C Is For Cookie

I'm taking you on a journey from A to Z through the land of dairy! 
There's no need to pack your bags, just come along! 
 C Is For Cookie
In honor of June Dairy Month, Bremer Farms provides cookies and milk (of course) to our church friends after the Sunday morning services on the first Sunday of June. This has become an annual event and a fun way to share our dairy story. We provide recipe booklets, bookmarks, coloring sheets for the kids, and every one goes home with an "I met a dairy farmer" sticker. 
 Many folks share stories of growing up on a farm, or visiting Grandpa's farm for summer vacation. Others ask many questions about farming because they have never had a personal connection to farming. 
Either way, my hope is that everyone goes home with a little better understanding about dairy farming, dairy foods, and realizes how proud we are of what we do and that we love what we do, down on the farm.



  •   1 cup butter, (of course!) softened
  •   1 cup shortening
  •   1 and 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  •   1 cup granulated sugar
  •   2 eggs
  •   2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  •   4 cups all-purpose flour
  •   2 teaspoon baking soda
  •   1 teaspoon salt
  •   4cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips


Heat oven to 350°F.  Beat butter and shortening in large bowl until well blended. Add brown sugar and granulated sugar; beat thoroughly. Add egg and vanilla, beating until well blended. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into butter mixture. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool 2 to 3 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.

I am making a commitment to share as much as I can with you each day this month, about the life of our dairy farm family including what we do, how we share our passion for dairy, and dairy foods we enjoy.
 See you here tomorrow...D is for Doo-Doo.
