Schoolhouse Recipes: Chocolate Chip Cookies for Santa

Happy Holidays to you, wherever you are.

I don't know what you've been up to today, Christmas Eve, but I did a whole lotta napping and a whole lotta wine drinking...not to mention a whole bunch of cookie making.

Where I'm from (Texas, USA), legend has it that if you leave a small plate of cookies and a glass of milk, Santa Claus will show his appreciation by leaving what you asked for (or what you didn't) under the tree. In the states it's also said that chocolate chip cookies are his favorite, so that's what I've told my kids...and that's what we made this evening.

Vegetarian chocolate chip cookies, and a splash of rice milk.

Grab 2 1/4 cups of flour

a 3/4 cup of brown sugar

and a 1/2 cup of white sugar

2 eggs (this is how we store our eggs...a far cry from the way we used to while living in Texas)
So first you'll need to combine the flour, a teaspoon and a half of salt, and a teaspoon of baking powder in one bowl...
in another bowl combine 1/2 a cup of olive oil, the sugar, and 2 eggs one at a time

slowly add in the flour mixture

combine with a spoon and throw in your chocolate chips
as many as you'd like...

take a spoonful of the cookie dough and place cookies on the sheet

bake at 160 degrees/350 degrees for 10-12 minutes
We only left a sip of rice milk and two cookies...Santa will get more than enough making his rounds tonight.

Merry Christmas!
