Simple Choco-Chip Cookies on a Stick

14 Jun

This Sunday is Father’s Day and what better way to celebrate than to bake up some good ol’ fashioned chocolate chip cookies for the one I love?  These are not the most healthy version… mainly because I had all these ingredients in my pantry and just wanted to get rid of it all!  It’s a simple dessert that will pair nicely with the more involved dinner I’ve got planned.

We’re celebrating Father’s Day tonight because the rest of the week is busy, busy, busy and we’ll be spending the weekend with our families.  I like to cook up fun meals for special occasions so I thought today is as good a day as ever to celebrate Father’s Day just the three of us as a family.  I found this recipe here.

I decided to put some of the cookies on sticks and into the mug I bought for Mike… just to make it cuter and more interesting 🙂

Yields about 20 cookies

Ingredients:

1/2 cup softened butter

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. hot water

1/4 tsp. salt

1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

2/3 cup chopped walnuts

Directions:

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2.  Cream together the butter, white sugar and brown sugar until smooth.  Beat in the egg then stir in the vanilla.  Dissolve baking soda in hot water and add to the batter along with the salt.  Stir in flour, chocolate chips and walnuts.

3.  Form dough balls using your hands and drop onto baking sheet.  Bake for about 10 minutes.  Cookies will be crunchy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside… mmmm.

If you know Mike & me, you know that we very seldomly call each other by our first name... it's always just "Bear"... hence the mug.

Keira (with my help) made this frame in art class a couple weeks ago!

And in the words of Keira “ta-da!”  A simple Father’s Day dessert is done!  Just wait until you see what I’ve got cookin’ for dinner… Check back lata!
