Some of the most precious gems in life aren’t objects but memories instead. The Keep Me bra ($42) calls for a comfortable jaunt down memory lane.
Memories of grandma baking are my favorite childhood moments. Propped on the counter as she whipped up delicious cookies, allowing me to lick the spoon occasionally—these are the memories I cherish the most.
Chocolate chip cookies being a special portal to those afternoons with grandma.
Here is a far less fussy version of Grandma’s Cookies:
1 cup margarine, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons hot water
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
2. Cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then
stir in the vanilla. Dissolve baking soda in hot water. Add to batter along with salt. Stir in flour and chocolate
chips. Drop by large spoonfuls onto ungreased pans (makes 24).
Bake for about 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are nicely browned.
Sometimes nothing tastes sweeter than a memory.
