It’s official. I’m a mother. As of last night I fully embraced the over committed parent thing and remembered (7ish) that I was supposed to make cookies for the school bake sale. Crap. How did I forget that? Why did I volunteer in the first place? It sounded like a good idea way back in August, but today, not so much. I panicked a little when I realised we had no baking powder, but I managed to cobble something together using baking mix that had leavening in it already. The resulting cookies were quite good, if not super delicious, and at least my contribution will make it to the school today. Besides, the bake sale patrons will never know that I jacked up the recipe. Shh! Don’ tell.
What? You want to know what I made?
Brownie Roll Out Cookies from Smitten Kitchen (her photo, not mine). I adore these cookies. They are simple, delicious, and forgiving enough to let you substitute baking mix for half of the flour. Toss in some mini chocolate chips… heaven.
