We Have Baked Beautiful Cookies

Beautiful Cookies

Inspired by this Slate article and the discovery that I had both chocolate AND peanut butter chips in the cupboard, I baked cookies. Beautiful cookies. I need to keep the illusion of a perfect life alive!

Beautiful Cookies

These might seriously be the prettiest cookies I’ve ever made. Usually I’m too lazy/unwilling to sticky up my hands to roll little dough balls and just plop spoonfuls willy-nilly, which bake all deformed and ugly and usually end up sticking together. But NOT TODAY. Today I rolled the dough balls and spaced them out properly and even rotated my baking sheets. Add this to my recent spate of actually cooking dinner and I’m like a homemaking machine! Now if I could only do all this while keeping up with the laundry… Oh and I should have taking pictures while I was baking because I used my matching M-Cup Matroyshka measuring cups and M-Spoons Matryoshka measuring spoons, how whimsical and precious of me.

As usual I used the Olive Oil Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe from The Crepes of Wrath.

  3. I’m glad you like the olive oil cookies. I don’t think anybody would even notice there’s no butter in them unless you pointed it out.
