Have a twinkly weekend



This weekend  I plan to make some chipless chocolate chip cookies and spend some time with my friends and family.  I’m hoping to take lots of pictures and videos of the kids, I feel like I haven’t been taking enough.

What are you up to?


Target Brand Market Pantry Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe


This may seem crazy but the Target Brand Market Pantry chocolate chips have the best chocolate chip recipe.  I like to make them without chocolate chips for myself and my son and we both love them.

I’ve eaten chocolate chip cookies this way since I was a kid, my grandma used to make me a special batch.  Looks like I’ll do the same for the bear.

Here’s the recipe:

Target Brand Market Pantry
Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies

Hands on time: 45 minutes | Total Time 45 minutes

What you’ll need

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 large eggs
2 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 pkg (12 oz) semi-sweet chocolate chips

  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Beat butter, both sugars and vanilla on medium speed until creamy. Beat in eggs until light and fluffy.
  3. Blend in flour, soda and salt on low speed until mixed. Stir in chocolate morsels. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.
  4. Bake 8-11 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool on baking sheet 2 minutes. Remove to wire racks.

Hip Girls Guide to the Kitchen suggests rolling the dough into a log, wrapping it in plastic wrap and refrigerating it.  When it cools, unroll the log, slice it and put it on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.  Sounds a lot faster than using a spoon!
