Baking

It was just last week that I used the Tupperware Silicon Wonder mat. What an incredible baking tool. You put the mat right on top of your cookie sheet. Using this mat means no more calories from greasing a sheet and very even heat distribution. Ok...enough on the "ad", let me share some cookie recipes with you:

Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies

2/3 cup Crisco
1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
1 Tablespoon water
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
1 1/2 cup flour
1/3 cup Hershey's cocoa or Dutch cocoa
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup white chocolate chips

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Beat Crisco, brown sugar, water, and vanilla in large bowl on medium speed until well blended. Add eggs; beat well. Stir together (in a separate bowl) flour, cocoa, salt, and baking soda. Gradually add to sugar mixture, beating on low speed just until blended. Stir in chocolate chips, and white chocolate chips. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 7-9 minutes or until set. Cookies will appear soft, do not over bake.

Spice Cookies

1 1/2 cup butter
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup molasses
4 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon salt
additional sugar

Cream butter and sugar in a mixing bowl. Add eggs and molasses, mixing well. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, soda, salt and spices; sift together. Add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture and mix well. Refrigerate for at least one hour or overnight. Shape into 1/2 inch balls, roll in additional sugar. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 6 minutes, or until edges begin to brown.

Butterscotch Potato Chip Cookies

2 sticks butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 cups self-rising flour
1 teaspoon soda
6 ounces butterscotch pieces
2 cups potato chips, crushed (measure after crushing)

Mix butter and sugars. Add eggs and mix. Add flour and soda. Mix again. Finally, add in the butterscotch pieces and potato chips and lightly mix.

Bake at 300 degrees for 12 minutes.
