CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE RECIPE
This cookie makes my heart beat faster. This cookie had me at hello. In fact, I had to take a bite before I actually took the picture, which is why there is a bite missing out of it. Oops, sorry!
This cookie leaves me with very little self-control. That is why it is better if I hide these cookies somewhere or put them in the freezer and remove them out of my sight.
It is also good that my husband doesn't make them that often. Otherwise I could not be held responsible for my actions (or my weight). They're that good. At least, I think so.
You know the saying "That's the way the cookie crumbles?" Well, these cookies sort of fall apart when you eat them. I like that about a cookie. For the record, I can't believe I just wrote that last sentence....or the last three paragraphs for that matter. Never thought I'd be blogging about a cookie for pete's sake.
Also, today is my day to blog over at the Five Mom's blog so I hope you'll visit me over there and learn some of the fun things about being a grownup! But first, here's the recipe (for the cookie, not for the five moms).
CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
1 cup butter (softened but not melted)
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
3 1/2 cups flour
1 cup vegetable oil
1 cup oatmeal (we use regular)
1 cup cereal (can use Rice Crispies, Chex, Cornflakes, Lucky charms, whatever)
1 package chocolate chips
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
Mix all of the ingredients together until it's well mixed. Drop by spoonful onto an ungreased cookie sheet. You can press it down a little if you want, it's up to you. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes.
