Day 17: A picture of someone that has made a huge impact on your life recently.
To be honest, I don’t have a photo to share for this entry. I haven’t spent enough time with anyone lately. Therefore no one has been able to make a huge impact on me.
So, instead of sharing a photo, I will share a recipe. I don’t have much food in the house right now and I didn’t feel like going to the store after work. I wanted to bake something but I had limited supplies. I found a recipe for chocolate chip cookies that only needed one egg and one stick of butter.
Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
|1.||Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Cream the butter with the sugars using an electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy (approximately 30 seconds)|
|2.||Beat in the egg and the vanilla extract for another 30 seconds.|
|3.||In a mixing bowl, sift together the dry ingredients and beat into the butter mixture at low speed for about 15 seconds. Stir in the espresso coffee powder and chocolate chips.|
|4.||Using a 1 ounce scoop or a 2 tablespoon measure, drop cookie dough onto a greased cookie sheet about 3 inches apart. Gently press down on the dough with the back of a spoon to spread out into a 2 inch circle. Bake for about 20 minutes or until nicely browned around the edges. Bake a little longer for a crispier cookie.|

|This is the actual recipe but I only had mini semi-sweet chocolate chips and no espresso. They still tasted good and it fixed my craving.|
