Moms, admit it. You know you want to be famous on the playground.
When I was a kid on the playground, I wasn’t famous. I remember that infamous day when I went to school with a ringworm cap. Oh. My. And another day when the Dr. had medicated my warts–all twenty, on my hands–and no one would touch the jump rope after my turn.
I’m surprised I made it out of elementary school alive.
So if you, too, need to be famous on the playground as-an-adult because you certainly weren’t as a child, this recipe is for you.
Go ahead. Start practicing your Fame Walk.
- 2 cups flour
- ⅓ cup sugar
- ⅓ cup brown sugar
- ½ t. salt
- 1 t. baking soda
- 2 t. baking powder
- 1 c. sour cream (that’s my other favorite part of the recipe- plain yogurt works as well)
- 1 cube melted butter
- 1 egg
- 1 t. vanilla
- 1 c. chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350
- Mix together first 6 ingredients
- Melt butter in microwave
- Stir in butter, egg, vanilla and chocolate chips
- Scoop into muffin pans
- Bake til lightly browned
“The Nuclear Family” and somehow the subject of homemade lunches comes up.
Then one day the professor calls you at home and says, “Please, please, Mrs. Donaldson, I must have that recipe!” Okay that last part I made up, but it makes a good story. And everyone likes a good story. Especially after having twenty warts. I think I need to make some muffins. I’ll wash my hands, first, never fear.
PS I often replace a 1/2 cup of the white flour with wheat when feeling especially virtuous. And it adds a nice crunch.
