      A "favorite" food any time of year is homemade Toll House cookies. I try not to make them too often for obvious reasons but, especially when provisions are low, they have a way of getting themselves made. This morning I decided the latest toll house cookie need had been gestating long enough and started rounding up the makings. But I had a problem that was threatening to abort the whole cookie-making process; I had no brown sugar.

      Now normally this isn't much of a problem, I just "make" brown out of white sugar and molasses. But, although I knew I had some, I just could not find my molasses. Then tonight, after a nap of a few hours, I reached into the mouth of a beautiful, highly decorated old German beer stein and pulled out the bottle of molasses I'd so cleverly hidden there. Yuppers, a nice go on my part.

      So now I've taken butter and eggs out to soften and warm and located a "chewey" choc chip cookie recipie through google so I can get baking in a while and have fresh baked cookies to go with some freshroasted coffee come midnight.

        Here's my favourite recipe for choc chip cookies:

        1 cup butter
        1/2 cup white sugar
        1 cup brown sugar
        1 tsp vanilla
        2 eggs beaten
        2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
        1 tsp baking soda
        1 tsp salt
        choc chips (I use 2 cups)

        Cream butter and sugars, add eggs & vanilla. Blend in dry ingredients. Stir in choc chips. Drop on greased sheet.

        375 degrees ~ about 10 minutes

              Not nearly as much as I'd like. LOL

              Thanks for the recipie; I used a variation on it for a chewey cookie:

              2 sticks unsalted butter
              2 1/4 cups bread flour
              1 teaspoon salt
              1 teaspoon baking soda
              1/4 cup sugar
              1 1/4 cups dark brown sugar packed
              1 large egg
              1 large egg yolk
              2 tablespoons milk
              1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
              2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
              ................+
              1 1/4 cups chopped walnutz
