So, my question is, when do you get to claim a recipe as your own? After you've changed two ingredients? Four?

A couple of weeks ago we had part of the seasonal staff over and I make these cookies. Noah requested them again tonight, so after a quick stop at the trading post (got to love having a store right on camp property, you know, for all your pop and candy needs) I had what I needed.

This reciepe started out as "Nurse Becky Cookies" from the Barakel Cook Book, but I modified it. So, can I now call it mine? How about Yummy Goodness Cookies? That was Noah's suggestion.

Anyway. So here's the recipe. Be it a modification of "Nurse Becky Cookies" or Yummy Goodness Cookies

3/4 c white sugar
3/4 c brown sugar (you do know you don't need brown, you can just use another 3/4 white, right?)
1 c butter

2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla (make sure it's the real stuff, preferably from somewhere south of the border)

1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 c white flour
1 c whole wheat flour (alright, alright, just add another cup white if you don't have the whole wheat)

2- 2 1/2 c semi sweet chocolate chips (who are we kidding, why would you only add 2 cups?)
2 snickers bars, chopped up

Cream butter and sugars together. Add eggs and vanilla.

Add in the flours, salt, and baking soda. Mix together. Add in chocolate chips and snicker chunks.

Spoon on to ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 375 for about 12 minutes.



  1. I'm sure Nurse Becky is the type of lady that would be thrilled that you make her cookies- changes or not.
    And you ALWAYS need white and brown sugar. Who are you trying to fool?

  2. These cookies are making their way into my recipe box... and I'm calling them Kamper Kookies! :) I LOVE Snickers and I LOVE Nurse Becky's chocolate chip cookies... these are going to be a FAVORITE, I can already tell!! :)

    (Speaking of Nurse Becky, we ran into her at Fazoli's in Battle Creek a couple of weeks ago... totally random! :))

  3. ooh.. kamper kookies, i like it!

    and they sound amazing!

  4. Ashley, that's funny! Do you know she is no longer at camp? She moved to AZ at the end of the summer.

    Kara, you crack me up!

    And Jen, they are amazing! I think I had 3 last night!

  5. Liz, Liz, Liz. You ask too many questions. I could eat brown sugar out of the bag, I like it that much. Speaking of brown sugar, I posted a long time ago about Cheerios with brown sugar on them and the majority thought I was nuts. Have you ever tried them that way?
    (P.S. I also think Kamper Cookies has a nice ring to it.)

    Ha ha my word verification is "lickin"!

  6. lickin huh? No, I haven't tried cheerios with brown sugar...I don't think I would like the grittiness of sugar on cereal...You are too funny!

  7. Those look great! I am going to try to make those myself and i am going to call them Kamper Kookies because I like that name the best! Well, maybe the first one can be called Nurse Becky's but after that - Kampers.

  8. I totally made these yesterday and took them to school. ALL GONE! Yummy Goodness is right!!! :-) Kevin is asking for more. He feels left out because they all went to school.

  9. Erinn, glad you enjoyed them! And yes, I can understand why Kevin felt left out!


You are clever, tell me whatcha think!
