in color. I think mine did take 20 minutes to bake even though she said 15-18 minutes. I can’t say enough just how yummy these cookies are! Enjoy the recipe!
