In keeping with my new domestic identity, I baked some cookies from scratch for Saturday's birthday bash.
red beans and rice and yellow cake, Allrecipes.com.
- 1 cup butter (I used margarine, sorry!)
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 2/3 cups baking cocoa (I went with Hershey's)
- 3/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- confectioner's sugar
|I liked the marbled effect of the mixed ingredients.|
Oh, yeah. A few people asked me what these were called, and I lamely replied, "umm, chocolate cookies?" So I could definitely use some suggestions for a name so I can avoid feeling like an imbecile next time I make them. I thought "brownie batter cookies" would make sense, since (ha ha) they do taste like brownies, but I feel like I've heard that name before somewhere.
What do you think? Do you measure out teaspoons and tablespoons, or do you eyeball it like me? Do you make a wreck of your kitchen every time you bake? Do you enjoy the dough more than the finished product? Can you tell me how to get just a little powdered sugar out of the giant bag? Most importantly, do you have a name for these beauties?
