Cookie Time!. What are your favorite Chirstmas cookies? These are mine.
1/2 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 12 ouce package red and green baking chips
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped pecans
cream butter and sugar together. when smooth, add the eggs and vanilla continue beating until fluffy.
add the salt, soda. then add the flour a little at a time.
when the batter is smooth and all the flour well incorpoated, stir in the chips, raisins and pecans.
Take a teaspoon full and roll it into a ball. this will be a sticky batter (A little flour in the palm of your hands keeps the batter from sticking). Set on a cookie sheet a few inches apart.
Bake at 375 degres for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Set on a rack to cool. Depending on the size of the cookie the yeild is 3 to 5 dozen.
Enjoy, oops looks like a big 2 legged mouse got into one.
