Home cookin': Chocolate chip cookies
To kick off my new toaster oven, Yuki and I decided to bake some cookies. It's basic but something so significant with it's simplicity. Just about everyone has baked cookies before, and everyone has happy memories with it. So tonight, we baked some dark chocolate chip cookies from scratch. I told her that in the states, we usually just buy cookie dough. Open the packaging, cut, and put it in the oven. Done. So convenient (and lazy)! haha! Although they came out kind of flat. They still tasted great! I probably used too warm of butter or whipped it too hard (too many bubbles mixed in). After making the house smell like fresh baked cookies and probably the whole condo complex, we watched a movie together with a plate of freshly baked cookies and a cup of tea. Such a great aroma and warming experience! Good night!
