More cookies

With the new Doctor Who season on BBC America has started the flow of ample opportunities to make cookies. This all started when we decided on letting the boys invite a friend over to watch the show with them and we would have popcorn and they could enjoy the show with good company.

The problem? One of the friends was not a fan of popcorn. That is a problem in spite of the fact that we did manage to devour five bags of microwave popcorn that first night.

The solution? Cookies! I can make cookies. Everyone likes cookies. If they do not like cookies, they have not had my cookies. That is all I am going to say. Well, if they do not like cookies, they need to have their head examined because there is something seriously wrong with them.

I made about six dozen cookies the next week. Kyle helped. He has become quite handy in the kitchen.

We are on week number three tonight and I am sitting in the kitchen waiting for pan after pan to bake. This is my least favorite part, I must say. I am not a patient cook, unfortunately. So obnoxious, repetitive tasks like baking cookies are not my first choice. The dough is a piece of cake and something I’ve got down to a science, but the baking is just the mundane task that goes with the fun stuff. The pain that comes with pleasure?

Of course it is always amazing how a few ingredients become the dough that tastes good. In fact, it tastes so good I have to beat people off with a stick in order to have enough to bake.

Then that dough forms little balls of dough that some how spread out to become nicely shaped cookies. I can put them in the oven just like this. I was a little worried because the dough is still cold from being in the refrigerator as we went out to eat dinner with Sally tonight. I made the dough beforehand so that all I had to do was bake the cookies when we got back. I could bake even while watching the episode of Doctor Who so I was not too worried. Anyway, I normally do not bake my cookies from cold dough. I do not have dough long enough to put it in the refrigerator. If I do put it in the refrigerator, I do not have enough cookie dough to bake. I am not willing to take those chances as the odds are not in my favor usually, so I make the dough and bake it right away.

Still a few simple ingredients turn into something absolutely scrumptious, not too incredibly hard to make, but rather hard for most people to resist.
