snowed in

Friday was one of those days where everyone was either snowed in, or attempting to get home in the BAD BAD weather. The snow started around 9am and never stopped. Half way through the day our boss said, everyone go home! My boss rocks. Some of the many awesome things about working here are a) my boss is a total human and is always thinking about our well being, b) he gives us almost 2 full weeks off for christmas (WOOHOO!) c) he has a heated driveway and walkways here. I know a heated driveway?? It's seriously awesome, you never have to walk in the snow... except when it's snowing so hard and for so long (friday) that the driveway can't keep up!! You know it's bad when the driveway can't keep up.

Anyway, the drive home friday was an adventure, very thankfully my car (her name is iceskate) she has all wheel drive AND snow tires, both which I was so thankful for this weekend/ this morning. Yeah the roads STILL suck this morning. Since the gym closed friday due to snow I was left with no other option than to be a hermit friday night, and bake and crochet all night!!! WOOOHOOO (ok am I seriously an old woman... it's ok you can tell me :) )

One of the things I baked this weekend were some very thin crisp butter laden chocolate chip cookies.
(wait what??? butter??)
Yes, they were for John's neighbor, the big dude who I really don't like
(then why bake him cookies)
good question, because he has a snow blower and cleared off john's walkways and driveway all weekend long... for this, he gets cookies. Plus it's always good to bribe the guy with the snowblower, so hopefully he'll keep doing it all winter long... no shoveling for us! woohoo!

The cookies spread like mad so make sure to space these bad boys out. They can out totally flat and crisp/chewy, YUM. Eat with caution, these things are NOT good for you.


Crispy chewy chocolate chip cookies
1 3/4 cup white flour (seriously i used white flour NO WAY!)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1 stick (8 Tbs) butter (softened)
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 pound chocolate chips

WHISK flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Set aside.

CREAM butter and sugars together until very light, about 5 minutes. Add egg. Stir in the vanilla.

MIX in dry ingredients (my dough was a little too dry so I added a little milk in)

preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake about 15 minutes (more for really crispy)

CHOW! and be prepared to get fat :)

is this recipe missing the butter amount? i assume a stick...maybe more since they're "butter laden"?
