I really don’t think it is ever TOO early to start baking cookies together with your daughter. Brooker did an amazing job mixing the dough. (In case you were wondering, I did not eat any dough in front of her ((I went in the other room to eat it)) because that would just be cruel).
I wanted to make a cookie that would be perfect for ice cream sandwiches and I did it. I didn’t want them very thick but I did want them extra chewy.
Best Ice-Cream Cookie Sandwich Cookies:
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup vegetable oil
Cream the above ingredients together and then add 2 eggs and mix and then add the rest of the ingredients.
3 1/4 cups unpacked flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 bag white chocolate chips and 1/2 bag milk chocolate chips (I did a few with semi-sweet chocolate chips because my friends are crazy and think that those belong in cookies?!?)
350 degrees for 9ish minutes
Makes about 40 cookies
Bangs Friend did something for me that I will owe her for for the rest of my life.
She made me my mom’s lasagna.
My mom has made her lasagna for me for my birthday every single year of my life and this was the first year that I was away from her and didn’t partake in her lasagna. Bangs made it so that I wouldn’t have to miss out.
I felt like I was at my mom’s kitchen table in Utah eating my favorite noodle/meat/cheese combination. It was the best way to end my birthday week celebration.
You really must make these cookie sandwiches. If you do make them you HAVE to use vanilla bean ice-cream because that made them extra amazing.
Do you have the day off today? Any fun plans for President’s Day?
Do you have a favorite family recipe?
-PS let me know if you want my mom’s lasagna recipe.
