Muffins and Cakes and Cookies Oh My!

Whew! Glad to be done with all the baking for the day!
Just thought I would stop in for a quick update.
Here are my FAVORITE chocolate chip cookies:
I can't remember if I've shared this before, but it's a fabulous recipe and super simple. It makes a ton of cookies, (depending on how big you like them) so I have plenty for the church Bethlehem nights and some to snack on at the lake as well!
You will need:
2 1/4 cups self rising flour
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter Crisco/shortening
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups chocolate chips
Cream shortening and sugars. Add vanilla and eggs and mix well. Stir in flour by hand and add chocolate chips. Spoon onto a lightly greased baking sheet and bake at 350 until golden brown. Enjoy while warm, or rather, I dare you to try not to enjoy warm!
Here is Sasa's Lemon Cheese Cake that I shared the recipe for earlier:
Trust HAVE to try this! The custardy, lemony filling soaks into the fluffy cake layers and creates a moist, spongy temptation of lemony goodness! MMMmmm!!! is my helper after a long day of's a tough job, but someone's got to do it!

Ta ta For Now!
