Happy Valentines !

Graphics Fairy Credit, I added the stamp and the address
Happy Day, Everyone! This is the day that we show appreciation for those that we love and care about and that is YOU!

And to show you how much I care, I am giving you my absolute favorite recipe for chocolate chip cookies....giant ones!

Giant Crisp Chocolate Chip Cookies from All Recipes

Submitted By: Patricia Boccaccio
Cook Time: 25 Minutes
Servings: 10

"Giant chocolate chip cookies like in the bakery."
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups semisweet chocolate
1 cup chopped salted almonds, chopped ( this is my addition)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Mix flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, then stir in the vanilla. Mix in the dry ingredients until well blended. Stir in the chocolate chips and chopped almonds. Using a 2 inch ice cream scoop, scoop and place them 3 inches apart onto parchment lined cookie sheets.
Bake for23-25 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Warning: You may have to hide one of these for yourself as they go really fast!                                            Love, ♥Charlotte

I love this recipe....I'm thinking I may make it today. Hope I don't get "fluffy". :)

Now...about the clothespin bag. I added a few more pics. I didn't do anything except top stitch lace onto the bottom of the bag, attached the graphic with buttons and add vintage millinery flowers. Promise...the entire thing took less than 30 minutes to finish!
