Surprising Cookies with the Tortilla Press...


See how to transform ordinary cookies into giant fun bites
using a simple tortilla press! These can be frozen and 
packed into lunches, keeping your sandwiches cool too.
How smart is that?

Enjoy my Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe...

Anitra's Chocolate Chip Cookies:

2 sticks butter, chilled
3/4 cups brown sugar
3/4 cups white sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
3 cups flour
1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips

In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter with the sugars until smooth. Add the vanilla
and eggs, and continue to whip on high speed until light and fluffy. Add baking soda, 
salt, and all the flour and chocolate chips at once, only stirring for 8 seconds until incorporated.

Form your golf-size dough balls, and press on the tortilla press between 2 pieces of 
parchment paper. Place flattened dough onto a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake
in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Remove from the oven and
allow to cool. Enjoy them right away, or wrap each one tightly in saran wrap and store
for later. If freezing the cookies, place wrapped cookies inside a freeze lock bag for extra
