Chocolate Chip Cookies
Happy Valentines Day Everyone! We are snowed in today. Had more than a foot of snow. And we are expecting more tonight. Spring seems to be too far out! Well to keep the kids busy we did many activities with them. One of them was preparing Valentine's day card for exchange at my son's school. I had gold coin chocolates and wanted to see if we can do something with it. I found this link, about making cute Valentine card and was thrilled coz it was pretty simple. Isn't it neat. So apt for the ongoing Olympic fever going around in his school too.
Anyways, then came the baking part. I prepare these chocolate chip cookies many times, it's very simple, fool proof recipe. It's already there on my blog here. But thought will re-post with some new clicks.
