Comfort Cookies

A couple of hours ago Jon announced that he was in need of some comfort food and suggested that we make chocolate chip cookies with the M&Ms my Uncle Bob and Aunt Sandy sent us a short while ago (all the way from Alaska!). The weather is starting to get cool so it was the perfect time for some cookie making. As you'll see, the recipe makes quite a lot of cookies, so we'll be taking them along to Rabat for the COS conference this week to share. Speaking of which, since we'll be in Rabat we won't be posting any new blog posts for about a week. Enjoy the photos (and the recipe at the end of the post)!

Chocolate Chip (or M&M) Cookie Recipe

2 1/4 cups flour
1 t salt
3/4 cup sugar
1 t vanilla extract
2 cups chocolate chips or M&Ms (we used 1 cup and it was plenty!)
1 t baking soda (we used baking powder, because Lisa Payne said it was okay)
1 c butter, softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 cup chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 375 F. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a sm bowl. Beat butter, white sugar, brown sugar and vanilla in a lg mixing bowl. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition; gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in chips and nuts. Drop by rounded teaspoon onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 9-11 min or until golden brown. Let stand for 2 min; remove to cool completely.
