So today is supposed to be the club fair at my school, but due to the ominous look outside, I’m thinking that it might be postponed until next week. Well, Marissa and I had planned on attracting loads of people to our knittig table with the lure of cookies, so we made some delicious cookies yesterday. Marissa loves mint, as do I, so instead of making just plain chocolate chip cookies, and the Andes cookies recipe (which I was not very enjoyable last time I made it) we made a mix. We just used the basic Tollhouse cookie recipe but used one cup chocolate chips and one cup Andes chip. The mint in the Andes chips gave essense of mint to the entire batter and I must say are so good!!! Sadly, I don’t think we’ll be able to lure any new knitters with them today, but I’m sure we can find plenty of others to enjoy them.
