Oh, by the way - To the residents of my city... I appreciate your concern, but I was totally aware that I had no window. I know you had good intentions when you were swerving/waving/honking to get my attention, but it really just made it worse.
Anyway, I was really upset this afternoon, so I made cookies. Cookies always make people feel better. So here's a recipe for a super easy - and super yummy! - chocolate chip cookie!
Chocolate Chip Cookies
Preheat oven to 375F
3/4 c sugar
3/4 c brown sugar
1 c butter
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/4 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2-2 c chocolate chips.
Soften butter in microwave, or just let it warm up to room temperature. In a large bowl, put in butter, and both sugars. Grow a set, and use a fork to cream them, instead of using a hand mixer. Seriously.
Add eggs and vanilla, mix well.
Add flour and baking soda, and mix well. Dough should be fairly stiff - Oh, grow up.
Add chocolate chips and mix again.
Drop spoonfuls of dough on an ungreased baking sheet. Make sure they are about 1 inch apart. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until they are slightly brown on top.Let them cool for about 3 minutes, or eat them right away and ignore the advice of an expert.
As I've said before, recipes are a guideline. You can add 1/2 c of chopped walnuts, or a handful of M&Ms/Smarties/Reece's Pieces. Add some cinnamon. Make these your own creation!!
