This morning I made cookies. This morning I ate cookies. This morning Tessie and Company insisted that I share the cookies.
They had to hold a gun to my head to get their share.
I don't make these very often, because I start eating them as soon as they are cool enough to break apart.
For a change of pace, I am going to give you the recipe and stand back. Never get in the way of people that like chocolate or crunchy cookies.
These are the easiest, fastest and the most yummy for the time spent making them. They take less than ten minutes to put together.
They are called.....
Saltine Cookie Bars
Line a large cookie sheet with foil and butter it well.
Lay a single layer of saltine crackers on the foil, covering the bottom.
In a sauce pan, bring to a boil, 1 c. butter and 1c. sugar and boil for 2 minutes.Pour over the crackers and spread evenly. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 4 minutes.
Remove from oven and sprinkle a 12 oz. package of chocolate chips over the top. When chocolate is softened enough, spread it around evenly.
Refrigerate until hardened and break into cookie sized pieces.....My idea of a cookie sized piece is about 1/4 of the slab!
Feel free to experiment with toppings. just be sure to use at least one package of chocolate chips.
This morning I made it in a little larger pan than I usually do. The same amount of sugar and butter was fine. I added a few white chips to one end of the chocolate chips and some peanut butter chips to the other. Sometimes I add some nuts on top, after spreading the chocolate, if the mood strikes.
Anyway, I am now going back to the kitchen to see if the Terrible Two and their friends left me anything on the plate...
See you tomorrow.
