Wanna cookie?

A sweet tooth has hit me today so instead of a batch of cookies I went with this giant cookie! No, my sweet tooth wasn't THAT big, but by the time everyone that will come in this house this evening takes a portion it should be gone by bedtime! Well....ok...maybe I will stash a small piece for a coffee break tomorrow! But then it's gone!
I thought I'd share the recipe with you today...
1/2 cup softened butter
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/3 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup chocolate chips (I used miniature)
Cream butter, brown sugar and sugar in mixer bowl until light. Beat in egg. Add flour, baking soda and salt. Mix well. Stir in vanilla. Fold in chocolate chips. Spread evenly  with dampvhand onto greased pizza pan. Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until light brown. Serves 8-10. Enjoy!

Fall has arrived.....

And along with it comes more hot and hearty meals and pumpkin pie! It was a chili and pumpkin pie kinda night last night!  If you want the recipe, I just use the one that's on the can of pumpkin with a slight change...I use Splenda for recipes.  I will also divide the sugar and use part brown. And I do make my own pie crust...using the Crisco recipe.
Also sharing a little somehing I worked on last week....
He's headed to the mercantile this morning!
Great open house last weekend! Now to get ready for Holiday open house in November!
