I am sorry to announce our last edition of Treat Tuesday. My family owns and RV park and campground, so I'm starting to get pretty busy with that and I'm not sure how much baking and treat making I'll be doing over the next few months. I'll still be blogging, just not making as many treats. With that in mind I hope you enjoy our last Treat Tuesday.
I'm not really sure what to call these cookies. The recipe I used called them Melanie's Chocolate Chip Cookies because the recipe is from one of my mom's old friends named Melanie. Now I thought about just calling them Chocolate Chip Cookies, but I thought that sounded too boring. The recipe has 1 tsp. of almond flavoring so I also thought about calling them Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies, but they don't taste enough like almonds. So In conclusion I decided that I'd give you the recipe, you could make them and then create your own name. One thing I can assure you of though, is that they are good, really good. I mean like really really good. So without further ado here is the recipe:
1 Cup Butter
1 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1 tsp. Vanilla
1 tsp. Almond Flavoring
2 1/2 Cups Flour (I used freshly ground whole wheat)
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Salt
1-1 1/2 Cups Chocolate Chips
Cream the first 5 ingredients together. Next, add the dry ingredients and mix well. Finally stir in the chocolate chips. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 8-10 minutes.
Note: If you use fresh farm eggs you'll need to use up to 3 Cups of flour, depending on there size.
