The Snowy Day

I work in an elementary school and teachers speak a special language “picture book.” Anyone who has spent some time in a school or with little kids knows that The Snowy Day is an excellent picture book about what else but a snowy day. We read this book to the kids before the first big snow storm each year (thanks to Mother Nature we have not yet had the opportunity to share this literary gem). We teachers firmly believe just as Apple suggests for everything “there is an app for that” for any given situation, mood or lesson “there is a picture book for that.” We express our feelings with I Love you This Much, celebrate seasons with The Snowy Day, and refer to all of our bad days as Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Days!


I woke up giddy this morning planning on spending my Snowy Day doing laundry, cleaning and my favorite snow day activity baking. Despite my excitement, the white stuff failed to fall from the sky. I decided to bake anyway.

Enjoy my snow day Chocolate Chocolate Chip Butterscotch Cookies:

1 cup butter – room temperature
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups flour
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
Preheat the oven to 350  degrees
Using a mixer cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy then add eggs one at a time mixing until combined then add vanilla.
In a separate bowl sift together dry ingredients – flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Mix into the butter mixture until well blended. Mix in the chocolate chips and butterscotch chips.
Use a tablespoon to drop unto a greased cookie sheet bake for 8 to 10 minutes until set. Cool on a wire rack completely.
I hope that you all enjoy your not so Snowy Day tell me about all The Places You’ll Go today!
