My friend, Melissa is opening her yarn shop tomorrow, and I promised a Grand Opening Batch.
Then there is People Who Need Cookies, like Chris and Jeff.
Enough of those guys, here’s the recipe all ready!
Christmas Chocolate Chip Cookies
4 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 cups butter, softened
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cups brown sugar, firmly packed
3 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 teaspoon either almond or rum extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cups mixture of white, dark and semi-sweet chocolate ( I open all packages, dump in large ziplock, then measure out my two cups, saving the rest for next time)
1/2 cup finely flaked, dried coconut
Mix all things together in the usual fashion, chill, form balls and roll them in a bowl of granulated sugar.
Bake at 375 for 8 to 10 minutes.
