Spending your first Christmas away from is home hard. Spending that Christmas overseas is even harder.
But I’m doing my best to enjoy the season and get into the holiday spirit. And nothing says holidays like a big plate of cookies!
Baking is one of my favorite things to do, and while the kitchen may look like a tornado hit it when I’m through, the results are worth it.
I hope the hubs and my mom (who arrives in Sofia tomorrow! EEK!) enjoy them. And if you make them, I hope you do too!
Without further ado…
GMB’s Chocolate Chip and Walnut Cookies:

Preheat oven to 300F (174C)
Cream together white sugar, brown sugar, and softened butter. Stir in vanilla. Beat in egg until smooth. Add salt and baking soda, stir. Combine flour, chocolate chips, and walnuts until well mixed.
Drop large spoonfuls onto ungreased backing pan
Cook for 10 min. or until golden brown around edges
Makes: 2 dozen
*I usually double this recipe, but while we’d love to devour 48 cookies, 2 dozen is much more manageable!
