My Bake of the Week

It’s getting to where about once a week I start feeling the need to nibble.  And what better to nibble on than homemade goodies?

So this week, I remembered to take some pictures for ya’ll, and wanted to share the baking experience.

Here’s the link to the chocolate chip cookie recipe I found on Pinterest – oh, chocolate chip cookies!

Whisking up a batch of cookies while listening to saxophone quartets – an ideal afternoon.  By the way, if you haven’t heard of them, look up the San Francisco Saxophone Quartet.  They are ASTOUNDING!  And just fun to listen to!

Here’s my baking partner – isn’t she cute?  She also looks hungry 🙂

 

Well, I got started right away – beating the butter and sugars with the cute Kitchen Aid mixer a friend of mine bought me a few years ago for my birthday.  And may I just say, it was a fabulous gift!

I added eggs, vanilla, baking soda, and flour – and was about to add the salt when I started thinking – why does Morton salt have a girl with an umbrella on the front?

Maybe, the rain is supposed to represent her salty tears of sorrow?

 

Anyway, if you figure it out, let me know!

 

Of course, because I was too lazy to go to the store, there were no chocolate chips for these chocolate chip cookies, but – gasp!- I made the cookies anyway.  We had half a box of semisweet baker’s chocolate squares, so I just cut that up into little cubes and shreds of chocolate, and dipped the cookie dough balls into it:

I ran out of chocolate, but Mom had the brilliant idea to make a kind of thumbprint cookie, by squishing a nice indentation in the cookie dough and filling my thumbprint with apricot preserves.

Oh, happy days!

 

So in the end, I had some cookies!  They aren’t exactly magazine worthy – that is, they weren’t much to look at – but boy, did they satisfy my sugar craving!  Something about chocolate chip cookies – they never get old!
