I’ve been struggling with depression lately which has involved a lot of wandering aimlessly around the kitchen late at night.
I knew I wanted something snacky and sweet but didn’t want to get into anything too involved and inspiration hit though when I remembered my go-to cookie recipe as a kid.
These were the cookies I would make while home alone which devolved into me eating just the dough, and then into not even finishing the dough and eating just the butter/sugar mix. #thisiswhyimfat
I had forgotten just how easy and simple these were to make – this whole cookbook is geared towards children so it’s to be expected – but seriously easy.
Even though I accidentally added to much sugar they still turned out delicious and exactly what I needed.
*Fun Fact: When she was 10-13ish, only 1 out of every 5 batches of sugar cookie dough would make it past the butter/sugar stage and end up in the oven instead of Brie’s stomach. #ThisIsWhyI’mFat
P.S. She also set the microwave on fire during the same era while making home-made microwavable popcorn. Pro tip: Alton Brown is WRONG and you cannot put a paper bag with staples into the microwave; things will go badly.
P.P.S Happy ending. Even though to put out the fire she threw a bowl of water onto it and shorted all the circuits, the microwave started working after a week and her mom was non-the-wiser.
P.P.P.S But, I guess not any longer…
