Happy 4th of July everyone! I hope everyone is having a relaxing and fun day spending quality time with family. We’ve also had our share of fun too, and it included JP and I making some yummy All American Chocolate Chip Cookies. What more American than that for 4th of July, right?? Anyways, For some strange reason, JP seems to LOVE his Sesame Street cookie cookbook (there’s no story, just recipes) and always asks me to read it to him. So this weekend I decided we should actually ‘make’ something from the book instead of ogling at the pictures. They turned out to be simple and delicious!

Part of what is fun for me is the photography I do in these blog posts. I am nowhere near the skill level of being a professional photographer, but I am constantly wanting to learn more about it. So while I was concentrating on photographing the above pic, my little helper was helping himself on the kitchen island behind my back. LOL

I caught these shots

The wet mixture – 2 sticks of Butter, 1/2 cup of Sugar, 1 cup of Brown Sugar, 2 Eggs & 1 tbspn Vanilla

Then add the powder mixture – 2 1/2 cups of flour, 1/4 tsp salt, 1 tsp baking soda

Mix those together and you get the creamed mixture:

Fluffy goodness

… JP and I agree: The cookie dough was as dee-lish as it looks!

Caught red handed again! I added an entire bag of chocolate chips to the plain cookie dough. The recipe also calls for 1 cup of chopped walnuts, but I don’t like walnuts so I skipped that part.

I spooned out small teaspoon-fulls on to a cookie sheet 2″ apart. Before I could get my camera down from my safe spot to take a pic, I turn around to find my little helper once again ‘helping‘  LOL!
