I baked a batch of Amish cookies today - the best cookies in the world!
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 1/2 cups of plain flour
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1 packet of choc chips
1 tablespoon hot water
1 teaspoon vanilla
Cream the butter and sugar together. Add egg, water and vanilla. Beat until fluffy.
Add plain flour and mix well. Gently stir through the baking soda and choc chips.
Bake in moderate oven (180 degrees) until golden brown.
Bella visited a garage sale going on across the road this morning, with pocket money squished up in her little hands. She wandered back through the front door with the above soccer table. She was so proud of her purchase and spent the next few hours telling us what an awesome buy it was.
There some seat building happening in the back yard, using recycled timber. I'll share photos when it's all finished.
I've been knitting little Blythe cardigans too. The red one above only took me about, oh....5 hours with so many mistakes made along the way. I have them a bit more down pat now though and am onto my third. I plan on doing a stash of them to put away for Christmas - some for my niece's new Blythe doll + a heap for Bella's girls
I hope your Saturday was a good one too.
