Your response to my Wordless Wednesday: Snow Picnic post was great. It was a good time! Since then, I've had several requests for the cookie recipe (not mine) and so here you go.
It comes from my dear friend, Tavia, who's girls are in the photos with my Noah. She's about the coolest mama out there--and a good friend too; she never fails to show up with a batch of still warm cookies.
We're still enjoying snow around our place, and if you stopped by for hot cocoa, it would be topped with homemade marshmallows. Have you tried making them yet?
Tavia's Chocolate Chip Cookies with Skor Bits
1 cup soy margarine (may substitute regular or butter)
2/3 cup white sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1-1/2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 pkg chocolate chips (Tavia: sometimes I use semi-sweet, sometimes milk chocolate, or even white)
2/3 pkg Skor bits (Tavia: sometimes I crush up skor bars instead but they are more crunchy then)
2 cups oatmeal
Cream the margarine and sugars. Add eggs and beat well. Add vanilla. Sift flour, salt and soda and add to creamed mixture. Mix in oatmeal and add chocolate chips and Skor bits.
This is a drop cookie and bakes for about 9-12 minutes at 350F
