Well, it looks like I survived the surgery. It has been 5 days and I am still slightly swollen. I haven’t gotten back to eating normally yet and am still seeking out soft foods (hello, white chicken chili!). I also have two giant bruises on either side of my face, but that’s actually been pretty fun. Anytime we are in public, I just point at Jorge behind his back and make a sad face. (Kidding, just kidding.)
On Saturday, I was starting to go crazy. I wanted something to eat that wasn’t in the form of soup or mush, but still soft enough that it wouldn’t hurt too badly to try to chew. I had already spent hours of drugged up couch time perusing pinterest and saw these amazing looking cookies on Sally’s Baking Addiction. So with Jorge’s help, off to the stand mixer I went.
Oh and by the way, I wouldn’t recommend pinterest-ing while on pain pills. You will be CONVINCED you can make all of the DIY stuff just as good as anyone else. You will pin DIY beds, farmhouse tables and even repainting your washer and dryer in mint green. It’s not true — you aren’t that talented. And you don’t even own a saw.
The original recipe calls for room temperature eggs, putting the dough in the fridge before baking and a few other odds and ends. I am not that fussy with cookies (unless they are macarons) and I’m happy to report they didn’t need any special treatment!
They turned out perfectly soft and full of delicious sugar cookie flavor. If you aren’t a sprinkle fangirl like me, feel free to leave them out. I will of course judge you, but your cookies will be just as tasty. 🙂
By the way, this will be the 57th cookie recipe that I have blogged. Whoa.
