We played in the snow this morning instead. :) Digging, sliding, and just having fun.
Then we made cookies. They were good. :)
These are the cookies that we made (we cut the recipe in half)
2 cups softened butter
2 2/3 cup brown sugar
2 2/3 cup white sugar
4 large eggs
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp vanilla extract
24 ox chocolate chips
2 cup flour
4 cup flour
nuts are optional
Cream butter and sugars. Beat eggs, add salt, b.soda and vanilla.
combine the above ingredients and slowly add remaining ingredients. Mixture will be fairly stiff.
Drop by spoonfuls onto a greased and floured cookie sheet. NOTE I couldn't drop them. I just rolled small balls and put them on the cookie sheet - secondary note: parchment paper is LOVELY to use as are those silicone cookie sheets.
Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Do not overbake. NOTE: I found 14 minutes to be perfect, it gave me a mostly hard, but slightly chewy cookie.
Store in an airtight container with one slice of bread on top. This will keep the cookies fresh. Makes 8-9 dozen.
Munched on cookies rather than have lunch.
And then I got to work putting together a trains unit study. Not so much on trains, but using trains instead to teach basic kindergarten concepts. came from Currclick Trains mini lapbook.
we learned the sign for Train, and train gone. :)
