When my children were little we did a bunch of great Christmas-Treat-Baking inside our La Chaumière de Briarwood. Today, both my kids are phenomenal cooks and rival my abilities in the kitchen. They have perfectly appointed kitchens and aren't afraid one little bit to try something new.
~CHUNKY and FABULOUS~
Their old momma on the other hand has a tendency to stick to what she knows best! Tried and true recipes that have stood the test of time... I'm happy to leave what I call the complicated stuff to my son, Brandon, and my daughter, my AdrieGirl.
~ADD DRY INGREDIENTS~
When I was a young bride I learned to bake a little bit and would scour the Dallas Morning News for recipes to try out on my Mr. AGPMan (only he wasn't called that back then!). The recipe I'm sharing with you today came from that well known Texas paper back in 1979 or so...
~OLD RECIPE CARD~
Thirty plus years ago I copied it onto a little personalized recipe card one of my friends ordered from some mail order company... Today it's ratty and torn up but I love using it anyway!
~NO TASTING YET!~
Don't be tempted to taste the batter! You might get that 'sow-stuff' from the raw eggs! That would be terrible!
~PLACE ON COOKIE SHEET~
They smell soooo heavenly while baking!
And there you have it! A sweet treat for neighbors and friends! Now...don't faint when I tell you this but I'm not a chocolate lover (I told you NOT to faint!). I like it well enough and all, but I can take it or leave it if I must! But this kind of cookie...well, I could eat enough to make me senseless if I'm not careful!
Blessings for a lovely day...Happy Monday!
Love to you...
