Honey You Baked #2

Last night I got the urge to, gasp, bake. 
It's kind of a big deal because such urges don't come about regularly in my life. 
(I blame it on Pinterest. I can't help but feel inspired to cook, bake, and create when I spend time on there)

Anyway, I found this recipe for chocolate chip cookies here and the end result was so so good.


Does anyone else feel guilty every time they stick of butter into a mixing bowl? I searched for recipes until I found one that only required 1 stick of butter, and not 2 or 3. Paula Deen would be so disappointed...






On an unrelated note, does anyone have a magical way of quickly softening butter?
I would love to find an easy way to speed up the process.

Have a great day
(I'm planning on heading to the beach today, not to rub it in or anything hehe)

xoxo,
Tamms

They look super good! I get that feeling to bake once in a while too.

I put the butter on top of the stove while the oven is heating up (if yours is connected)
Or I put it in the warm Microwave but now while its on.

Beach sounds amazing!

I want to do some baking soon! This looks yummy!

These look delicious! I do the same with the butter on the stove - or mush the large cube so it softens easier and put in the microwave for 15 seconds.

Happy Thursday!

Ahhh chocolate chip cookies are the best. To soften butter quicker I just throw it in the microwave for 15-30 seconds. :)

those cookies look amazing. and i get that same urge from pinterest - it's like 'i need to bake this, sew this, paint this, make this...' - maybe one day i'll actually accomplish all my 'pinterest wishes.'

those cookies look delicious! as for the butter, i usually leave it out at room temperature for a few hours or overnight if i have planned to make cookies, if i havent planned then i also do the whole placing it on the oven as it heats up or in the microwave.

Chocolate chip cookies are my favoriteeeeee, and you're making me drool.

Those look perfect! A good way to soften butter quickly without using the microwave because that can melt it, is to throw it in a ziplock bag and pound it. Then just flip the back inside out and voila!
