Happy Friday! My kiddos have off from school today so I have to make this short today. They are waiting for their breakfast. I recently hosted a Christmas cookie recipe swap and this is the page that I made for my swap.  The cookie pages were to be designed with a holiday theme in mind.

The recipe I used is for my famous Chocolate Chip cookies. Really, everyone loves them. When I take them to bake sales they sell out fast and I have friends that wait for me to make them every year. I'll post the recipe below so that you can save it for yourself.

To make my page all I really did was to randomly stamp my background using old olive and cherry cobbler ink and then I decided to hunt for my spritzer tool and splatter my background. I really had to dig for my spritzer tool; I think it's been ages since I've used it. I used my cherry cobbler Stampin' Up! marker for my spritzing.

Then I printed my recipe from my computer and I decided not to go with the traditional black ink and so I tried picking a burgundy color ink that I thought would match. For my embellishment I used a spiral clip with a small piece of ribbon attached. That's a great way to use up some of your ribbon scraps.

That's about it for today. Just yesterday I decided to host my first cookie exchange party so I'm hoping all the new recipes from my swap will come in handy.

Have a great weekend. I'll be back on Monday!  And before I forget here is my cookie recipe just in case you aren't able to read it from my photograph:

The best Chocolate Chip Cookies ever!

4 ½ cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 sticks of marg or butter softened
¾ cup granulated sugar
¾ cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
2 (12 ounce) packages Milk Chocolate Chips
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine flour, baking soda and
salt & set aside. Beat butter sugars and vanilla in mixer bowl
until creamy. Add eggs & mix well. Gradually beat in flour
mixture (I use my dough hooks when adding the flour since the
batter will become thick). Stir in morsels and nuts- (I mix in
these by hand). Drop cookies onto ungreased cookie sheet.
(They do not spread very much so you can place them close
together). Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Let
cool, move to cooling rack, & let cool again. Enjoy!
