The weather here in Oregon has been really off the past couple of months. It was stinkin’ hot for awhile and then summer kind of disappeared the end of August. I’m not real happy about it. I LOVE the nice weather. Well, let me rephrase that. I love wearing flip flops and shorts. My wardrobe consists of shorts, capris and then super cold weather stuff. Not a lot of in between. But rather than whine about the lack of summer I am going to embrace the Fall. I do love Fall. Well, I love Halloween. I love everything about Halloween – the decorations, the abundance of candy around the house, the trick or treaters. You name it. So we’re going full speed ahead and whooping it up for Halloween as long as we can.
So to start it off we made these super cute (if I do say so myself) and yummy mummy cookies. They are super easy to make and what child wouldn’t think these were cool?!
You will need:
* 3/4 cup sugar
* 1 egg
* 3 cup flour
* mini chocolate chips
* white chocolate chips
We had a tad bit of a flour mishap with my daughter helping me. But what the heck. I decided a long time ago it was more important to have my kids help me than it was to keep the kitchen clean while doing it.)
– Bake 8 – 10 minutes until lightly golden brown.
– In a small resealable zip lock freezer bag, place the white chocolate chips (maybe 1/3 of the bag). Seal bag.
– microwave on high for 45 – 60 seconds or until melted.
– Let stand until set.
And there you have it. Yummy Mummy Cookies! I know it’s not even October yet, but we’re excited!
