L Is For Lazy Days

Sick Day by Flickr user Shom Tore

Today is a lazy day, no sooner did I walk into work than the school was calling me to come pick up the little man who was losing his breakfast all over the playground. Looks like it is cartoons for him and laundry for me today. But that is okay, could use a lazy day home from work. I might even make some chocolate chip cookies (Unfortunately, not the million dollar kind, just regular tollhouse).

When you have to stay home with a sick child what do you spend your day doing when not dishing out the meds and answering to “Mom?!” ? Is it a lazy day? Do you spend your day watching cartoons too? Or do you bring your work home to do? Do you spend your day cleaning the house (which is really what I should be doing)?

Cheating at a Million…

…Million Dollar Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Nothing is as satisfying as fresh baked cookies from the oven and the infamous Million Dollar Chocolate Chip Cookies are probably some of the best. You are probably all familiar with the story…

A woman and her daughter are having lunch at and decide to have cookies for dessert. The woman is so impressed by the cookie that she asks for the recipe. After being told no, she offers to buy the recipe. The waitress tells the woman that the recipe will cost two-fifty. Thinking this is a bargain, the woman tells the waitress to add it to her bill. One month later, she discovers while looking at her credit card statement that the cookie recipe cost her $250. Not able to convince the department store to take back the recipe and credit her money back, the woman proceeds to email the recipe to all of her friends and so on.

This story has been around for decades; the only thing that changes is the name of the
department store. The recipe is pretty much the same, a delicious cookie containing oatmeal, nuts, and chocolate chips. Here is a simple way to recreate the recipe without all the fuss.

Ingredients

2 eggs

2 sticks salted butter (softened)

1.   Heat oven to 375 degrees F.

2.   Stir softened butter and egg in medium bowl.

3.   Stir in both packets of cookie mix.

4.   Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased
cookie sheet.

5.   Bake for about 10-12 minutes or until light golden brown.

6.   Cool 1 minute before removing from cookie sheet.

Makes approx. 4-5 dozen cookies.
