How to make, baking cookies into a spa day. Milk and Cookies with Note Reading


It’s the holiday season and I know it’s the time for giving, but I just feel like I need time for me. Is there any pampering ideas I can do at home? Jane, 25

Tip from Tia:

It’s the holidays, and what good are the holidays without cookies to indulge you. So why not indulge yourself to the fullest, by making delicious cookies and getting a home spa treatment all in one. This tip will get you ready to fill your house with the sweet smell of cookies, while you pander to yourself. All you need are some simple cookie ingredients to make it a sweet spa day. We’ll first start with making the cookies. This first part is easy enough, even if you’ve never made them before. The recipe measurements are on the back of that yellow bag of Peanut Butter & Milk Chocolate Morsels, follow the Directions.

PREHEAT oven to 375 degrees

COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt into small bowl. Beat
butter sticks, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in a large
mixing bowl until creamy. Add one egg at a time beating well. Gradually add in
flour mixture from small bowl. Stir in morsels and nuts. Now, use a rounded
table spoon to scoop out the dough to make a good size cookie. Place dough on an
un-greased baking sheet.

BAKE for 9-11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking
sheets for 2 minutes than move to wire racks to cool completely. (I prefer using lots of foil when I make mine. One sheet of foil for each batch I’m about to cook, and then just remove the foil from the baking sheet and stack up as they cool, this makes really soft cookies.)

While the cookies cool, it’s time to delight you with a
Sweet Spa day Treatment. All you need are the following ingredients to make 3
separate pampering tips.


  • 1
    teaspoon baking soda
  • 1
    stick of butter
  • 1
    teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2
    large eggs
  • 1 2/3
    cups Peanut Butter & Milk Chocolate Morsels
  • 1
    tablespoon honey

Face First:

Take the 1 tablespoon honey, 1 egg and mix it with ½ stick
of butter. Blend until it has a thick consistency. You just made a simple
facial mask. Apply to fine lines around the eyes, forehead and laugh lines. Let
stand for 5 minutes and wash off.

Brighten that smile:

Next take the baking soda and mix with water to make a
paste. Then apply to your teeth. Let the paste stand on teeth for 4-10 minutes,
than brush teeth as usual. This is the safest way to brighten up that smile for
those holiday photos.

Hair a silky as

Then take the excess baking soda, ½ stick of butter, 1
teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 large egg, 1 2/3 cups Peanut Butter & Milk Chocolate Morsels (softened). Blend all together. This
has created a delicious hair masque. Apply to hair and let sit for 30 minutes
than shampoo and condition as usual. This will help with any breakage or

So there you have it, a home spa while your cookies are
cooling. Then, you can feel completely guilt free whether you eat or decide to package up
the cookies for your friends and family. And, don’t forget to save some for Santa!
