Going to Japan Bar Cookies
Friday, October 19, 2007
Today, my mom flew back to Okinawa, Japan to visit my 87-year-old grandmother and her family. My mom has not flown on an airplane in 11 years, and a lot has changed since then. She got a wee bit confused with the new restrictions... she thought she could not bring any liquids or gels, even in her checked luggage!
After dropping my mom off at LAX, I went to work where we had a lunch potluck. I made some Nestlé bar cookies with the Nestlé swirled chips -- a swirl of white chocolate and semisweet chocolate. I used the chocolate chip cookie recipe on the back of the package, adding two tablespoons of flour since I was omitting the nuts, and spread it out in a jelly roll pan.
You mix in about two thirds of the package in the batter and scatter the remaining chips on top. I think the morsels are very cute!
I loaned my mom my digital camera so I may not have new posts for about one week!
