Tonight I made cookies! These were not terrible impressive and definitely not creative. As part of my job, we often give home-made treats to our volunteers and fund-raisers, including local fire-fighters, which is who these particular cookies were for. I just ran to the store, bought some semi-sweet chips and made the recipe on the back of the bag.
I had to keep stopping myself from eating the dough. It’s been so long since I’ve baked anything with eggs and real butter that when these initially came out of the oven, I asked Brent if they looked strange to him. I ate 2 of them, and they were pretty good, definitely sweeter and richer tasting than the ones I’ve made recently.
Brent teasing the dogs, as he has long been known to do:
And for your viewing pleasure… a totally gratuitous picture of Lucy running around the backyard, posted just because I think she’s cute and looks a lot more playful than she normally is.
Hopefully I’ll have something more creative to bake later this week. I want to make something lemony, and I have my rye sourdough starter fermenting, just waiting to be put to good use this weekend. Stay tuned to see how that goes!
