Cookies and Christmas, it just goes together so well, doesn't it?
Each year I make at least too types of cookies, and these are the same cookies that my mom used to make each Christmas. Christmas was the one time a year that we would bake cookies growing up, so these certainly bring back Christmas past for me..
For these I used;
2 1/4 sticks of soft butter
10Ts of sugar
12ts brown sugar
300 grams of flour
1ts baking soda
1 1/2 cups of nuts (I used walnuts)
200 grams of chocolate pieces
they are placed on wax paper by the teaspoon full, with a top or they will get very flat when baked.
Baked on low, 250 or so for 8-10 min.
My favorite part of these chocolate chip cookies is getting a big chunk of semi sweet chocolate and chopping it up myself..
And yet another favorite part is dressing up the cookie jar and making it part of the Christmas decorations, as well as wrapping little individual boxes for neighbors and friends.
The other night I felted a gnome for Keenan to go with the book Pico the gnome, and well these little guys are addictive, tonight I want to attempt a female. Aren't they sweet?
I though I might make some more and add to my Etsy shop, which I have left positively abandoned.
I used this tutorial and adjusted it to fit my need as I was not making ornament.
~with so much love~
