Cookies for dinner
Let’s talk about baking.
I may not be much of a cook, but baking is totally my thing. There’s something about blending sugar & butter until it’s nice and fluffy. Or sinking my hands into a warm ball of dough. Oh and the scent of sweetness coming from the oven.
Maybe it’s the fact that there’s no room for interpretation. I have to follow the recipe exactly. And when I do, it always comes out the way it’s supposed to.
This afternoon I wanted to bake cookies, and I knew exactly where to go.
The pictures alone on Jessica’s blog make me wish someone would hurry up and invent a scratch ‘n sniff computer screen.
After searching her site for longer than I care to admit, I went with the chewy chocolate chip oatmeal cookies.
They did not disappoint.
They were delicious!! Next time I’m going to leave out the cinnamon and add raisins.
I was originally looking for a cake batter cookie recipe, but realized I didn’t have a cake mix on hand. Then I found her red velvet thumbprints with marshmallow frosting cookies, but again didn’t have all of the ingredients. Bummer.
Guess I’ll be hitting up the grocery store soon.
I didn’t intend to dedicate a whole post to baking, but hey, it happens.
Oh and I made meatloaf for dinner, but ate a few cookies first.
I do what I want.
