Saturday nights are different in our house since small one came along.
We used to have a party, dinner, restaurant etc to go to each week.
We had some VERY late nights and some VERY good times.
The good times continue but they have changed.
They are slower, home oriented and usually don’t involve paying a babysitter.
Saturday nights often mean a movie, a couple of friends and always a treat.
The treat is often cookies and small one and I usually make them in the afternoon together after I’ve repeatedly failed to convince her that a nap is a super awesome idea.
This is a recent variation and I thought I’d post it on Thursday so that you can grab the ingredients early and make your Saturday night extra special.
I’ve got some gorgeous walnuts, dark chocolate chips and the special ingredient…chocolate covered blueberries.
- 1 cup dark chocolate chips
- 1 cup chocolate covered blueberries
- 1 cup walnuts
- 2 cups butter
- 1 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp each baking soda and powder
- 3 1/2 to 4 cups flour
- Cream butter and sugars together. Add; eggs, vanilla, chocolates and nuts. Fold in flour and leavening agents. You want a moist but not sticky dough. Depending on the weather you will need more or less flour. I always try a test cookie first and adjust the flour as needed. Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes until still slightly soft on top.
- Makes 3 dozen.
