I'm not sure where it will land.
I never am when I buy something.
On Friday night, Bruce's mom came over, and we had our own little craft night.
I wanted to make this headband made out of old t-shirts.
I also made this one.
(Mostly to pick up some New Years Cookies for my
My knitting friends Emily and Carisa had an awesome booth.
Those hats are so cute, it almost makes me wish for winter.
Because I didn't get enough of the Barn/Mill last week, I decided to go again with my friend Megan H.
I didn't remember seeing these yellow chairs and table before. The gorgeousness of it all is going to make somebody very happy.
The chairs...such soft buttery goodness.
I haven't been so in love with such buttery lovliness since the last time I made Bruce's favorite Cookie Bars.
I grew up making them and have no idea what church cookbook they are originally from. I'm sure it's a great church because something as buttery as this doesn't come from people who don't dole out grace in extra large portions.
Here's the recipe.
Serve it with a side of grace.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars
2 sticks cold butter (I use salted.)
1 cup. brown sugar.
2 cups flour
1 tsp vanilla.
a shake or two of salt
5-6 ounces chocolate chips.
Preheat Oven 350 degrees.
Beat cold butter (you might have to soften for 20 seconds in microwave, but you really want it somewhat cold or the bars will be too greasy) and brown sugar together. Add flour, vanilla and salt. The dough might seem like it's not going to come together, just keep your mixer going and it will. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Press dough into 9x13 pan and bake 15-20 minutes.
Cut while warm.
A couple of extra notes:
1. These are really really good served warm with a scoop of ice cream and have been my "go to" dessert for last minute get togethers.
2. Pregnant women of the world rejoice! There are not any eggs in this recipe, so if you have a hankering for cookie dough, this is the recipe for you.
I'm just curious...
What's your "go to" dessert for those last minute get togethers?
