Dear Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough,

Thank you for the much needed reprieve and comfort these last couple of days.  I know by eating so much of you that I went well beyond the caloric bounds of even a nursing woman. But, I don't regret it. I'm not saying I won't . . . but for now, I don't. My only regret is that I cooked any of you. Until we meet again, face to face.



Chocolate Chip Dough (Cookies)
  • 1 cup softened butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. plus a pinch salt
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
(Preheat oven to 350*F.) Cream together butter and sugars until creamy: 3-5 min. on medium speed. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well. Add the salt, baking powder and soda, and flour. Mix well. Add the chocolate chips and mix once more. (Spoon on to cookie sheet and bake for 12-14 minutes or until lightly browned. Let cool on rack.)


  1. I could use some of those right about now!

  2. Yeah! Especially after running your half-marathon - you've earned them for sure!! Haha. :)
