The little girl raided the bookshelf and found Mrs. Field's Cookie Book. (BTW, thanks Auntie C!). She marked the recipe with a post-it and then asked me every day for a week if we could make the cookies. I replied (every day) that we could on a day when she had no classes in school.
Last weekend, we finally baked these...
I followed the recipe
quite faithfully, except for a couple of changes... I used the seeds of
1 vanilla bean, and half the amount of vanilla extract. And, instead
of chilling and rolling out the dough, I placed it in a piping bag with a
star tip and piped out rosettes and a heart...
The instructions said not to let the edges turn brown but as you can see, my cookies were a tad over-baked!
the little girl was happy! She took a bite and said: "Mommy! I love
you cookies more and more! They get more delicious every time!"
