Cookies in My Kitchen

I thought I'd bake cookies today (Sunday) to give the men in my life some cheer. Yes, the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, they say.

My cookies came out too soft--like cake. I have just found this fascinating article on how to make chocolate chip cookies come out EXACTLY how you want them to. Check it out.

I'm happy that...so far...the cookies are perking everyone one up. Better moods already!

As I am baking, I look through the kitchen window and see my neighbor's home next door. Jean passed away about a month ago, at the age of 85. Her 2 daughters are sifting through their mother's things, and boxing up belongings. It seemed like it would be a good thing to bring them cookies. As I stepped over there, another neighbor man, Felix, stepped out of the garage. He is over to lend a helping hand. Now they are all eating cookies.

Back to the kitchen. I still have a big bowl of dough to bake.

There's just something about homebaked cookies... yum... I can smell them from here!

My sister has the choc. chip thing down to an art. One of her tricks I found out is to put the dough in the fridge and after chilled, she shapes the dough into small balls to put on the baking tray... I wind up eating way too much dough - yikes!

Now I better go read your trick of the trade, maybe it's the same? - LOL!

P.S. How great too that you shared the cookies. Little gestures of kindness mean so much:)
