What's for Breakfast?

And why not? We've got a traditional family recipe for breakfast cookies that is so easy and delicious! Phil's close-up photo is pretty cool, if I do say so myself.

You can see what the rest of the team over at Get It Scrapped! has done for this Baking and Cooking Assignment. I think I will have time to try out a few new cookie recipes this year. Any suggestions?

Breakfast Cookies (makes about 3 dozen)
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup melted shortening and butter (I go half and half)
2 eggs
3 cups flour
1 t. soda
1 t. cream of tartar
1 T. vanilla

Mix ingredients, put in rolls, wrap in wax paper and refrigerate overnight. Slice thick and bake 7-9 minutes at 400 degree.


  1. mmmm mmmmm mmmm good. Sounds delicious.

  2. those sound awesome and i love the design of your layout!

  3. Love the photo of just the hands and the cookies. It seems like we've been having cookies alot for breakfast around here. Nothing like cookies and coffee to start out the day! Love your layout and the colors!!

  4. So many great details on here. I love it! Fantastic photo too. Are these a bit like biscotti once they're baked?

    1. Only if I overbake them, Lisa! Right out of the oven, they are so soft and melt in your mouth.

  5. I love the stitched border! The layout looks great! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  6. Cute layout, love the stitched border
