the sweetest indulgence {guest post by Mary}

I'm so honored that my lovely friend, Saff, put me in charge of her blog while she's away, although I must say that I'm missing her terribly...aren't you all? She is such a dear! Oh, I guess I'd better introduce myself, by the way. I'm Miss Mary {Sue Sue} from the blog Sue Sue's Stories, and I am very excited to be guest posting here at Saff's Sanctuary!
Anyways...onto the subject. Miss Saff gave me a few topics to write on and share with you all...one in particular that caught my attention the most...that is, something that when many people think of---they think of me. It is a small morsel, rich in flavor, creamy in texture and dark in color...also known as the chocolate chip, and the biggest sin in my life. I often try to avoid them, but they lure me in like no other earthly thing. I eat them in ice cream, in cookies, in brownies, in cake, by handfuls. Every time a bag of chocolate chips appear in the pantry of my home, they somehow mysteriously disappear the next day. Strange isn't it? Well not if Mary is around. Many people claim I'm even addicted to them. Me? Addicted? Anyways I am going to share with you my most favorite recipe involving chocolate chips, and also, a very popular treat around the world:: The chocolate chip cookie.
Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • 10 ounce(s) chocolate chips
  • 2 1/4 cup(s) unsifted flour
  • 1 teaspoon(s) baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup(s) (2 sticks) butter
  • 3/4 cup(s) sugar
  • 3/4 cup(s) packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoon(s) vanilla
Preheat oven to 375ºF. Stir flour with baking soda and salt; set aside. In large mixer bowl, cream butter with sugar, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Gradually blend dry mixture into creamed mixture. Stir chips. Drop 1 tablespoon of dough per cookie onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake at 375ºF for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown.
Enjoy!
