Chocolate Chip Cookies

I mentioned before that the last couple two weeks were pretty busy/stressful with work for me. Three video projects all due within a day of each other, never fun. With video work you always have a fair amount of downtime when a video is rendering, which is usually just enough time for me to whip something yummy up. I always find myself doing a little baking to help relieve the stress, it's my go to stress reliever. And I think Will enjoyes all the benefits from my stress cooking hehe. So onto the recipe.

I adapted these cookies from this recipe.

Ingredients
• 2 1/4 cups flour
• 1/2 tsp backing soda
• 2 sticks unsalted butter (1 cup) room temp (I think the next batch I will try it with just one stick)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
• 1/2 brown sugar
• 1 tsp salt
• 2 tsp vanilla
• 2 large eggs
• 2 cups (or really as many as you would like) semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Mix together flower and baking soda. In a mixer add butter with the sugars and mix until light and fluffy on medium speed. Change speed to low and add salt, vanilla, and eggs, beat until well mixed. Add in flower mixture until combined, then stir in chocolate chips.

Scoop dough onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake for about 15 minutes (all ovens are different so you will want to check the cookies at around 8-10 minutes).

Let cool just slightly and enjoy with some cold milk or almond milk!
Also can I just say how much I love my Meeko cup! I am such a sucker for these cups that they used to sell with kids meals at fast food places when we were little. Anytime I ever hit up a thrift store I always go to the glassware section to see if they have any, they just make me happy. 

What are some of the things you guys do to help when you are stressed?

Hope everyone is having a nice Wednesday!

  1. I smiled so wide when I saw your Disney cup! I have such fond memories of my Lion King ware... will definitely have to start scouring the thrift stores :-)

    These cookies look great. My new favorite de-stress activities include making cheese and crackers (and olives!) and reading old magazines.

    Best,

    1. The Disney glasses seriously were the best! As a kid I would refuse to drink out of any other glass haha! Best of luck with your thrift store search!

  2. I cook and bake at least one homemade thing a day because it is a total stress reliever for me. After a long day at the playground with my son I love to get in the kitchen to unwind when he naps. I also love feeding people so this is perfect.

  4. When I'm super stressed out and need to slow my brain down, I work out, hard. It's the only thing I've found that allows me to shut off my brain completely, stop worrying (I'm a constant worrier) and focus entirely on something else. And I always feel a whole lot better afterwards.

    If I need to think something through, baking is where it's at! Also, now I want cookies.

    1. I wish I did that, I am the worst when it comes to working out especially when stressed. Sorry for creating the cookie cravings, hopefully you find some yummy ones to help quench it.
