Kaitlins Chocolate Cookies

As I mentioned in my last post - I am following my preliminary turkey day post with some recipes!

Kaitlin has been kind enough to share her recipe for chocolate cookies....They sound super simple - and although I haven't tried to make them yet - I have eaten them.  They are delicious!

1 12 oz bag of chocolate chips
1 stick of butter
6 tablespoons of sugar (more or less depending on how sweet you want them, I usually do a little more)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 1/4 cup flour

  1. melt butter and chocolate chips, stir
  2. add sugar, vanilla and sweetened condensed milk, mix until fully blended
  3. add flour, if batter seems to thin add a little more
  4. bake at 350 8-10 minutes
I also promised my stuffing recipe.  The truth is, the stuffing is not belongs to the one and only TV chef who I love to hate....Giada De Laurentiis.  I have to be honest - that the only reasons I love to hate Giada is because her recipes are delicious and rich, and I've never had one fail - but they are so good that I don't understand how she stays so tiny, she has a succesful cooking/television career, and her husband is a designer for Anthropologie - so that is where her gorgeous clothes come from...sigh.  Some girls have all the luck.


My mother has made this recipe several times.  From our taste-tests we decided that the chestnuts are not we omit them.  They don't really bring anything special to the dish in our opinion.  Also, the bakery at Shaw's doesn't stock cornbread, and I really didn't have any spare time to bake my own, so I used the dried cornbread stuffing mix from the good people at pepperidge farm.

Thanks for sharing your recipe Kaitlin!!
