Chocolate Chip Sugar Cookie Drops: Cooking with Mara

Mara (aka the girl child) and her dad have always enjoyed spending time together in the kitchen. He's way more patient than I am, what can I say? Yesterday they whipped up a batch of these lovely little sugar cookies...most of which I have already eaten. Recipe at the bottom of this post.
Adding the chocolate chips.... Mixing it all up.....
She gets it from the other side of the family... Such concentration....
Dropping the cookies on the pan....

Yum!

Recipe:

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1 1/2 tsp. baking powder

3/4 tsp salt

1 1/4 cup sugar, divided

3/4 cup vegetable oil

2 eggs

1 tsp. vanilla

1 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. In small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. In large bowl, combine 1 cup sugar and oil; mix well. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Gradually add the flour mixture. Stir in chips. Form into balls and roll in remaining sugar. Bake 8-10 minutes.

LOVE her apron. I can't cook without one - I always manage to get something on me even though I'm not a slob. Psh. My clothes like me to look homeless and poor I guess.

Those are looking pretty tasty...now if only I had my own cookie elf...
