Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Do you ever have those days where you feel engulfed by an irrational depression? Nothing is wrong, but you find yourself looking at your life from a weird angle, and all of a sudden, you feel out of place. I'm totally there today. There's no reason for it. I haven't gotten laid off or anything, but I just feel off. All of a sudden the job I enjoy feels like a dead end. I don't make enough money. I'm not doing a good enough job self promoting, I need to be networking in the blogosphere more. Wah wah. Shut up!

I'm in a slump and I just want to not think about anything for a little while. So, I'm not going to. What am I going to do? Well, not to be too typically girly (something I usually avoid like the plague...does this show how low I've stooped?) but, I am totally going to eat a whole batch of chocolate chip cookie dough. Thats right, I am abandoning the Forkables for a spoonful of raw, sweet chewy dough. I don't care.

OK, I just ate a small bowl of dough. It was good, but now I'm totally feeling sick to my stomach. I think I might puke. I guess I'll just make the rest of this dough into cookies. I can eat them later.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
care of the Joy of Cooking
  • 1/2 c. butter
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 c. + 2 Tbs flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  1. Cream butter and sugar using mixer.
  2. Add egg and vanilla
  3. Mix dry ingredients
  4. Mix together
  5. Eat raw dough until you can't take it anymore and want to throw up.
  6. Bake the rest of the dough at 350 for 8 to 10 minutes or until bottoms are golden brown
You can skip step 5 if you want.

Tip: If the bottoms are golden brown but the tops are super raw (raw is good: means chewy, but super raw isn't that awesome) flip the cookies over and put them back in the oven for 1 minute to cook the tops a little more. You end up with flat top cookies but thats OK. Its not a beauty pageant. You should see what these guys look like when you get done eating them. Its not pretty.

sometimes i make a big batch of dough just to keep on hand when i need to make cookies in a pinch. the bad thing about this is the fact that there is a big batch of cookie dough in my fridge and i have no choice but to eat some every time i open the fridge. terrible.

If you have an interest in selling cookies or cookie dough for a fundraiser there is a website called Easy Fundraising Ideas that has about 10 different Cookie Dough Fundraising programs and they don't cost anything to start.
