“Herein is some kind of attempt at making chocolate chip cookies. I don't know what it'll taste like at the time of this writing as they are baking currently. 5/23/2018 End result: The end result is they became strange giant cookies. Still edible but were halfway between cookie and cupcake.”
1 12 cookies this time

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. So sift all your dry ingredients using a fine mesh strainer into a giant bowl (except chocolate chips).
  2. Put SOFTENED butter and eggs along with vanilla extract into the same bowl.
  3. Use your hands to combine if you're like me, or use some kind of machine whisk until it's a stiff dough
  4. Roll into logs and place in fridge to harden (10 minutes).
  5. Cut into cookie size pieces (I don't even know if I did spacing well on that one - we'll find out together!).
  6. Eat some of the cookie dough (optional) - then realize it might not be as sugary as other cookies and feel a little uneasy.
  7. Drop one of the cookie doughs on the ground, dust it off and put it back on the tray.
  8. Place in oven - and if you're like me and forgot to pre-heat it, just put it in anyways as you set it to 375F and let it begin to heat up.
  9. Periodically look back every five minutes or so until it starts looking like you're getting to the point of your average chocolate chip cookie - hope for golden brown, and a delicious center of wonder and magic.
  10. Things to note: I sifted everything that was a solid, save the pinches of salt and baking soda. I'm at sea level basically and the temp is around 70F at midnight in May.
