Makes 8 LARGE Cookies
Oof. It's been a crazy couple of days. I'm sure we have many more to come.
Whilst these next few months - and probably years for some people - are going to be tough, I am going to make as much content as I can to lift your spirits. I'll be going out to the shops as everyone else is and shopping from what's actually still in the aisles so hopefully everyone will be able to make some delicious #isolationrecipes alongside me.
I know it's going to be tough, but for those of you who want to learn a new skill - COOKING!!!! - I'm here for you. I'm mulling over some ideas of how I could bring little cooking tip videos or something as well, so stay tuned.
Remember, for a lot of us, the worst we will experience is boredom and a little loss in cash flow. You may never get time like this again to work on that something, read that something, write that something, play that something, or COOK that something. So take this opportunity and grasp it.
Also - use your privilege to help others as well as yourself. Let's do this! Let's start with cookies!
The dough may need some elbow work as you add in the flour - don't be afraid to use your hands. The dough shouldn't be sticky or wet
USE ANY NUTS YOU WANT. OR ANY CHIPS YOU WANT - PEANUT BUTTER? Carrrramel??? Go crazy, it's your cookie
You can turn these into little drop cookies by taking a heaped teaspoon size and rolling them into balls
Weigh your cookies before baking them to make sure they are even
