Desastre / Disaster

Hoy fue nuestro desastroso día horneando. La receta que tenía de galletas no fue la mejor, en realidad a ninguno de nosotros le gustaron. En un momento dado le dije a Paola, mira las galletas que hicimos y me contestó yo quiero de las otras esas no,ja. Estaba haciendo bolas de chocolate y el chocolate se me quemó, por lo tanto las bolas terminaron en el refrigerador hasta que compre más chocolate. Lo único bueno fueron los bizcochitos de piña y coco (menos mal que salieron bien por que Pablo tiene que llevar varios hoy a su trabajo).

Aún así quiero decirles que quiero hacer GALLETAS, por favor alguien me puede dar una receta fácil, sencilla y sabrosa, no sé galletas de azúcar o algo así. Para que rían un poco aquí les enseño el resultado de mi tarde horneando.

Les deseo una Feliz Noche Buena y que Dios las bendiga siempre.



Mi regalo de Navidad # 24 es: Orar

Today was our disastrous baking day. The recipe for cookies was not the best, none of us liked them. I asked Paola to taste one of the cookies and she answered that she prefered the other ones (Cameo), ha. I was trying to do chocolate balls and the chocolate got burned, therefore the balls finished in the refrigerator until we can buy more chocolate. The only good things were the pineapple and coconut cupcakes (at least those came out right because they were for Pablo to take to his work).

Even so I still want to do COOKIES, please can someone give me a tasty, simple, and easy recipe, maybe sweet cookies or something like that. Just for the fun of it here I you can see the results of my baking afternoon disaster.

Happy Christmas Eve and God bless you always.

Chocolate Chip Cookies (the best)

2 ¼ cups flour (2 ½ for softer cookies)
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 cup Crisco and 1 tbsp. water (or 1 cup butter, but cookies won’t be as good)HERE I UESD BUTTER FLAVOR CRISCO and NO Water...DO NOT USE butter.
¾ cup white sugar
¾ cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
2 cups chocolate chip cookies (more is better!)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Mix first three ingredients and set aside.
Beat Crisco, 2 sugars, and vanilla with a mixer until well combined, about five minutes (at least five minutes longer is better – this is key to making great cookies!).
Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Gradually beat in flour mixture until moistened.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Bake 8-12 minutes or more, depending on oven (or depending on the size you make the cookies!).

Monitor your time as all ovens are different. As you are baking not open the oven...look at them through the glass. once you feel they are perfect, take them out and let cool. Cook remaining cookies to the exact time you cooked the first ones...

Makes five dozen small cookies (or two dozen really large ones!)

I hope everything works out...sorry about the burned ones.
Merry CHRISTmas
