hello scrumptious!

Deliciousness abounds here at Two Nuts in a Shell!

Chocolate-Butterscotch Chip Cookies
(these may very well be the best cookies ever made)

Basic sugar cookie recipe:
1 ½ cups powdered sugar
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla {I used 2 as usual, because I love vanilla}
1 large egg
2 ½ cups all purpose flour (not self rising)
1 teaspoon baking soda

1. Heat oven to 375-degrees F.
2. In large bowl, beat powdered sugar, butter, vanilla and egg with electric mixer on medium speed. Stir in flour and baking soda.

For Chocolate-Butterscotch Chip Cookies...
Add half a bag of Hershey Special Dark Chocolate Chips and half a bag of Nestle Toll House Butterscotch Morsels to dough. Mix well.

3. Bake 7-8 minutes until edges are golden brown. Cookies will be pale. {I had to cook mine for 12 minutes because our oven is lame}


I don't know if there is an actual recipe for this type of cookie--I like to think I made it up, because I happened to love the combination of chocolate and butterscotch. But if there is a recipe out there, don't tell me! ;) These cookies are nice and rich, so be sure to have a tall glass of milk near by.

And now some deliciousness for your eyes (since we've taken care of your stomach).

This lovely set of vintage luggage now has a proud owner: ME! I found this delectable treat on eBay for a mere $75. It took almost my whole allowance, but it was money well spent! The outsides are in near-perfect condition, the insides are flawless, and the key is included! Such a set has escaped me for years (I've always wanted old fashioned luggage, even before I was ever "into" the whole vintage styling). I believe these are from the late fifties, early sixties. They're absolutely beautiful and I can't wait to get my little paws on them! I've been picturing myself stepping off the plane in Oregon with my suitcase and hatbox in hand, perfectly complimenting my vintage-esque outfit, curled coif, and artfully applied make-up.

...okay, so I'm a bit more rumpled and disheveled after an airplane ride, but I can dream can't I?!
