my fave: chocolate chip cookies

So, I had a DAY yesterday. A total #firstworldproblems kind of day. Nothing catastrophic happened, but put it all together and yesterday’s series of events were enough to land me curled up crying in bed.

So I made #homemade cookies. #showmethecookie





Chocolate Chip Cookies
(adapted from my peaches and cream cookies)

What you need:
2 1/4 cups flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup softened butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1.5 cups chocolate chips

How to:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees

In a medium bowl combine flour, baking soda, and salt

In a large bowl cream together butter and sugars (I use a handheld beater), add egg and vanilla, beat until smooth.

Slowly add dry ingredients to the wet mix. Once combined stir in chocolate chips.

Line baking sheet with foil/parchment/silpat; roll dough into small balls then flatten a little on the baking sheet (to 1/4 – 1/2 inch). Warm day? Refrigerate dough for 15-30 minutes. 

11 minutes. Allow to cool slightly on baking sheet then transfer to cooling rack.




Verdict: delicious! This is my new go-to cookie recipe. I still cried, but at least I had cookies.


ps: isn’t my new cake stand the cutest? $15 at Homesense! 

pps: yes, I totally haashtagged the  Jimmy & JT cookie exchange from the #hashtag video. I mostly made cookies cause I was sad, but also a little cause I wanted to blog a cookie recipe with the hashtags. Like a millennial. (hashtag imawesome)
