Two friends I absolutely ADORE asked me to be a part of a fanfreakingtastic project this week. Both Julie and Jeannett make me want to be better. A better wife, mom, and human in general. They put their creative, charitable hearts together and came up with this:
Read more about the Happy Day Project and here too. If you came from one of their blogs- welcome! Happy to have you here. My printable is up on their blogs today. I’m sharing something to print out and make cookies for a neighbor. They also paired today’s post with Shop for Sharlie- such a treat!!
I wanted to give a little somethin’ somethin’ here- a friend card. So I created this:
Download a sheet of 4 cookie printables.
Then drop off some cookies for a favorite friend. Or 4.
In case you need an extra good cookie recipe, here is our family favorite:
Originally found here. And they found the recipe from somewhere else.
- 1 cup butter (softened)
- 1 cup brown sugar
- ¾ cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 Tbsp. vanilla
- ¾ tsp. baking soda
- ¾ tsp. salt
- 3 cups flour
- 1 package Ghirarrdeli Milk Chocolate Chips
- ½ bag Ghirarrdeli Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
- have used other brands of chocolate chips & they work but these are the best. HAVE to use both milk chocolate and semi-sweet for the best results)
- Cream butter and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla. Then add dry ingredients. Mix in chocolate chips. Bake at 350 for 9-11 minutes.
I prefer under cooked rather than over done, so I only bake these for 9 mins.
Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies would be awesome too:
Thank you Jeannett and Julie for creating another way to think of others. It has never been more clear to me than now:
The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service to others. -Gandhi
