I’m a Cookie Virgin!

with one comment

I have never baked cookies before. There, I said it.

Although, I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t considered it. There’s something warm and inviting about the smell of bubbling vanilla and doughy bits of heaven all merging together and creating little discs of golden-brown, speckled with the tiniest chunks of melt-in-your-mouth mud-coloured chocolate.

I tried my hand at baking chocolate chip cookies today. It was all fun and games until the oven took over. There was crunchy chestnut on one side, and a gooey, stubborn mess on the other. I did what I could to salvage the cookie-shaped massacre.

And, these are the survivors of the kitchen disaster.

I must admit though, in spite of everything I put them through, they came out delicious. Maybe they’ll have something to talk about on the leather couch after all.
