Caramel is made using granulated white sugar, whereas butterscotch uses light brown sugar. 😊
I kept this sheet taped inside one of my kitchen cabinets, until I memorized it lol
I have been using this recipe for years! It is a wonderful substitution and yields great results!
These are by far my husband’s favorite cookies! They are crispy, buttery bites of heaven!
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/4 cups (2 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups (about 12 ounces) semisweet and/or milk chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda; set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the butter with both sugars; beat on medium speed until light and fluffy. Reduce speed to low; add the salt, 1/4 cup water, vanilla, and eggs. Beat until well mixed, about 1 minute. Add flour mixture; mix until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Drop heaping tablespoon-size balls of dough about 2 inches apart on baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
Bake until cookies are golden brown 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from oven, and let cool on baking sheet 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack, and let cool completely. Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature up to 1 week.
Hello all!! I know I have been MIA for some time, but this unfortunate quarantine has bought about some, if not a lot, of free time. I am struggling with being a teacher and occupational therapist for my boys, but I am trying to stay positive!
I would love to hear about some of your kid boredom buster ideas! Please share! 😊
I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love freebies!
My quest for free items begins with a few of my favorite websites:
I have received some pretty awesome freebies from these sites over the years! There is no way I could ever remember all of them…..but some of my favorites were a Circulon skillet (Amazing! btw), chocolate covered fruit from Edible Arrangements, tools for my husband, an engraved Stella Artois glass, and a costume jewerly locket.
For each Brown Bear you will need three (3) small balls of dough and one (1) larger ball of dough. The large one is for the face. Two (2) small balls of dough are for the ears and the last
Madeleines are a traditional french cookie. They are also very quick and easy to make! They are delicious for breakfast with coffee or tea or for dessert! The best part is that everything is done within one saucepan! The only downside is that you do need a traditional Madeline pan, but they are easy to find online or in a baking/craft store. Once you see how easy and delicious these cookies are, they will soon become a family favorite!
