Oh I am just so domestic now...

Since  I've been home, I've been baking an awful lot of cookies.  I don't know if it's the whole idea that I'm someone's mom now (still a scary thought) and therefore I should bake cookies, or if it's just the fact that I'm home all day and rarely have two hands free to eat.

The chocolate chip cookie recipe that I use is awesome.  They come out chewy and amazing.  That's also probably why I bake them so often - they get eaten insanely quickly.

Here's the recipe if anyone is looking to bake some cookies!  Thanks to my mom for giving me the recipe!

Cowboy Cookies

- 1 cup butter
- 2 cups flour
- 2 cups oats
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup white sugar (side note - whenever I get to this part, I sing the recipe in my head to the tune of the "Backin' Up" song.  Instead of "One with a white hoodie, one with a black hoodie" I sing "one cup of brown sugar, one cup of white sugar...brown sugar, white sugar, white sugar, brown sugar."  Yeah, I'm awesome."
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp vanilla (I play it pretty fast and loose with the vanilla - I love vanilla)
- 1 cup chocolate chips (I always use milk chocolate chocolate chips.  Anything else just won't do)

Mix ingredients together, put on a baking sheet in balls.  You know the drill.  Bake them at 350 for 8-12 minutes.  I set my oven timer at 8 minutes and usually take them out just a little bit before the time is up.  You want them to look a little doughy in the middle still and just golden brown around the edges.

I usually get just under 3 dozen cookies out of this recipe.  You could probably get at least 3 dozen if you didn't eat as much cookie dough as I do.

(And in case you had no idea what I was talking about, here's the Backing Up video)
