Choc Chips Walnuts Cookies

I'm late tonight...really late... its 11pm already... a very busy day indeed. How I wish I am at least 10 years younger, ok ok... at least 5 years younger, can ah... then I won't tire so easily.

Ok, my busy schedule started after work at 5pm.. rushed home to change into my attire for my badminton appointment. (sorry kids, monday is mum's off day from the kitchen, just go do your own cooking, OK?) No la, I am not so bad a-mother-one... got tar-pau curry fish from the canteen... LOL.. (still bad, huh?)

Anywaysss.. back from badminton around 7.15pm... Girlie said, "Mi, lets make some cookies!" HUH? At this time of the night? My body still on the cooling down mode... but seeing her anticipated face, I don't have the heart to say NO... "Ok, ok... but promise you help me till the end, DEAL?"

So.... after my shower, body clean clean, we went to the kitchen, butter was still hard but then, who cares... just do it quick and as Frank Sinatra said, "Do It My Way" (elin, don't laugh!)

My way... yeah... All who see this, please don't laugh, OK (but u can snicker, though :) )

The making of an amateurish cookie maker...

the dough...

(Elin, i know u r stiffling your laughter now...
i can sense it!)

my odd shaped cookies in the baking...

and after 15-20 min....the outcome

phew.... phew... after 3 hours...
our mission accomplished ... finally!!

oh btw, this is choc chips walnut cookies
(siapa wants recipe, hands up? oh, no one geh...)

Girlie is very "kan", halfway through, she went missing and Mummy has to shout like Tarzan then only she reappeared... (next time cannot trust her words).. after much grumbling, we managed to get 4 plastic tins of cookies...
(one for u, one for her , one for him, one for....... Italy boy?
