SUSAN, I did it!!!! :-)

Hi Susan… and everybody else :-)

Susan - over at Susan's Colorful Life - in all her kindness sent me her recipe for chocolate chip cookies :-)

ccc 003

We don’t make those cookies over here… some claim they do, but they just don’t taste the same as the real deal from the USA.

ccc 006

I have tried many different recipes, but never found one that I really like…

ccc 009

TODAY.. YES, on a monday , I made cookies

ccc 010

I had the day off… this was not the plan, but some changes were made due to sick-leave at work… and rearranging of hours :-)

ccc 011

I am a happy camper because of it though… I had today off, and will work thursday instead..

ccc 012

I have been cleaning the house and doing the laundry (again)… made dinner and finally made some cookies

ccc 013

I just threw in some chocolate and nuts.. I think I should have put a little bit more in..

ccc 014

BUT, everybody just LOVED them Susan.. a huge success!!!

YEAH!!!!!!! I'm so glad you finally have the "right" recipe! It was easy wasn't it!?!? Glad you had the day off and got to putter around and make the cookies. I have today off as well....however, we are celebrating Martin Luther King Day. Many are taking off tomorrow so they can stay home and watch the Presidential Inauguration.

One tip for the cookies....I don't think you can add TOO much chocolate or M&M's....nuts, either. Enjoy...they will go quickly!!!

We have had plenty already... hehe

Special day tomorrow for sure.. will be watching it myself for sure!!

Your cookies look so yummy. You make me want to bake a batch but I am dieting so I will have to resist the temptation. I'm glad you were able to make real American style chocolate chip cookies. Now you can spread cookie joy throughout all of Norway! LOL

MMMMM!!!! There is absolutely nothing better than a homemade chocolate chip cookie! Well homemade peanut butter is a close second but the chocolate wins hands down!
