So I haven't updated in awhile because I've been battling a bout of bronchitis for a week and finally got the gumption to go to the doctor. That was a lot of alliteration; I'm immensely proud. (And awesome assonance!) Anywho, I haven't really cooked anything new or different as a result. Also, no one cares whether or not I update because no one reads this.
So the only really "new" thing that I've attempted of late was a chocolate chip cookie recipe that I stole from Chris which was modified with complaints. I baked them three times over the summer, with varying results. I guess I bake best unwatched. Or something.
2c + 2 tbs. flour
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
12 tbs. butter, softened
1 c packed brown sugar
1/2 c granulated sugar
1 large egg + 1 yolk
2 tsp. vanilla extract
lots of chocolate chips
Set oven to 325 F, grease baking pans (or be lazy and use parchment paper)
Whisk together flour, salt, and baking soda. In a separate bowl, combine brown sugar, granulated sugar, and butter until creamy. Beat eggs and add vanilla. Add mixture to the sugarbutter and then add in dry ingredients in parts. Add in chocolate chips.
Take 1/4c of the dough and roll into a ball. Rip the ball in half and smash the two smooth ends together. It should look like the world's saddest snowman.
Bake for 15-18 minutes, until the bottom is golden brown and the tops still look like they need a little more time. You can rotate in the middle of the bake time, but this is for people who aren't lazy.
So I was studying for the GRE with Colby and mostly felt completely inept, so we decided that it was cookie time. We made a half batch (which was hard with the eggs...), but they turned out to be pretty decent and I foisted them upon my physics friends.
