Cookie Madness!

I had nothing to do today (again) so finally decided to bake some yummy chocolate chip cookies! was very enthusiastic..you know, to see my creation begin to take shape. i was so excited when i put the chocolate chips in the mixture...had a few like that (hehe). when i finally had to bake them the recipe said to put large spoonfuls of the dough and flatten a bit with a fork..so i put a huge dollop and flattened it with all my expertise...lo and behold when i put it in the oven it sort of melted because of the heat and turned into like this flat expanse of cookie that looked like a chocolate chip cake than chocolate chip cookies..i was like..oh shit what have i done..disaster! i thought to myself that i can throw away any aspirations of being a baker out the window! then i strated to panic when the sides were already brown but the middle wasn't...u could imagine the amount of thinking i put my brain to today (and this is amazing considering the lack of brain cells i have been using lately). and it was all soft. aren't cookies supposed to be hard? oh well..i thought my cookies looked like they were inedible so that really made my day.sob..

this was what the first batch looked like..





oh god it's all out of shape and looks like some omelette or something...im really really not an expert..so, with the experience of the first batch of cookies being way out of size and porportions, i became a little smarter and made the next batch much much smaller..







now this one looks more like delicious looking cookies! yummy!! not bad huh for the second attempt. sometimes i become like an 'over-perfectionist' so i didn't like it when the top wasnt brown enough so i put it in the oven toaster ( :-P) just to make it look that much better..did i cheat? oh well...but it tastes great! my sis was like waiting to devour it ( and i mean devour). and the advice i got from a 9 year old was "it has too much chocolate". that's funny considering she loves chocolate and she was the one who asked me to put that much of chocolate chips inside.. i guess we all just like to comment on something especially when that someone really didn't think she did well..that's my sis!

is making cookies really that tiring..cuz i was beat after cleaning up..i don't know how people can say they enjoy baking..it's hard work!

maybe i'll just visit the bakery next time..c ya!

the second batch looks really good! when you have done it 3 times, it really gets easier. I mostly read the recipe, and put all the ingred. on the counter. Then I take a break.
And when i feel like it, I'll make em. cheers, jeannette
