Prayer for true beauty:

Father God,

We are so sorry for all those times that we have looked at our bodies and have criticized the perfection that you created in us. We thank you for our uniqueness and for making each one of us different so that we may enjoy being individuals.

Help us to accept our selves as you created us and when we look into a mirror help us to see the beauty our friends see in us. Help us to focus on Christ within us and to shine brightly with your love.

May we all grow old gracefully, Amen

Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are my signature treat and I get asked to make a batch at least once a week and not just by my kids.

Recipe – English Measurements

Preheat oven: 160 C  – if you cook these low and slow they are crispy on outside and chewy on the inside

Baking time: 15 mins

175 g  plain flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

Stir flour, baking powder and salt together and set aside.

100 g butter (softened – get it out of the fridge an hour before you use it)

90 g caster sugar

75 g  brown sugar

In mixer bowl combine butter and sugars and beat until fluffy.

Add 1 egg and mix again until blended.

Add 1 tsp vanilla extract and mix again until blended.

Gradually add flour mixture until just blended.

Add 150 g chocolate chips and gently stir into cookie dough

Line your cookie sheet with baking parchment. Using two teaspoons, pick-up a little dough in one and transfer between the spoons to form into a ball. Then push the rounded tsp of dough onto a cookie sheet. Place on the bottom oven rack and bake for (12- 15 mins) until edges look crisp and top is light brown.
