You all know I’m not a baker and might be surprised by this post. Don’t be. I had very little to do with these cookies. Just added a stick of butter and an egg to a gloriously yummy Ghirardelli Triple Chocolate cookie mix. A fabulous Costco find.
I’m taking these to work as a “Thank You” to a co-worker who let me use his parking space for a whole week while he was on vacation. You see, I typically take a bus to work because it’s so expensive to park downtown as well as a hassle looking for free parking. And free isn’t always free, such as when you get a parking ticket. 😦
So for a whole week, I had the pleasure of driving to work headache free because I knew I could park in a specific spot and I would not get a ticket. I love piece of mind. And I want to be able to do it again, the next time he goes on vacation or isn’t using his parking spot.It was also a good excuse to practice macro photography. Doesn’t this cookie look like a smooshed face? I see it. The chocolate eyes, the upturned nose from the tip of the chocolate chip, the mouth from the crease in the dough…. see it now? So cute. I just had to have it. And a few of his buddies…. I promise, the rest go to work. Tomorrow. See the butter melting in one of the cookies? At the bottom of the cookie ball? This really does use a whole stick of butter. What can I substitute instead? But for about 2 dozen, one stick doesn’t sound too bad. Does it?
