Plisse has been giving me quite a few fits lately. I've moved onto the pleated section of the body, but every time my mind would wander or one of my kids would try to talk to me, I would get off pattern. I actually had about 5 inches of the body completed, and decided to rip it back and start over. I searched for every stinkin' marker I had and put one in between each pleat. SO much easier. Although a little annoying, I wish I would have done that the first time around.
On the weeks I don't try a new cookie recipe, I make the old standby. Chocolate Chips. This week I made them twice. They are made so often that the recipe is etched in my brain. I can fly in the door 30 minutes before the bus gets my kids home and have these ready. It is just the nestle toll house recipe except that I use bread flour and add 1/2 cup and add an extra tsp of vanilla.2 3/4 cups of bread flour :: 1 tsp baking soda :: 1 tsp salt :: 1 cup butter, softened :: 3/4 cup sugar :: 3/4 cup packed brown sugar :: 2 tsp vanilla extract :: 2 large eggs :: chips and nuts....optional :: bake 350˚ for 11-13 min.
