Oh, hello again, lovely people.
It’s been ages since I last posted, but I’ve been insanely busy lately! I’m just wrapping up another semester at school, got a promotion at my job, and moved. Life is hectic but thankfully it’s almost summertime, MY FAVORITE.
And hopefully yours, too.
The new job I’ve been doing is really neat, it allows me to meet new people on a daily basis! I’ve decided I’m going to start baking for my colleagues and clients to be extra friendly and to share my sweet tooth. It’s much better to share a batch of cookies than to eat the whole damn thing myself (however, this would be much more enjoyable for me). Slaving over the oven for an hour is only worth it if you can eat everything afterwards.
I accidentally made four dozen so sharing was necessary.
I’ve probably eaten a dozen on my own though…
Oops… sorry, not sorry.
Going on a tangent here– I just bought a plane ticket to go to England this summer for my best friends’ wedding! I’m super stoked and I can’t wait to see what kinds of pastries people love over there and how to make them. It’s so precious– her father is baking their wedding cake!
Okay, back to these cookies. My coworkers drooled over them all day today, and I hope you do too!
Note to self… I need ideas for new things to make that are share-able.
**Again, this is a recipe that you don’t need eggs to produce, which is great. They can also be adjusted into vegan cookies by using a dairy-free butter substitute and milk quite easily.
Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies
takes about an hour, makes two dozen cookies
2/3 cup butter, softened (or a vegan butter alternative)
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons of milk (or a dairy-free milk of your choice)
1 2/3 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 cup chocolate chips (or vegan alternative chocolate chips)
[The recipe can easily be vegan (and still be delicious) by replacing the butter, milk & chocolate chips with vegan substitutes in the same quantity!]
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Mix the butter and sugar in a second, larger bowl until creamy. Add the vanilla and milk. Slowly mix in the dry ingredients until the dough is all the same consistency, then add the chocolate chips.
Roll the dough into balls (about the size of a tablespoon) and place at least two inches apart on cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 13 minutes and allow to cool before removing from the cookie sheet and stuffing them in your face.
Enjoy the classic goodness! 🙂
