Mother's Day Cookies

I came home from work Sunday to Mara and Micah in the kitchen with a ton of ingredients all over the place! They were making my favorite cookies...chocolate chip....by themselves. Where was Steve? Taking a nap. He told them to follow the recipe. Well....Mara did the best she could, bless her heart. She took out what she thought was flour, but wasn't. It was powdered sugar! Thank goodness she didn't put in the whole 2 1/2 cups, but only 1 cup. She couldn't find a teaspoon for the vanilla, baking soda, etc, so she just used a tablespoon. That left me, who is severely baking impaired to fix because Steve refused to get up and help. I just starting throwing various stuff in to try and compensate. They ended up turning out ok...a little heavy on the baking soda, but all the chocolate chips I threw in tend to cover up that taste quite a bit!

Happpy Mother's Day!!!
