Snow Day Cookies

We had snow, I mean a lot of snow. So the Sweets got not one, but two snow days this week. They had a blast, I'm still trying to recover, think play-dough in the carpet. Well on day two they decided at about 8 a.m. that they MUST have chocolate chip cookies. I said "maybe" thinking they would forget, but after being asked 200 times over the course of the day I gave in around 3 p.m. Luckily I had the ingredients and didn't have to go out in the muck. I did get a little creative when my brown sugar turned out to be a solid block, but they turned out really yummy. Here is the recipe for you to share with your loved ones on the next snow day or maybe Valentine's Day.

Chocolate Chip- Oatmeal Cookies

1 c. softened butter
1 c. white sugar
1/2 c. honey (dark)
1 egg
1 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp baking soda

1 bag chocolate chips

combine the butter, sugar and honey until blended. Add in the egg and vanilla, stir well. Mix in the flour, baking soda and oats, stir until combined. Add the chocolate chip and stir. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
