Not so Peachy? Try Chocolate

As I mentioned, my family was in town last weekend. I knew that Philip, my brother, wouldn't eat the upsidedown cake, so I was looking for something he would eat. I wanted to do a Whopper cookie, but I didn't have any Whoppers. I decided to make some chocolate cookies with white chocolate chips in them. I think these turned out great and could be changed around to fit your tastes. These cookies are from The Cookie Bible. Suggestions for add-ins include chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, mini-kisses, mint chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, and toffee. Take your pick and use this as a base batter. If you like brownies but want a cookies, this is a recipe to use! Design Your Own Chocolate Cookies
1 cup ( sticks) butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
2 teaspoons anilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
2 cups AP flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1-2 cups of your preferred add-in
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Beat butter, sugars, vanilla, and salt until creamy. Add eggs and beat well. Stir together flour, cocoa, and soda. Gradually add to butter mixture. Mix in your add in. Drop onto cookie sheet in rounded teaspoons or tablespoons for larger cookies. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until set. Cool slightly and remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack.

These cookies look delicious and my grown children love brownies so I will have to try this recipe. I'm also going to try the peachy keen cake recipe. I love being a retired school teacher getting recipes from such a cute young medical student!! That's quite amusing to me.....jancd

For me, when I'm not feeling good, I find carob to be one of the best things you can have.
The trick is with finding a really good brand to stick to. For me, I buy my carob from Holy Food Imports and it is absolutely delicious.
