My kitchen smells like freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. And its 10 degrees outside.  And the laundry is hanging on the line. And all is right with the world. Except for the big pile of receipts waiting to be filed for income tax. But I'm pretending its not there right now. And focusing on the cookies instead. This is a great cookie recipe, just one bowl and it makes 24 good size cookies.

2/3 c margarine or butter
1/2 c brown sugar (packed)
1/2 c granulated sugar
1 egg
1 t vanilla
1 1/2 c flour
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1 pkg chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream butter and sugars. Beat in egg and vanilla. Add flour, baking soda and salt to same bowl and mix these dry ingredients together lightly before stirring into the creamed mixture. Add chocolate chips. Drop rounded spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 10 to 12 minutes. Yum.


  1. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I have been craving CCC for weeks... mmmmm, yours look delish!

  2. And they were all eaten up at supper but two :) Which I'm sure will be gone by bedtime. Because we're gluttons.

  3. I expected to see sea glass and instead there were cookies. And such lovely cookies! I'm glad you enjoyed them.

    This year I got all my tax materials ready early with plans to file them early. Of course here I am with my big pile still. Lol!

  4. Well life can't be all sea glass. You have to have a cookie now and then :) Especially at tax time...

  5. Yummy!! I haven't been baking, and this is just what I needed to see to get me motivated!! These look delish! Thank you for visiting my blog and becoming a follower. I have a Cape Breton Blog, too, which when the weather gets better, I hope to post more on. It's at: I have a closed Etsy store and have been reluctant to reopen it while I am in Cape Breton because postage is so high. ~karen
