Chocolate chip cookies to the rescue!

Liz and Betty

One lovely benefit of the Great October Snowstorm is that our daughter and two of our granddaughters are camping out at our house while they wait for their electric power to be restored.

Of course that meant fresh cookies so I got out the mixer and started to make chocolate chip cookies.

My daughter was helping by measuring out the ingredients and was surprised when I told her I used 2 1/3 cups of flour instead of the 2 1/4 called for on the package recipe.

I have been doing this for years since I don't like the thin "fried out" cookies that I get with only the 2 1/4 cups of flour.

She also was surprised to see how much faster an ice-cream scoop gets the job done.

When only Rick and I are at home, I usually bake only half the recipe, scoop the rest out onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet and freeze them.  The next day I pop them into a plastic bag to have on hand for "cookie emergencies".
