You can put these cookies on an un-greased cookie sheet to bake, but I always like to use parchment paper for easy baking and cleanup.

1 tsp. baking soda

1. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper
2. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
3. Drop dough by rounded spoonfuls onto cookie sheet. (12 cookies per sheet)

This recipe is adapted from the Nestle Toll House Recipe. It is divided into two days for use in a Home Economics classroom with 45 minute class periods. If you are baking in your home kitchen or teaching in a blocked classroom, you can make the recipe in one day. When using this recipe in a classroom, I give each kitchen 1 cup of chocolate chips. This saves money and stretches the budget so that there can be more cooking opportunities.
Homemade Baby Wipes
1 Roll of Paper Towels – cut in half horizontally
2 1/2 Cups of Water
2 Tablespoons of Baby Wash
1 Tablespoon Baby Oil
1 plastic container large enough to hold half the paper towels (with lid)
Remove the cardboard center from the paper towels. Place 1/2 of the liquid ingredients into the container. Put the lid on and shake. Place 1/2 of the paper towels in the container, put the lid back on and shake some more. Let it sit for 15 minutes. When your ready to use the wipes, just pull from the center of the roll.
I saw this recipe on 2 Wired 2 Tired, a blog that I follow and decided I had to try it. It was easy to make and is a lot less expensive than buying Pampers wipes.
I have been using these wipes for about a week now and I really like them. I love the way they smell and they are so soft. I feel like they clean better than regular baby wipes too. I put them into a ziploc bag until I went to the store and purchased a plastic container. I am going to mix up the liquid and put it in a spray bottle too for use with cloth wipes since I use cloth diapers a lot at home.
