Before you all go naming your griffins "Buckbeak" lemme lay some mythology on ya. Buckbeak from Harry Potter was actually a hippogriff which is a horse combined with a eagle. A griffin is a lion combined with an eagle. Just keep this in mind before going on a Buckbeak naming spree.
I don't have any tips but I can make chocolate chip cookies....Ingredients
cup granulated sugar
cup packed brown sugar
cup butter or margarine, softened
cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
teaspoon baking soda
cup coarsely chopped nuts
package (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips (2 cups)
Heat oven to 375ºF.
Mix sugars, butter, vanilla and egg in large bowl. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt (dough will be stiff). Stir in nuts and chocolate chips.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light brown (centers will be soft). Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet. Cool on wire rack.
