Cookie Monster by the_polyvorina
Today is a day to bake cookies. It's chilly and rainy, so the oven will provide a touch of heat and the cookies can cheer you up as you wish for some sun already!
Here's my tried & true recipe for chocolate chip ones.
- 1/2 cup butter (softened or melted)
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- chocolate chips to your heart's desire!
- Pre-heat oven to 350°
- Mix all ingredients together in a bowl
- Roll dough into balls and drop on un-greased cookie sheet
- Bake for 8 - 10 minutes
Am I alone in actually sitting on the floor in front of the stove to watch them spread and bake? Yes, I actually do that for the full 8 minutes!
This recipe is pretty versatile too. You can add melted chocolate to the batter to make them chocolate, then add peanut butter chips or white chocolate chunks with macadamia nuts... I like plain ones with mini chocolate chips and Skor bits myself.
Ok! Well! All this talk of cookies... I need some right now! And they aren't going to bake themselves.
