On Sunday I decided I definitely needed cookies. And I didn't just need any cookie, I needed them to be fresh out of the oven, and have chocolate chips and fudge pieces in them. Thus, I would have to bake them myself. But, it was already 3.30pm and there wouldn't be a ton of time before dinner to get some baking in, and so - I am not ashamed to admit - I cheated, and bought a Betty Crocker choc chip cookie mix (the type you just add water to and then stir into a dough).
Maybe this isn't the way a woman in her midtwenties should be getting her bake on, but, my track record with putting my all into baking a recipe from scratch isn't great; a lot of baked goods created with my two hands end up over cooked, not cooked enough, or just plain wrong (the last time I baked cookies they came out as scones), and I'm glad I played it quick, easy and safe this time!
They were delicious though, and the extra chocolate chips and fudge pieces I added to the dough made the cookies even more yummy! My dog definitely thought that if he sat nicely enough he would get to try one, but unfortunately these were for humans only, so he got a dog biscuit instead, which I'm pretty sure he enjoyed!
