I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Chocolate Covered Raisin Cookies

Whether you like Hershey's Glosettes or Nestlé's Raisinets, you'll love these cookies. Besides those yummy little nuggets you'll also need:

1/2 cup butter
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla

3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar

1  3/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 cup chocolate covered raisins

Cream together the butter, egg and vanilla, then add the sugars.

Mix the flour, baking powder and soda together and add to the wet ingredients.

Fold in the chocolate chips and the chocolate covered raisins.

Roll cookie dough in your hands into walnut-sized balls. Place on parchment
or silicone mat lined baking sheet. 
Bake at 375 F for 13 - 15 minutes until lightly browned. Here's a little peak at them in the oven.
(I know, I need to clean the oven.  Who has time?)
If they're touching when you take them out of the oven, simply cut through with a knife or spatula.
Cool 5 minutes then remove to rack.
Makes 24 jumbo cookies
Great with a cup of tea or to dip in hot chocolate.
