Let's talk about what stirs your pot.
What stirs your pot? What rattles your cage? What kills your buzz? What annoys you? (An endless array of idioms may be???)
For me, movies like 'Nights in Rodanthe' - they made me all excited with Richard Gere and Diane Lane... and then when I finally got around to seeing it? Zip. Nothing. Nada. What about rain on the day you planned a beach picnic - grrrrrrrr~!!!!! Talk to any Aucklander and they'll know what I'm talking about. How about when people cancel on you when you've been looking forward to seeing them all week. Bastards! >:-[
I'm not trying to entice you to the dark side of negativity, I'm just trying to transition into talking about my cookies. My chocolate chip cookies...... :)
I had one of those days. Y'know, one of those days when you need someone, something, some song to make you feel better? Well, I was having one of those days so, I decided to bake me some chocolate chip cookies. I have about a million chocolate chip cookie recipes and, yes, I do plan to try aaaall of'em. But that wasn't the day to trial a recipe. No. I wanted a foolproof recipe that would sweeten up my cloudy day. So, I used the best chocolate chip cookie recipe that I know - The Nestle Tollhouse recipe. Yea Yea Yeah~~~ baby~~~
Can anything go wrong when you've got chocolate chip cookies? I don't think so~ :)
BTW, the myth about chilling the dough? Not a myth. I believe in it. Use these chocolate chip cookies to try this out and you'll know what I mean. I put'em in the fridge overnight. You can freeze the dough, too. Just transfer them to the fridge a few hours before you plan to bake them. They'll be as crispy as fresh bed of autumn leaves and goo-hoo-hooey on the inside. Enjoy. :)
