Kitchen Stories- Chocolate Chip Cookies

by she said

We have been without house help since the start of summer until today, and doing housework makes my mom a hothead. She's always on my case about keeping my room clean and a whole bunch of other stuff. This whole week, she's been snapping at me for even the littlest things. 

Mom, please relax. Stress is bad for your health. It's okay for the house to be little bit messy, which goes the same for my room : )

It's finally the weekend! I had such a tiring week filled with projects and long tests and I've been so sleep deprived. School, why???

Then last night, in an angry tone, my mom says: "Set your alarm for 8am, we're baking cookies tomorrow!"

She is so strange.

 My mom loves hanging out at grocery stores. She found some Ghirardelli Cookie Mix during our recent trip to SM Aura and I couldn't be happier when she put it in the cart. I literally thought it was the apocalypse because she never buys these kinds of things!!! We could make cookies from scratch but this mix makes everything so much easier.

 All you have to do is add a stick of butter and one egg to the mix and you're good to go. We just used a wire whisk and a spatula to combine everything together. My mom is very happy, less utensils and dishes to wash.

 Form the dough into 1 teaspoon sized balls and place 2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet. You can actually make bigger cookies but since we were using a small toaster oven, we had to make smaller ones.

 We were able to make 30 or so cookies. I kinda lost count because I kept eating them fresh out of the oven.

 Perfectly crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside. So, so good with a glass of cold milk.

 I think I will name these cookies my Mom's Reconciliation Cookies ʕ•̫͡•ʔ♡ʕ•̫͡•ʔ

Hi, mama! Since you're not mad at me anymore, can we go shopping tomorrow? Peace.

  4. Wow! this is perfect! how much did you spend for everything? I wanna make this one too! good for giveaways!!

  5. Hi Toni! Cookies were wiped out by Sunday. They're so good!

  6. Hi there,cheekeegirl! The cookie mix was around P220. Try to check out S & R in Davao if they have this. Might be cheaper to buy in bulk. Be sure to let us know if you do get to try it : )

  7. Hi there :) how long is your baking time if it is in the oven toaster? thanks!

  8. Hi! About 9-10 minutes, until the edges turn slightly brown. We were going for crisp with chewy center. Problem is we can't find anymore of these Ghirardelli Cookie Mix in the supermarket. If you find some, please let us know : )
