Tonight's card uses Papertrey Ink's Background Basics: Newsprint and Tiny Tags, Melissa Frances resin applique, and a Birds and Blossoms Creative Scrap from Crafty Secrets. Pretty Peony cabbage rose ribbon from memriemare.
A few have asked for Sierra's cookie recipe...feel free to add some Mtn. Dew if you'd like...for a little zing or somethin'.
Lilybean's Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup shortening
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
Oodles of chocolate chips...the more the merrier...I use Ghiradelli 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Chips.
**Cream shortening and sugars. Add in vanilla and eggs. Cream thoroughly. Add in flour, baking soda, and salt. Combine and at this point, I add in about 2 Tbs. milk...just until the dough gets a bit gooey and sticks to the sides of the bowl. Throw in those chocolate chips...eat a few...give some to your helper...and then add some raisins! Ohhhh....all of you non-raisin lovers....they are like candy all warm and plump from the oven....we love them here...but you can ignore them if you choose.
Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
Get yourself a big old glass of milk, maybe put on your stretchy pants so you can eat three, and get after it!
