yummy rainbow cookies

Actually, the recipe calls for chocolate chips, after all, it is a chocolate chip cookie recipe. But I don't have chocolate chips so I used rainbow coloured candy coated chocolate bits.

Here's the recipe: 

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1 egg yolk
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (or in this case, candy coated chocolate bits)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Sift flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.
Cream together melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended.
Beat in vanilla, egg and egg yolk until light and creamy.
Mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended. Stir in chocolate chips by hand using a wooden spoon.
On a baking sheet, drop spoonfuls and make sure they are at least 3 inches apart.
Bake for 15-17 minutes.

Makes 24 cookies. 

I think I need a tall glass of milk!
