Years ago when the children were wee I always had a cookie jar full of cookies...
when the jar would get close to being empty I'd make a new batch.
Those were the days when all the neighbourhood kids would come by to play.
Moms would drop by for coffee and we'd watch the children play and have some adult conversations.
We might have been discussing the price of food or shoes or thinking about ways to save money.
Stay at home moms needed to be frugal back in those days...
I think they still do.
I used Chipits chocolate chips back then and I still do...
on my last trip to Costco I picked up a big bag and thought I'd whip up a batch for old times sake.
Mr. HB loves to nibble on cookies.
The Kitchen Aid makes cookie mixing so easy.
All ingredients go into the bowl and blend until creamy
mix in the nuts and chips and then shape and bake.
Recipe on the back of the bag
I use way less sugar than the recipe calls for as I don't think they need to be as sweet.
Now to indulge in just ONE cookie with my tea!
If I had a jar full of cookies here on the counter in plain sight I'd be too tempted.
Every time I'd pass by I'd find my hand dipping into the jar.
A friend of mine says that she has the answer to that dilemma
pop them in the freezer and take them out when you need them...
I've been known to eat frozen cookies before so that trick would not fly with me.
Why they even have cookie dough ice cream...
What treats tempt you?
Can you keep them in the house and just say no?
