No matter what day (or what time for that matter) making a batch of chocolate chip cookies can make me feel better. By now I should have the recipe memorized, but it’s too easy to get lazy and just read it off the back of the package, also it's really easy to half make up after the ingredients are gathered.
There are a number of things I love about these cookies:
- They don’t require extraneous ingredients, so you can make them almost all the time! (Just double check the status of the chocolate chips, they tend to run out fast.)
- If I feel adventurous I can add nuts, or change up the type of chips, i.e. peanut butter or white chocolate rather than semi-sweet.
- They are no brainers, (though I have been known to mess up a few batches in my time) so I can multitask. I can whip up a batch and gossip, or dance a little. They are perfect for when friends come over-expected or no.
