Monday Morning Project: Cookies and Cards

We are back to a regular schedule this week. Our Monday Morning Project this week was to make a Thank You Card and cookies for the workers at the Greenhouse for the time they took to give the kids a great field trip a couple of weeks ago. We meant to do this sooner, but we went out of town to take care of my dad and were gone a little longer than planned. I dug out the scrap booking supplies and the kids made a cute Thank You Card, and also a Get Well Soon Card for Mr Robert (co-owner to the Greenhouse) because he just had surgery. We haven't all cooked together for awhile, so the children enjoyed measuring and mixing the cookie dough. We made a double batch so they could enjoy the fruits of their labor in addition to being able to take a batch to the Greenhouse this afternoon after Anthony and Christian wake up from their naps.

My Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe (single batch)

1 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/4 cups flour
1 bag chocolate chips

Cream butter, sugar, brown sugar. Add in salt, baking soda, and vanilla. Stir in flour, eggs and chocolate chips last. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.
