D and I made cookies today... we used the recipe from "Best Recipes" by America's Test Kitchen (my favorite cook book EVER!), but instead of mixing in the chips, D smooshed them on top... He loves cracking eggs, so he did all the egg cracking, though I did the seperating, and he also did all the pouring after I did the measuring... he also whisked. he loves whisking. We used 1/2 n 1/2 semisweet chocolate chips and butterscotch chips (cause I like butterscotch, but not chocolate). they turned out SOOOOOO yummy!

The "thick and chewey chocolate chip cookie" recipe (versus the thin and crispy version) calls for 1 whole egg and 1 yolk per batch (we made a double batch today), so I had 2 egg whites left over... usually the whites go to the puppies as a treat, but since these eggs are now from our own chickens, I'm loathe to waste them... so we made meringue cookies!
I made a 1/2 recipe, from "Baking Illustrated" (also by America's Test Kitchen), and they came out SOOOOO super yummy!
I love using everything up, and getting yummy variety to boot! we've been eating these with some of the less ripe strawberries, like teeny tiny personal pavlovas.
