COOKIES! The Dark and Light of It!

This is the same recipe, played two ways!

 The Dark of It (big cookies for big kids):

 Red Tent Cookies

(because women and chocolate go together!)

 1 cup (2 stix) butta, softened

3/4 cup granulated sugar

3/4 cup packed brown sugar

2 large eggs

1 tsp vanilla

1 3/4 cups flour

3/4 cup cocoa

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 (12 oz) pkg dark chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375°.  Cream together butter and sugars.  Add eggs and vanilla, mix well.  Add dry ingredients and stir until well combined.  Fold in chips.  Drop by rounded tablespoonful onto ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake for 10 – 12 minutes.  Makes 3 dozen.

 For extra sassy RTC cookies:  add ½ tsp powdered ginger, ½ tsp ground cloves and ½ tsp cinnamon, into dry ingredients and ½ cup chopped candied ginger in with the chips. .  .SPICY!

 

The Light of It! (little cookies for little kids:

Be Mine Cookies

 1 cup (2 stix) butta, softened

3/4 cup granulated sugar

3/4 cup packed brown sugar

2 large eggs

1 tsp vanilla

2 1/2 cups flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 ( 12oz) pkg M&Ms (V’Day colored!)

 For BMC variations, chocolate, butterscotch or peanut butter chips, can be substituted for M&Ms.  Reeses Pieces or Butterfinger Pieces can also be substituted for M&Ms.  And/or any combination!  Oh, the possibilities!
