Kate’s Awesome Cookies

Years ago my niece shared some amazing cookies with our family. When asked; she willingly gave the recipe. They quickly became a family favorite and I decided I should probably make them again as it had been a long time since I had.

The beginning of this week saw us in the middle of a snowstorm and it seemed a perfect day to bake….so I did!  I usually don’t bake much anymore unless the kids are coming home or company is coming. I have found; when it is just my husband and me, we don’t need that much sweet stuff around.

I was feeling kind of “bakey” (I know it isn’t a word but it should be). I think that feeling was due to the cold weather and the snow. I pulled out the recipe from my niece and found I had all the ingredients on hand. That was a good thing as we were not going to be driving anywhere with the snow flying like it was.

I am going to share the recipe with all of you because it is just to good not too.

Kate’s Awesome Cookies

1 Cup butter flavored Crisco
3/4 Cup white sugar
3/4 Cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 Teaspoons vanilla
2 1/4 Cups flour
1 Teaspoon baking soda
1 Teaspoon salt
1 Bag white chocolate chips (2 cups)

Cream Crisco and sugars
Add the eggs, vanilla, soda, and salt.
Fold in white chocolate chips
Bake at 350º for 8-10 minutes.

Do Not Overbake!
Note: I usually take them out and let them sit just a bit
on the hot cookie sheet then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
These freeze beautifully (If you have any leftover to freeze!)

I had to kind of grin when I typed the line “Do Not Overbake”. I should probably heed that with more things in my life…only translate to Do Not Overthink…..Do Not Second Guess and so on and so on.

I have a great habit of second guessing myself on decisions made. My husband does not understand this….is this perhaps a woman thing or just a me thing? For some reason it can be hard to let past choices go. I am working on that and hopefully making progress!

I have a friend named Brenda H. who made a great observation. She asked a group of us women if we trusted in God or if we trusted God. What a difference one word makes in a sentence! Perhaps trusting Him would make a world of difference in the second guessing category?

May the weekend find you confident in your choices. May you realize that no matter what, God still loves you and there will always be people who will stand behind you…..and may we all learn to trust.

And the next time you find yourself second guessing yourself just say, “Do Not Overbake”! I am going to do the same.

Feed your faith and starve your doubts.

    Thanks for the recipe Faye. Just yesterday I told my husband I was going to have to start baking more cookies because when I make a cake we don’t finish it all. As you mention I can freeze the cookies. I am sure these will be a hit because he loves white chocolate.

    Wonder if I could just use butter?( I don’t use crisco…it is a fake food. )but sometimes things work out different when we try to sub
    and yes..I .don’t bake unless there is someone else to share with ..or .I end up eating the entire thing all by myself. Like the pan of brownies the other day. Did I tell you it was a double batch.?

      I have often wondered too if butter would work. This and decorator frosting for sheet cakes is all I use Crisco for anymore. I always wondered if the cookies would be as chewy with butter or tend to get crispy? If you try it let me know!
      LOL on the brownies! I made a double batch of these cookies and stuck most in the freezer. My husband has a sweet tooth that doesn’t quite and would have had them all gone in two days if I had not. I would also have kept nibbling at those brownies.

    Those look delicious Faye and I bet they made your kitchen smell delicious too. Cold weather and snowy days make it a good time for comfort foods like cookies, pudding and mac-n-cheese and curling up under a comforter for a nice nap.
