A unique cookie recipe – one that will surprise you! Cookies are not complete without a glass of milk. Drink milk often (3 times a day) but the cookies, as with all treats, enjoy them sparingly. Recipe makes 3 dozen cookies
To increase flavor and interest, add 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts; doing so will increase fat 1 gram, saturated fat 1 gram, and calories to 150 per cookie.
For variety, substitute 1 cup butter scotch chips for the chocolate chips and add 1 cup chopped dates. Substitution will increase calories to 160 per cookie.
Cookie dough may be frozen and baked later. For convenience, line baking sheet or tray with plastic wrap. Drop spoonfuls of cookie dough onto plastic wrap, as you would do if cookies were to be baked immediately. Cover with plastic wrap, freeze. When frozen, cookie dough may be placed in airtight freezer bag or container until ready to bake. To bake, place frozen cookie dough on un-greased cookie sheet, cover with plastic wrap and allow to partially thaw while oven is pre-heating (10-15 minutes). Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes, or until cooked through and lightly browned.
