For the next week, I will provide a recipe every day that I like from the Mary Hunt's book, Debt-Proof the Holidays. I am hoping that these give you some ideas for homemade gift-giving this Holiday season!
Easiest Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 2/3 C all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 C white sugar
2 C semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 C packed brown sugar
Combine the flour, baking soda, white sugar, and the chocolate chips. Place 1/2 the mixture in a jar and pack firmly. Place the brown sugar on top, again packing firmly. Finish with the remaining mixture on top.
Attach this message to the jar:
Empty contents of jar into a large bowl. In seperate bowl combine 3/4 cup softened butter, 2 eggs and 1 tsp vanilla. Beat until creamy. Add to dry mixture. Drop by spoonful onto an ungreased cookie sheet and bake in a preheated 375 oven for 8-10 minutes. Yield: 2 dozen
