Happy Wednesday all, I have a exciting and
revolutionary (FUN?) idea for my readers today!
COOKIES! nom nom
Ok, so cookies are not exactly revolutionary, but they are exciting and fun! and yummy. Since we are without water at the moment, thank you Polar Vortex, I decided to make cookies. Then I decided to see if I could make them with the least amount of dirty dishes, so here goes.
First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees and be thankful the power is on!
Then gather your ingredients
For our chocolate chip cookies, I used a DIY dry mix that I found here http://fakeitfrugal.blogspot.com/2012/02/fake-betty-crocker-cookie-mixes.html. Check it out, she has several of these DIY mixes that are great, and cheap! Add 1 egg, 1 teaspoon of vanilla and a stick of butter. In my effort to minimize dishes, I placed my stick of butter in a 1 cup glass measuring cup, covered it with its own wrapper and microwaved until soft.
when that is done, pour the butter into the bag with your egg and vanilla. I usually don’t measure vanilla, just pour a little in, one less dish!
Now, seal the bag, pressing out most of the air, and mush it all together.
Next, I wanted one big cookie, so I sprayed my pan, and snipped off the corner of the bag and squeezed it in. There is enough to make two 8 in round cookies. I did one then the other to save on dishes. If you want regular cookies, line your pan with parchment paper and just squeeze out a small dollop.
Now, slide it in the oven for about 23 minutes and enjoy the smell of hot cookies.
Because of our no water issue, a feverish 5 year old, and two other needy little boys, I didn’t snap a picture of the actual cookie. But it was delicious!
