As soon as I had made that most important decision, my hubby invited me to go get a "Coke" with him. At our house going to go get a "Coke" means lets go to the local convenience store and buy a drink, any kind of drink will do. "Coke" doesn't mean "Coke", it means anything from water to a soda or a Slurpee. I got ready for the day and out the door we went to get our "Cokes". I always enjoy these little mini dates with my hubby. He drives us in his truck while I relax and look out the window. We have alone time to talk and catch up. We had a couple of stops to make, one was a drugstore, Wal-Greens. As I walked through the door, that is when I first saw them. There they were sitting so peacefully, looking so beautiful in their silver and blue packaging. They were made to become the main attraction, that special ingredient in my cookies. It was destiny. I picked up a bag and purchased them, it was like an out of body experience. Oh, the goodness! Who thinks of this stuff? Please, let me know, I'd like to kiss their feet and clean their toilets for a week (well, maybe that's a stretch).
I decided to use these instead of chocolate chips. They are the same size and texture of M&M's. I used the recipe below, they turned out yummy, give them a try, you won't be sorry.
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup White Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla
2 1/2 Cups Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 teaspoon Salt
One bag of York Pieces
Preheat the oven to 350. Cream the butter and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla. In a large bowl mix the dry ingredients and slowly pour into butter mixture. Add about 3/4 of the bag of York pieces. Mix well. Use a cookie scoop if you have one, or just use a teaspoon to drop them onto a cookie sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes. These are so delicious.....trust me!
You must give them a try!
It's always nice to have some helpers to clean up!
