Have fun Taxy! I have trouble with the phone app too.

I am resting after making another batch of triple chip cookies. The first batch ended up going to TB's work because he forgot to tell me there was a potluck for the driver's and he needed to take something. This was at midnight the day I made them (for gifts) and he leaves for work at 7 am! Now half of this batch went to my neighbours but I planned it that way

I also went shopping for things I can eat on a gallstone diet - veggies, some fruit, salad, lite foods with no fats.

I am sure we will be snowed in tomorrow so I think it will be a great day to bake cookies and make fudge.
Sorry you're snowed in, Katie. New Orleans has weird weather. It went from very chilly last week to in the high 70s this week. It's almost hot enough to turn on the AC, but it's lots better than being stuck in your home, especially if there's that one thing you need.

Chin up, friend. This too shall pass. Today being the longest day of the year means it will only get better. 8" Yikes!

I put raisins in them for her and then make a simple glaze of 10X sugar and milk and drizzle it over the cookies.

I have a nice tip for oatmeal cookies, that would probably work for other cookies too. A recipe makes so many, so when I make them, I put some of the dough in plastic ice cube trays and freeze them. After they are frozen, I pop them out and put them in plastic bags in quantities of 12. When we want fresh cookies, I just put them on a baking sheet and bake according to the recipe. I give bags of these to my DIL so when she and my grandson want cookies, she feels like she baked them. LOL Usually she buys refrigerated cookie dough, and these from the home made dough are so much better.

Oops, CarolPa. that is what I meant. Must have been a Freudian slip wishing for the longer days of summer.

Or you could have meant the longest night ;^)

Carol, do those need to thaw before you bake them?

It's 3:00 and the robot vacuum has started. This means I have to move things out of it's way and contend with a 60 lb "lap dog" on my knee who is scared of the thing. This goes on every day, but it is sure helping with the carpets.

No, they go right on the baking sheet frozen.
