Cookies and a Shot!

Today I'm going to share 2 cookie recipes.  One is from my mother-in-law, and the other is my Nunny's recipe.

Haystack Cookies

What you'll need
6oz pkg butterscotch chip (you can use chocolate or any variation, but butterscotch are yummy)
1/4 cup chunky peanut butter
2 cups mini marshmallow
3 oz can chow mein noodles (I got a bag and measured out 3oz)

Melt chips in double boiler
If you've never done this, it's really easy once you learn that 
1. let the water boil
2. put the chips in top part and turn off the heat
3. it will melt without the burner being on, if you leave the burner on, it will over cook the chips

Mix in peanut butter, then remove from stove

Mix in marshmallows and noodles
Spoon onto wax paper to harden

If you don't like marshmallow or you have someone allergic to peanut butter, simply don't add those.
Melt the chips, remove from heat and add the chow mein noodles.  It can't get much simpler than that.
Oh, and my mother-in-law melts her chips in the microwave, if you don't have a double broiler.

My Nunny's Galette Cookie

What you'll need:
8 eggs
4 sticks butter melted
6 cup flour
2 cup white sugar
2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Galette iron

Beat Eggs in bowl separately
Cream butter, sugar, add eggs
Vanilla then flour

I use a cookie scooper to add the dough to the iron, it puts just the right amount on it
Heat on 45 seconds on both sides on medium heat.  My knob is pointed straight up and down when I have the perfect heat.

 The cookies should be a pretty golden brown
The left is perfect, the one on the right is burnt
We love these cookies at Christmas.  They may not be for everyone, but they are good!

This recipe makes a lot of cookies!

I couldn't resist a picture of my little helpers!

I need a Galette Iron!!! I am constantly thinking of new cookware and gadgets to get and I don't know how I didn't think of that iron. I've seen them, I'm familiar with them, and Santa has already left for the year. Ahhh!
