"With Pomp, Power & Glory the world beckons vainly, In chase of such vanities why should I roam?While Peace & Content bless my little thatched cottage,And warm my own hearth with the Treasures of Home."*Beatrix Potter

An Amish Chocolate Treat

Dear readers here is the much asked for recipe for the cookies I baked on Saturday & posted on Instagram.

Amish Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 cups of brown sugar
2 cups of white sugar
2 teaspoons of salt
2 cups of half margarine & shortening ( I use Trex for my English readers)
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
4 teaspoons of baking soda
6 eggs
4 teaspoons of cream of tartar
7 cups of flour (plain)
2 to 3 packets of chocolate chips ( I used dark chocolate chips & also chopped up a bar of dark chocolate)

Mix together in order given & drop by a large teaspoon full onto a greased sheet.
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes at 375o
I put one third into a cake tin & the other two thirds I froze ready for picnics.

Fondly Michelle
