Well, it’s officially January 16th. I gave the whole no sugar thing a serious run for 15 whole days. And now, I’m giving in. I mean what’s life without a little sugary indulgence every once in a while? So I decided to go big with my first bite of sugar in 2013 and whipped out the Salted Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies. Ya. They rocked.
I mean, chocolate chip cookies are already pretty awesome as is, but when you add browned butter with a sprinkle of fancy salt and make Salted Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies, I mean what else can you really ask for in life?
There are a few things that are certain when I make cookies. Chocolate Chip cookies especially, and please tell me I’m not alone in the following…
1 – I usually end up eating at least 1 full cup worth of cookie dough. Why is it that the dough is just so freaking good? I just throw a solid piece of cookie dough on a spoon and go to town. I can’t be stopped.
2- Fresh cookies out of the oven need to be eaten immediately and the gooey chocolate chips wind up all over my face, hair and clothing. No? This doesn’t happen to you? I don’t understand.
3- The few cookies that survive the “just outta the oven phase” wind up in my freezer because that’s the safe place to store them. If they are in the fridge then I see them all too often and they are gone within 3 seconds. But in the freezer you sometimes forget they are there. And then when a sugar craving comes on, you reach in, grab a cookie (or 4 if your name is Gaby) and zap them in the microwave for a hot few seconds and then they are melty and delicious all over again.
These are all totally normal right?
So I guess the moral of the story is that we all need some Salted Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies in our lives and we’ll just eat a big salad then next day for lunch.
