Hello from AZ!!!

Hello, hello, hello! Sorry I haven't posted in a few days, but we have been traveling for what seems like FOREVER! It took us 40+ hours to get from Germany to Arizona. We sat on the tarmac for 3 hours in Germany before taking off which caused us to miss our connecting flight in Baltimore. So, we ended up getting a hotel room for a couple hours and flying out to Arizona the next day. The kids did AMAZING! I am so blessed to have such wonderful kiddos who are such troopers. They are adjusting well to the time difference, although Eric is waking up a bit more than usual. Oh well... he is only 8 months, so I expected as much!

I wanted to share this cookie recipe that I found at Bunny's Warm Oven. As soon as I saw it posted, I knew I had to make them! I made a batch the day before we flew out so that we could have some yummy cookies on the plane. These were soooo good! But, seriously, how could they not be good with 5 different chips in them!!!

Five Chip Cookies
1 c. butter or margarine, softened
1 c. creamy peanut butter
1 c. granulated sugar
2/3 c. packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 c. all-purpose flour
1 c. old-fashioned oats
2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2/3 c. EACH milk chocolate chips, semisweet chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, vanilla chips and butterscotch chips
In a large mixing bowl, cream butter, peanut butter and sugars. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine flour, oats, baking soda and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture. Stir in chips.
Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 2" apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake @ 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool for 2-3 minutes on baking sheets before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
Makes about 4 1/2 dozen.

Hehehe, you are in AZ! Wow, glad you and the kids did well on the flight there. How is the weather? I am going to be there visiting the in-laws again in April. I am going to bake cookies for them so I will keep these in mind. Did you miss the Super Bowl game then? Miss you, Boo!

I flew with my girls a lot when they were babies and toddlers but not quite as far as you did! Great job and I hope you have a fabulous visit stateside. These cookies might be the secret travel weapon; you might have to try another batch for the return flight just to be sure!

Ingrid said...

Yay, you made it and that's wonderful that the kids did so well for you! 40 hours, WOW!

Bunny does have some awesome food on her blog. I just made some peanut butter brownies from her blog as well. I'll be blogging about them hopefully this week.
