Baking Marathon




One batch oatmeal raisin walnut …………………….45 minutes
One batch brown sugar ……...……………………......45 minutes
One batch chocolate chip……………………………......45 minutes
Double batch peanut butter………………………….....One hour

Look on college sons faces
when we deliver them tonight………………………....Priceless


Youngest lives in a dorm, and his best friend lives in an apartment with two other guys. Youngest visits there often. Oldest lives in an apartment with 2 other guys, so the cookie eating potential is high. Every now and then you just have to spoil them. Just in case you are wondering, husband might get a few of these as well. (If he’s a good boy.)

Now you know why I wanted the extra large canister set!
Take a close look at the peanut butter cookies. I discovered a time saver. The tenderizer side of my meat mallet makes a perfect cookie masher. Saves time from going over them twice with a fork, and makes an interesting design.

***Commercial endorsement*** If you have never tried them, might I recommend Dough Maker’s cookie sheets? (Check out doughmakers.com) They are lightweight, aluminum, naturally non-stick, and bake very evenly! (I just wish I could get stock in the company, or free product every time I give them a plug.) They are a little more expensive than some, but I am fortunate to live close enough to the company to take advantage of factory sales. The great thing is, I will never have to replace them. With that in mind, they are a bargain!

I love my doughmakers you and my mom gave me. They are wonderful! You should definitely have them give you a job for all the sales that get made thanks to you! Everywhere I look in my kitchen, I see your wisdom and suggestions. You make kitchen life fun!

(And no, that's not a shameless attempt at getting some cookies. But.....I won't argue if you want to make them in June.....)
