When there is nothing to munch on, he starts to whine. So in order to head off the whining session I decided to bake some cookies today for him.
Look at my fancy photographing skills.
I should be a food stylist, no?
Now head on into the kitchen and make some cookies. Here's the receipt* if you would like to try them:
Brown Sugar Cookies
3/4 cup shortening
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 3/4 cup flour
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
Cream shortening. Add brown sugar and cream well. Add egg. Sift flour, cream of tartar, soda, and salt together. (I don't sift.) Add to the first mixture. Add vanilla. Drop with a teaspoon on a baking sheet. (I don't grease mine.) Press down slightly with two fingers. Bake at 375F for 10-12 minutes. Makes around 30 cookies.
I'm not eating them so they should last for a day or two. A good blogging buddy told me that when they have nothing to talk about they talk about food. You know who you are. Peace out.
* Back in the Dark Ages recipes were called receipts. Really. Just ask me.
