cups and cookies

I've been looking for just the right mugs for months and I think we found them yesterday at
Pier 1. We bought 6 white mugs, they are 16 ounces and have a design on the bottom that did not photograph so well.
I also got 4 floral mugs, sort of like Cath Kidston but made by Pier 1.
Yes, I got them all home, washed and put away without breaking this batch too!
I like milk in my hot tea so I had to get this cute cow creamer.
WW mini chocolate chip cookies
2 T butter, softened
2 t canola oil
1/2 C brown sugar
1/2 t vanilla
1/8 t salt
1 large egg white
3/4 C flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 c chocolate chips - I used the mini chips
preheat oven to 375.
In a medium bowl, cream together butter, oil, brown sugar and vanilla. Add egg white and mix thoroughly.
Stir in flour, salt and baking soda.
Stir in chips.
Drop by rounded half teaspoons onto baking sheet (I sprayed it lightly with Pam)
- I used the small Pampered chef scoop and got 24 cookies. WW says it will make 48 if make them 1/2 teaspoons.
Bake until just golden. 4-6 minutes for 1/2 teaspoons. My bigger ones took about 8 1/2 minutes.
Cool on wax paper or a wire rack.
WW says 2 cookies are 2 points - if you get 48 cookies from your batch.

I really like this recipe - they taste just as good as traditional cookies and use all normal ingredients.


  1. I love the pink floral ones! They are so pretty!

  2. I love those mugs! They are so cheerful and you cannot help but have a great start to your day when you have your tea with milk in them.

    I have a cow creamer like that. It has a funny story. It was bought in an extremely unaffordable shop in Stockholm, Sweden right after we got married. We would visit this shop on Saturdays to dream about all the lovely things. We bought the creamer as we felt we could afford it as we dreamed of other things. The shop in Sweden was from a famous French brand. Now we would not buy that brand not because we have no money but because we realize you can achieve that look on a budget. We still have the cow creamer and it is precious to us.

    Hugs ~

  3. Rhonda,

    I'm glad you got these cups into the house in one piece! They are very pretty and the cookies look yummy!

  4. Oh my, WW chocolate chip cookies? Is it possible to eat just one?

    Like your valentine look!

  5. These sound great for our diabetic daughter! Thanks (I came via Grocery Cart Challenge recipe swap).
