Friday night boredom = cookies

Sunday, June 8, 2008

So . . . Friday night Tony worked on the basement, while I, well, I didn't have much to do . . . so I decided to bake cookies!

After pooling my ingredients though I realized I didn't have what would really amount to a recipe, so I improvised.

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups cocoa pebbles cereal
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips

In large bowl, cream butter or margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; beat until well blended. Add flour, salt, and baking soda, mixing well. Stir in cereal and chips.
Drop by heaping tablespoon onto greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 12-15 minutes, until lightly browned. Remove cookies to cool on racks.

Of course even with the improvisation it couldn't go smoothly:

Seriously, how does that even happen? Lol. The bowl was part of a 3 piece set we received as a wedding present, even though they were not on our registry. They have grown on me though, so I am saddened by the loss.

Ah, bummer. So you never said if the cookies were good or not! The ingredients sounded yummy!

I have no idea how it happened, but it saddens me.

The cookies ended up alright, my brother and hubby loved them . . . I think they should be tried again. Our oven SUCKS!
