Count Down....

In 10 days my kids head back to school. I'm sure many of you are gearing back up for the school year too. Well, I am on the count down! I can't wait to make cookies for my girls again! EVERY MONDAY!!

It's been 3 years ago that I started Cookie Monday. We were in a new place (Carson City). My girls were starting in a new school and were not very excited about it. I wanted to do something for them. And that's when Cookie Monday came about. They got to where they would walk in the door every Monday, take a big breath/smell and try to guess the kind of cookie that was baking.

Now we are back in our home (Utah).... And we are keeping it going!! Welcome back Cookie Monday!

Last year we started a Back to School Cookie Celebration. After the first day of school we invited friends over for cookies and milk.  WE ARE DOING IT AGAIN!!  Everyone is invited!

August 23rd
Right after school...
2nd Annual Back to School COOKIE PARTY!
Come have Cookies and Milk
At the Rowley's House!

If you need directions, please leave me a comment with your e-mail and I will get you directions!

Here is one of the cookies I will be making for that day:

1 2/3 cup shortening
1 1/4 cup sugar
1 1/4 cup brown sugar
3 eggs
2 1/2 tsp. vanilla
4 cups flour
1 1/4 tsp. soda
1 1/4 tsp. salt
3 cups chocolate chips
optional: nuts

Cream together shortening and sugars.  Add egg and vanilla.  Mix in dry ingredients, then the chocolate chips.  Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes.

*This recipe came from my mom.  All three chocolate chip recipes that I have posted have the same ingredients, just different amounts.  It does make a difference in the taste of the cookie too.  When I made these I used my "BIG" cookie scoop.  The outsides had a nice warm crunch and the inside was soft and melty.  These didn't last long at our house!
