Making Cookies with Leah

Today is Tuesday. We're two days into the first full week of summer break. Leah always ask me to make cookies. I usually say no and tell her we have Keeblers in the pantry so why should we labor over cookie making. But today we decided to make cookies together. Paige was at an all day VBS event. She went to Incredible Pizza and then to the local swimming pool. I'm sure Jen and Shorty imparted some spiritual truths along the way today. Leah and I stopped by the grocery store on the way home from our VBS. We picked up some peanut butter chocolate swirl morsals. I also picked up a 2 lb flour and sugar just to make sure I had enough. It takes me probably 2 years to go through a 4 lb sack of flour. I just don't enjoy baking so I rarely use the flour. Anyway, I went to my favorite recipe website http://www.allrecipes.com/ and picked out a yummy looking cookie recipe for us to make.
It was called Best Big, Fat Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie. It had pretty basic ingredients so I went with that. The cookies turned out delicious and Leah had a great time making them.
Keep this website in mind if you need to look for a recipe. You can literally quit buying recipe books. I use this website all the time.

Your right www.allrecipes.com is a wonderful website! I especially like all the comments the users post so you know if it is worth it or not. I also really enjoy this "copycat" website for all different restaurants:
