This week I remembered why I don’t bake.
But I don’t remember until after I said: HEY KIDS! LET’S MAKE COOKIES!
It was out of a box so I thought: How hard can it be?
We only had egg whites. We didn’t have frosting. And the dough was so sticky my daughter couldn’t use her fingers for thirty minutes.
And after five of those minutes, my kids were ready to do something else.
Or just eat raw cookie dough.
So here are my under-cooked, taste-less cookies.
But I want to eat cookies! Probably with my kids but with enough left over to eat while they sleep. And I’d like to bake them because it makes me feel all awesome and productive. Or at least I think it will since I’ve never actually done it without a box.
So I ask: How do I bake easy, tasty cookies?
FYI: No chocolate (that isn’t white). Also, no vegetables. I’m looking at you carrot cake.
