i made these

and then ate them.  

here's the recipe:

2 cups all purpose flour (slightly more if dough seems too wet)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tbsp vanilla extract (cause my grandma taught me to always put a little extra, it makes the dough taste better)
1 egg
1 egg yolk
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup dark chocolate bar chopped into small pieces

1. preheat the oven to 325 degrees.  line cookie sheet with parchment paper.

2. sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside

3. in a medium bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown and white sugar until well blended.  beat in the vanilla, egg, and yolk until light and creamy.  

4. mix in the dry ingredients until just blended.  stir in the chocolate chips and chopped chocolate bar by hand using a wooden spoon.  

5. drop spoonfuls of cookie dough onto prepared cookie sheets and bake for about 10 minutes, or until the edges are lightly browned.  cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

Early Thursday

My sister Mip and I have started to get our Etsy shop (Early Thursday) going, for real this time. We named it Early Thursday because when we were in elementary school, we got out early on Thursdays.  It was our favorite day of the week.   Anyway, take a look at our Valentine's cards and other cards.  We'll be posting other things shortly.  Stay tuned.
