If you leave nuts out of chocolate chip cookie recipes that call for them, add 1-2 Tbsp of flour to compensate. I used to have the same problem and the. Saw this on the bag of chocolate chips I use. Hope it helps!


Chilling the dough might work… I’ve been told that, but I never want to wait for it to chill so I’ve settled for flat cookies! The Fat Quarter Shop’s annual free Halloween quilt uses that fabric— I bought the kit— the backing fabric is just so adorable! Can’t wait to see what you make with it.

I will bake some without nuts and then add nuts to the remaining batter. Everyone is happy, nuts make it better 🥰

Your blocks are so worth the effort! How many blocks are you supposed to make a week? 4? They probably take you as long to press them as to sew them!!


Good job making progress on your blocks & getting that pesky one repaired! Eva will always remember her baking Tuesdays! I baked with our friends' daughter during the summers when she was young. Now that she's grown up she bakes all kinds of wonderful cookies & cakes & tells people she learned to bake from me. The truth be told, she's gone far beyond my pay grade & I'm so honored!

So glad you're persevering on those blocks, despite the frustrations and slow pace. They are gorgeous and will be well worth all the time and trouble. And hopefully once you get over this blip, it will actually be fun! Those cookies look delicious!


1) no such thing as too buttery
2) nuts in cookies and brownies always make it better
3) now I want cookies

I love Urban Chicks fabric design. their xmas designs have been among my favorite.

did you see what Jan wrote? now that melted my heart. I baked a few times with a neighbor's granddaughters. They use to come knock on my door because they loved my dog. my dog loved them back. it was pretty cute.

stay cool and don't work too hard...


These blocks take a lot of time. I decided to sew all my half square triangles together then chain piece everything. It's going to be a cute quilt which keeps me sewing, although I am already behind :/

My Mother’s chocolate chip cookies is the recipe on the back of the Nestle Chocolate Chip package EXCEPT she added 1 more cup of flour. Thick cookies perfect for dunking in milk! My daughter made them in college and still makes them to rave reviews!
