Little Pillow and a Cookie Recipe

Today I made this sweet little pillow for my Mom...aka..."GiGi"
It's my Grand-Daughter's hand print
so her Great Grand-Daughter
I think these little pillows are so sweet...
Sandra made one for her Daughter-in-law~ Holly
with Wyatt's hand-print.
She loved it!
I'm making another one for my daughter and of course one for myself!
I think GiGi will like her's too!
It's a sweet little keepsake don't you think?

After sharing my Fudge recipe last week
I ask Sandra to give me her favorite cookie recipe to share
Here it is...
Chocolate Chip Cookies
( I've had these on many occassions so I know they are GOOD!!)

2 sticks melted butter
1/2 c oil
1 c sugar
1 c brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
3 1/2 c plain flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp soda
12 oz chocolate chips
nuts- optional
(Personally I LOVE walnuts and/or pecans in my cookies)
Here's the thing on this recipe...
Don't use a mixer...stir in all the ingredients by hand with a spoon

then use an ice cream or melon scooper ( medium size )
to drop on the cookie sheet
Bake @ 375 for 8 - 10 minutes

Easy Easy!!
Plus I have it on good authority that SANTA loves these cookies!!
Just thought I'd throw that in

I'm linking over to Rebecca's Birthday Party!
