Our annual book club Christmas party was on Monday night. We exchange small, but wonderful gifts. We bring a gift for each person, so we go home with a lot of loot.
This year, Chris brought a recipe for “Emergency Chocolate Relief Act” plus the actual raw cookies in a plastic bag to put in our freezers. The raw cookies were ready to pop in the oven whenever we were feeling faint and in need of chocolate. She even gave us a small cookie tray, which will fit into a toaster oven. It was all wrapped in a festive tea towel. Her mother, Judy, also a member of book club, gave us a small spatula to complete the ensemble. You can see it all above with the cookies hot from the oven.
Take off all jewelry. Wash hands. Combine one roll of Nestle refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough with a roll of another brand (such as Pillsbury) in the same amount. Add substantial amounts of pecans and chocolate chips or pieces of candy bars. Squish all together into balls. Slightly flatten and put in freezer bags. Freeze. When you need a cookie or two or three, break out of the bag. Put on baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes. Cool slightly. Eat! You’ll feel instant relief!
