Day 17 and Chocolate Chip Cookies

Posted on

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


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1-3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons instant espresso coffee powder
  • 1-1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Directions

    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.
    2 dozen cookies


    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.

    1. Great way to use what you’ve got! Those look so delicious. I’ve made that recipe before but my cookies didn’t look like that…you’re really good!
