Virtual Great American Bake Sale

Have you seen the Great American Bake Sale that is taking place across America? Its a wonderful program that endeavours to put an end to child hunger. There is a virtual version of this program taking place across the blogosphere. Just a little info about the Virtual Great American Bake Sale:

100% of the proceeds from the sale of these ebooks will go toward Share Our Strength's Great American Bake Sale program. Funds raised through Great American Bake Sale are donated to after-school and summer feeding programs--food programs that many kids depend on when school is not in session. Great American Bake Sale is a program of Share Our Strength, a national organization working to make sure no kid in America grows up hungry.The ebooks are a compilation of recipes from submitters across the blogosphere and beyond. The ebooks are available for purchase based on any donation amount of the buyer's choosing.


Here's the recipe I contributed:


White Chip Chocolate Cookies




Ingredients:

1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups white sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 2/3 cups white chocolate chips
2 cups all-purpose flour

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time and then stir in vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. Once combined, stir into the creamed mixture. Fold in white chocolate chips. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
3. Bake for 8-10 minutes in the preheated oven or until cookies are set. Allow cookies to cool 5 minutes and then move to wire rack to cool completely.


These were delicious, though very rich.
