You'll have to excuse me - it's that time of the year (by this, I mean it's the time of the year that all my friends are already off from school and traipsing around the beach while I'm still a ways away from taking finals - the quarter system is a blessing and a curse). My posts will probably be sparse until I get out of school and move into the house I'll be subletting for summer vacation. You wouldn't know I was on break from the work schedule I've already devised for myself, but I will be getting a welcome break from those awful things known as "assignments" and "papers."
In the meantime, cookies!
I kind of went on a cookie-making binge recently - three batches in under a week! Each batch made at least two dozen cookies, if not more (like four dozen!)! Someone less consumed by
The third batch of cookies were a delightful little sugar cookie from Allrecipes. Once again, tiniest bit of baking soda (does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?), but once they set (and especially the next day, even after sitting out all night), they were wonderful. As per many readers' suggestion, pop them out of the oven before you think they're done - if you let them get golden, they'll get really tough after a few minutes. I didn't get any photos of them, but Peter told me they tasted like childhood, and that's good enough for me. Maybe good enough for you too?
I linked to both recipes above - pardon the laziness, but school calls! See you soon!
