dozens

Saturday, January 30, 2010

Good morning last Saturday in January. Nice to see you.
I spotted these cookies over here and they have been calling my name ever since. Again, in an attempt to satisfy all cookie lovers in my family, I doubled the recipe and divided it in half. Half the dough got regular semi-sweet chips and a roll in raw sugar. The other half got mint chocolate chips and a roll in confectioners sugar. I feel like I say this a lot, however, these were AMAZING! And the dough? Well, let me just say that this dough is some of the best dough I have ever tasted. Which is huge because if given the choice I always choose vanilla over chocolate. The melted butter, along with the other ingredients, results in warm, melt in your mouth, absolutely can't stop eating, cookie dough.
I pulled out the sewing machine on Thursday and it felt really great. My sister asked if I would make her bible study girls tissue cozies. (Thanks, Julie! :) ) I make a small change to the tutorial...I like to overlap the top piece.... so I cut two 6x4 pieces and two 6x4 1/2 pieces. I sort of drug my heals at this request but after I got started, loved it. It was the perfect little project to bring back my sewing mojo. Although, I will not let myself sew another thing until I finish this sweater.

Have a wonderful weekend.

  2. Yum!

    I'm happy to have my sewing mojo back too (and a happy new stack of fabric in the mail yesterday). I love your tissue cozies - Annika claimed the one you gave us and loves it.

    Enjoy your sweater knitting.

    Long time lurker, leaving a comment finally. Those cookies look so good! I, too, have been getting my sewing mojo back this week. I sewed one of your package pillows this week to dress up a gift card for a birthday party my daughter is attending today. I want to thank you for posting this pattern - it really makes a gift card very special. MJ

  12. I wonder if January is the month for chocolate or something. I, too, prefer vanilla, but made some chocolate cookies a couple of days ago that were absolutely to die for. They had peanuts in them, and sea salt on top, and with what was left of the batter, which I could not stop eating, I made what were hailed by my non-chocolate loving children as the best cookies they'd ever tasted. So it must be something in the air.

  17. Wow, look at you go! Could this perhaps just be an avoidance technique so that you DON'T have to finish that sweater? ;)

    Enjoy your pirate-y weekend.

  18. those cookies look great...I'm gonna have to try that recipe. I made some of those at Christmas time but the recipe called for cinnamon and nobody really liked them. These sound wonderful. Your tissue cozies are fabulous...I think I'd like to be in your sister's Bible study group too! Where did January go?

  20. So funny, I finally made the oatmeal, raisin, chocolate chip cookies today (double recipe) and they went so fast that i ran to grab the camera before they were gone - all but 12 were eaten throughout the day. and now i come here and these look amazing - i will try these too - i wonder if i can get away with using whole wheat flour here too - so far it hasn't been a problem in any recipe. Love the fun colors you chose for the tissue cozies - the girls will love them!

  21. Hi1 Please, please don't take this as a criticism as I adore your blog and look forward to every new post. In this post you write "cozy's" - this should really be "cozies". We really only use apostrophes for ownership or abbreviations. If you want a plural, don't use an apostrophe. Sorry - it's the English teacher in me. And I got the sewing machine out today too, to make pencil cases. Thanks for the fab blog.

  23. I got behind the sewing machine yesterday for hours. Now that my studio is somewhat set up it felt great. Even finishing up a few 'uninspiring' projects' really made me feel creative. Those cookies are definitely going in the cookie queue!
