When you're counting every penny, things like treats are few and far between. But this past weekend, I was itching to bake (and eat something sweet!) So with my 2 girls we came up with this recipe.
Makes 12-16 pieces
2 c. flour
2/3 c. sugar (*used brown sugar, we ran out of sugar.)
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 bag of semi-sweet mini chocolate chips (*had a few chips left, but used cookie sprinkles also, which gave us the new name!)
3 large eggs, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla extract
In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, soda, salt and chips (and sprinkles.)
Add eggs and vanilla stirring until blended. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead 8-10 times. Form into a 2x16" log.
Place log on baking sheet coated with nonstick cooking spray.
Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove, cool 10 minutes. Reduce oven heat to 325 degrees.
Place on a cutting board and cut with serrated knife in a sawing motion into 1/2" slices. Place cut side up on the sheet, bake 10 minutes.
Turn slices over and bake an additional 10-12 minutes until golden. Place on wire rack to cool.
