After Kindergarten there is some time where it is just Piper and I. On Friday we decided to use that time to bake. We got a little creative and this is what we came up with.This is how we did it.
We made Chocolate Chip cook dough. This is our favorite recipe.
4 sticks butter
1- 1/2 cups sugar
2 cups packed brown sugar
Cream those together.
Add 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
Mix that all together. Add the dry ingredients.
5 cups flour
1- 1/2 teaspoons salt
1- 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
Combine all of that and then fold in 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips along with 1 -2 cups mini chocolate chips….just because they are so cute.
Eat some dough, but not too much.
We baked ours in silicone heart shaped muffin tins like this….Bake for 12-15 minutes. After they are baked the heart shaped cookie seems to always drop in the middle forming the perfect little cup. We decided there was no better way to fill it than with Nutella. We use any excuse to use Nutella, really. So add approximately one teaspoon Nutella to fill the cookie.
If possible serve warm with a glass of milk and enjoy with your loved ones. Or perhaps, let cool and wrap up with a cute bow and drop off to a friend.
Oh, and because I have read so many blog posts lately about how Mom’s should get in the picture, I will add this. Piper and I baking. And yes, it is the best picture I took. I guess I need to work on the art of self portraits.
