There’s no doubt, no matter where you live, you’ve been impacted by the coronavirus recently. It’s on every news station, social media outlet, and seems to be in every conversation. It can be emotionally exhausting to read, see and be surrounded by everything 24/7, all while not being able to actually “go and do” our normal things. There are so many of us full of anxiety and worry- I would love to read below in the comments (judgement free!!), how you’re handling this? How can my family pray for you during this? I know I have readers from all over the world living with different, difficult situations- and I would love to specifically pray for you today. When all else fails and your anxiety gets the best of you remember Nahum 1:7
When things go haywire here in Missouri, what do I do? I bake! I’ve been baking a lot of things lately but let me tell you, these cookies have been my “Go To”- they’re so quick, easy and don’t take anything special! They come out perfect… every… single.. time….
So these came from my sister- apparently these are my brother in laws favorite cookies! I normally change up a few things to make a recipe mine” if I haven’t come up with it myself… take out some sugar, make a recipe a little healthier etc… but not this one. The only thing I substituted was gluten free all purpose flour. They’re so easy, and delicious, I can’t help but make them at least once a week while we’re staying home. (My waist line is not going to appreciate this!!)
I simply started by creaming the brown sugar, sugar and the butter/margarine. Then I add the eggs (one by one of course ;))
Once all that is incorporated, I add the dry ingredients and mix it in, and hand stir the chocolate chips in! That’s literally it. I put these bad boys in a 375° oven for 9 minutes, and they come out delicious. You could cook them a little longer if you like them a a little more “done”. We like ours a little gooey on the inside and crunchy on the outside!
Do you have a favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe!? This one has risen right to the top of favorites in our house and I see it staying there! Try it out! (And let me know below when you do!!)
