I usually finish work before DH does so I pick up small one from daycare and we toodle home together.
We chat about the day and when we get home we have a snack and continue to talk.
I often make us a pot of tea and usually we make a treat.
Small one often has deep thoughts.
She’s not a huge sweets fan but the other day she asked for chocolate chip cookies.
I wanted to try something new so these yummies were created.
I’m trying tone in the moment as much as possible, especially after a day at work.
I worry that if I don’t make a conscious effort that these times will be gone before I know it.
Make some cookies with your sweeties and have a chinwag while you do.
Cream together; 1 cup butter, 2/3 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup white sugar. Add in two eggs and a dash of vanilla.
Add 1 cup each; dark chocolate chips and coconut.
Fold in 2 1/2 cups four, 1 tsp baking soda, 1 tsp baking powder and 2 T. crystalized ginger.
Form into 24 balls and create a crisscross patter with a fork.
Place on a silpat (or parchment) lined cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
You want them to be soft still when you take them out.
Owl cups are optional but always welcome.
