Cookies? We Have Cookies!

I had a request to please bake my special* toll house cookies this year. I haven't, in a few of years. I guess it's due. Can't disappoint Santa, hmmm? So, to the grocery last night I went, to pick up ingredients. This afternoon, loaded the Christmas CDs in the stereo, and got to baking.
Here's the assembly...








And here are some of the results:



Voila, Cookies! We're not done yet...once I rest my ankle (and do some knitting) I'm going to bake 1/2 a batch with chocolate chips and cranberries, and the other 1/2 with chocolate chips and crushed candy canes.
*special isn't really different from the recipe much...I use 1/2 tsp baking soda and 1/2 tsp baking powder instead of the 1 tsp. baking soda the ingredients list.

I love cookies but hate to bake them - so I make toll house cookie pie! Really hits the spot and is a quick version with the same taste!
