The Utter Need To Do Something!

Have you ever woken up with the feel and drive to do something that you have not done happily in a while? This morning for the first time in over a year I woke up with the feeling of want and need to bake. Not because I had to because I could get snacks at the store down the road but because I had the feeling to create and bake. This to me is a huge step in the right direction for me and I am so happy that I woke up feeling this way. Because I feel happy and less anxious than I have been. However, it scares me a bit as well because I do not want to lose this amazing feeling today. My sister-in-law Pam used to joke with me that I should open a food truck and serve nothing but cookies and coffee... To be honest I often contemplated if I could do it. Could I make a passion of mine into a viable business? But for now, I will just be the crazy cookie lady at home!

*note because I am always asked* the top of the cookies are not made with a special tool or anything I use a mini ice cream scoop to measure my cookie dough so that all my cookies come out the same size. When you do as much baking as I do it comes in handy. I have gotten my last 3 off amazon and here is the affiliate link to it HERE. I like it because it's durable and cheap but my kids like to break them in hard as rock icecream or accidentally throw them out! Joys of having teens.

So "Happy" is the word of the day today and happy I will be!  I hope you all have an amazing Sunday with family and friends or just curling up with a good book.

Blessings and Love to you all!

PS. I couldn't say I baked and not add the recipe. This recipe is for a double batch of chocolate sugar cookies.


Chocolate Sugar Cookies

5 1/2 Cups Flour
2 Teaspoons Baking Soda
1/2  teaspoon salt
2  Cups Butter
3 Cups Sugar
2 Eggs
3 Teaspoons Vanilla
(Buy it in bulk like I do makes it easier when needing it later also its cheaper this way.)
1/4 cup sugar to roll cookies

Mix all Ingredients together and set aside in fridge 10 min. I always use cooking spray on my pans. Scoop out cookies to the desired size! Cook at 350 degrees for 11-12 minutes.  

Ok, everyone, all ovens are different I use a Kenmore gas stove/ovens and my cookies stay in 11 minutes. Electric ovens and convection ovens will take a longer or shorter time. Learn about your oven so you know how well it bakes.
