I bet you didn’t know that these women were Girl Scouts before they became famous: Vanessa Williams, Jan Davis (NASA Astronaut), Barbara Walters, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Lucy Ball, Shirley Temple Black, and Bette Davis, just to mention a few.
My recipe this week is called “Cookie Sticks.” These are easy, heavenly, and delicious. But don’t’ forget to buy Girls Scout cookies and support your local Girl Scout Troop in your community. Enjoy!!!!
1/2 cup of canola oil
1/2 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 - 1/2 cups of all purpose unbleached flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup of semisweet chocolate chips
In a large bowl, combine the oil, sugars, egg, and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to sugar mixture and mix well. Divide dough in half. On a greased baking sheet, shape each portion into a 15-in. X 3-in. rectangle about 3 in apart. Sprinkle chocolate chips over dough; press lightly. Bake at 375°F for 7-8 minutes. (Bake for 9-10 minutes for crispier cookies) All depending on your oven. Cool for 5 minutes. Use a pizza cutter to cut each section into 4 large pieces to make them easy to transfer to cooling racks. Use a serrated knife to cut the cooled sections into 1 -inch strips. Enjoy!
Till Next Time……….
