It has been a busy spring, lots of birthday parties, Easter was wonderful, the kids are busy with church and school activities, and I am still trying to train my crazy puppy Cordelia. Last week I was making a huge triple batch of our families favorite cookies for my son and hubby to take to their monthly father/son church group called Knight's night. Every time I make these cookies I enjoy how easy they are to make as well as how yummy and big they are. My mom made these when I was younger, and I have been making them since the kids were tiny. The recipe was in an old children's cookbook we had growing up, probably Betty Crocker but I can't remember for sure. Thought I would share the recipe, since it is so fun and easy, perfect for beginner bakers.
Big Fat Cookies
Preheat oven to 375 F.
1 box yellow moist cake mix (the kind with pudding in the mix)
1/2 cup water
bag of chocolate chips
Mix the cake mix with 2 eggs, and the water. Drop by large heaping tablespoons ( I use a 1/4 c. measuring cup) onto a greased cookie sheet ( I prefer to use parchment paper rather than grease) about 6 to a sheet as they get pretty big. Sprinkle a good amount of chocolate chips on the top of each cookie. Bake 8-10 minutes or until no impression remains after light touch and light golden brown on edges. Makes 16-20 cookies depending on size.
These are always a hit, hope you give them a try!
The Musgrove garden is well underway- Gary and Joseph are working on a fence for my garden to keep a certain puppy out, last week I got some peppers planted as well as some lavender and Basil, can't wait to get the rest planted! I will keep you posted. Enjoy the spring!
