I made some extra cookie dough for the freezer today. I pre-scooped them into cookies so they are ready to go. We sometimes have trouble with frozen cookie dough staying really gooey in the middle, so I tried flattening them a bit, to see if that helps them bake better. We’ll see if it works next time we have a cookie emergency!
I ended up taking a little hiatus from making sourdough bread. I’ve been working on feeding my starter to make it happy again. This is my first successful little loaf in a while, and it was sooo good. We tried this recipe, which was enough resting and rising time to give a good sourdough taste, but it was low maintenance enough that we didn’t need to check on it all day.
Are these not the most adorable cookies you have ever seen? I took a picture of these before they went in the oven just in case something terrible happened in there, but thank goodness, they came out looking just as good. And they are even fully edible! Although I don’t know how you could eat one, instead of just filling your pockets with them.
There is always such drama when baking a new recipe. Is the bottom getting too done? Is the top done enough? Are they going to dry out if I leave them in longer? Luckily, this drama had a happy ending. I used this recipe, except I added mini chocolate chips instead, for cuteness.
We spent a lazy Sunday afternoon watching The Jinx and eating cookies. We had to watch all the episodes at once, so thank goodness I already had some slice and bake cookies in the freezer. All we had to do was heat up the oven, slice some dough, and 10 minutes later, shove cookies in our mouths.
We used a variation of this recipe, except walnuts and chocolate chips instead, and no coffee or nutella. We might make it a priority to always have some cookies ready in the freezer from now on.
The weekend always deserves cookies, and thankfully, we still have a couple to get us through the week. These cookies are chewy and spicy and the perfect way to end a long day, or way to make it through the afternoon after waking up at dark o’clock in the morning.
