Chocolate Sugar Cookies-so simple yet so good!
Sometimes you just get in a mood. You want something. Something to nibble on. You look through all the cabinets. Nothing looks good. You stand in front of the refrigerator, with the door open. Letting all the cold air out, for at least 5 minutes. Still, nothing.
So you walk away. Still craving something, but you don’t know what. You don’t want chips, you don’t want to make a sandwich. The leftovers from the day before looked good but you’re saving them for dinner.
So you take out some butter but have no idea what you’ll make. You know all good things start with butter.
You go do some chores, maybe a little work. As a food blogger, you’ve learned to multi-task. You can edit photos in between loads of laundry.
You finally return to the kitchen to make something with the butter. You open your baking cabinet and it all just comes together.
