Cookies 3 ways ~~

It’s not hot this weekend! We even had rain this morning! Pretty nice change of pace! So, since it wasn’t hot, I made cookies! Been a while … Like 6 or 7 months lol ūüôā

Everything I need (minus the oven, the pans, the cooling racks)

I like to use the Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe. I think, next time, I’ll switch to a different recipe. I just can’t keep these cold enough so that they don’t spread out while cooking. Maybe I need to add more flour/sugar instead? We’ll see when I make Halloween cookies in two weeks.

Best snack ever =)

The best part of making cookies, and one of the main reasons I do, is because of this stage^^. The Sugar + Butter is the best! ¬†Tastes so yummy! ¬†It’s so bad for me though … because I ate this junk I only allowed myself 2 cookies, had to compensate =p

It has eggs now!

Here the dough is ready to go! ¬†All of the ingredients have been added except the extras – chocolate chips, white candy melts, and nuts ~~ And, since I’m doing three kinds-ish of cookies, here is where I separated the dough =)

Pouring is an imprecise science =p

I think the recipe calls for an insane amount of chocolate chips, I just poured some into the bowl till is seemed right =) ¬†This batch will be for my Dad since my husband and I aren’t too big on the chocolate chips. We’re going through a white chocolate phase right now …

And we mix mix mix mix …

I’m not very picky about making them into pretty little balls before baking, doesn’t seem to make too big of a difference any how!

Second Batch~~ ¬†This one is just white “chocolate” melts, though I will be including a few Oreo cookies!! ~

Wish they were shaped more like Hershy kisses =)

Batch Three~~ Each batch was cooked separately. Partly because I only have 2 full sized cookie sheets and partly because everything not near the top of my oven just burns … It doesn’t even cook just chars itself … If we ever re-do the kitchen, a new oven is for sure on the list!

Pictured below is white “chocolate” melts and Pecan pieces! =) Ate one of these with my breakfast this morning, definitely worth it! =)

Batch 3 all mixed up, the nuts are the little brown spots

I mixed up batches 2 and 3 while batch 1 cooked. Then I just rotated the cookies from the oven to the cooling rack to the Halloween plate … over and over =)

I put the same amount of dough on the Oreos ... they get covered =)

Between batches I kept putting the cookie dough back into the fridge. A 350¬į oven does heat up my kitchen quite thoroughly!

I basically forgot about batch 3 in the oven … The first two batches are the chewy kind of cookies … The last batch is the crunchy kind of cookie! ¬†Thankfully I like both types!

Dollar Store plates are the best and they have them for every season!

Gonna take a picture here so they look pretty together, then put them in Zip-lock bags and off into the fridge they go! ¬†Even though it isn’t hot out, I don’t want cookies on the counter. If Penny or Lucy ate them, it wouldn’t be good!

Cookies 3 ways!

With the weather being raining today, maybe I’ll bake some more! As long as I can think of someone who wants to eat it all for me … =)
