Hot Chocolate Cookies

I saw these cookies on another blog a while ago and thought about making them sometime.  Yesterday I whipped them up for our Family Home Evening treat.  The kids loved them, especially since they have hot chocolate mix in them.  We've been drinking a lot of hot chocolate lately.

I think it's funny that I found this recipe that has hot chocolate in them.  A year or so ago, I was away from home for a meeting or something.  While I was gone my hubby and kids made some brownies.  My hubby didn't know where the cocoa was, so he used hot chocolate mix instead.  The brownies turned out great and were really yummy!  Maybe he should have blogged about it.  

Hot Chocolate Cookies 
recipe found on Tasty Kitchen blogYour Home Based Mom, and Real Mom Kitchen

1 c. salted butter
1 c. white sugar
2/3 c. brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
3 1/4 c. flour
4 packages (1 oz. packets, NOT sugar-free) hot chocolate mix
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 c. milk chocolate chips
1 c. white chocolate chips
1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Cream butter and sugars until smooth.  Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined.

In a separate bowl, combinef lour, hot chocolate mix, salt and baking soda.  Add to wet ingredients in 3 to 4 parts, making sure all is incorporated.

Fold in chocolate chips.  Chill dough for 30 minutes to firm up dough.

Scoop dough onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper.  Bake for 9 - 11 minutes or until edges are golden brown.  Let cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan.

* I only used semi-sweet chocolate chips since that's all I had on hand.  And I didn't chill the dough and the cookies turned out just fine.

One Hour Rolls

These rolls are amazing!  I've been making these rolls since 2001 when I was a newlywed and my sister-in-law shared the recipe with me.  The rolls are light, fluffy, easy to make and they only take one hour!  And delicious too!   I've made these rolls more times than I can count, so I've perfected the art of making them.  Here are some step-by-step instructions with pictures for you. Here's what you'll need.  I buy pretty much all of the ingredients in this recipe at Sam's club, thus the huge containers.  You need warm water, yeast, oil, sugar, salt, egg and flour. In the mixer bowl, add warm water (not hot), oil, sugar and yeast.  Mix together. After ten or fifteen minutes the yeast mixture should be puffed up like this.  Time to add the salt and beaten egg. Then mix in the flour.  (I've used a mixture of half wheat and half white flour successfully.) Keep adding flour until the dough is manageable.  It will be a little sticky, b

Havreflarn (Swedish Oat Crisp Cookies)

We had some teenagers over for a Swedish themed dinner last night.  They were participating in a "missionary for a day" activity.  They were paired up into companionships, like the official missionaries for our church and were assigned to a family for dinner.  They ate with us and then taught us a lesson about Heavenly Father's plan for us.   My husband served a mission in Sweden.  He lived there for two years and loved it.  Swedish meatballs are a staple at our house.  (They're super easy to make and my pickiest eater's favorite!).  When we visit IKEA we usually stock up on the cream gravy packets and jars of Lingonberries.  We were out of lingonberry, but after a few phone calls, I found some at one of our local grocery stores. We ate meatballs, gravy, lingonberry, mashed potatoes (I ran out of time, other wise I would have steamed little red potatoes from our garden) and green beans (though my husband doesn't remember eating them in Sweden

The Best French Bread I've Ever Made

This is the best french bread I've ever made.  I got this recipe from my friend, Nikki, who gave us some of this bread as a thank you for my hubby helping them move a piano.  I remember it being delicious and we gobbled it up fast.  I was intimidated for some reason by the recipe and waited a few years before I made it. We needed some bread for to make some turkey, provolone, avocado sandwiches, so I made some of this bread and it was perfect!  We sliced one loaf like they do at Subway.  Then later I made normal shaped sandwiches with the rest of the bread.  Delicious... light and fluffy and yummy! Update 2/22/12: This is still my favorite bread after making it for a year! It turns out perfect every time and it's gone in a flash! printable recipe French Bread recipe from my friend, Nikki Yield: 2 loaves   Ingredients 2 c. warm water 1 pkg (or 1 heaping Tbsp.) yeast 1/4 c. granulated sugar 1 T. olive oil
