So have you ever been baking something and suddenly REALLY wanted it to be something else? Well for many of you this probably never happens, because I know the larger percentage of my readers are my family members who don’t bake… but for my bakers out there, maybe you know what I mean! You might be making a friend’s birthday cake or a special occasion dessert and suddenly you really really really want chocolate chip cookie dough? That’s exactly what happened to me. I was working on the dessert bars for the quilt retreat next weekend (making Samoa bars… post coming soon!) and I just needed cookie dough. So I pulled out the trusty bag of milk chocolate chips and 1/4th the cookie recipe. Mostly because I was afraid I might eat it all.
Let me tell ya, making 1/4 of the recipe was super quick, and I just decided to divide the batter into two heart shaped molds and pop them in the oven for a warm cookie ice cream dessert for me & my dad. (and my mom had a bite or two too). So basically I’m super full now, but it was majorly worth it. That is what they call a well-spent day off 🙂
