Hockey Night in Alberta

Well hockey fans, tonight is the night. What night? you may be asking yourselves. This is it, the first regular season showdown in the Battle of Alberta!! Although our Flames whooped the Oilers pretty good in the pre-season we're now playing for points, so the stakes are definitely higher!

In honour of the occasion my boys (all decked out in their John Deere aprons!) and I got down to business this morning and baked up some of their favorite (well...okay mine too!) chocolate chip cookies! There's still plenty of time to whip up a batch for the game tonight, or for any other occasion, or maybe just because you're like me and love chocolate chip cookies!

Chocolate Chip Cookies

3/4 c butter, softened
1 c brown sugar, packed
1/4 c sugar
1 egg
2 t vanilla
2 c flour
2 t cornstarch
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1 1/2 c chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream together butter and sugars until smooth. Add egg and vanilla. Stir in flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. Stir in chocolate chips.

Drop by rounded tablespoon onto greased baking sheet.

Flatten slightly and bake for 8 minutes, until edges are golden.
