Because I must have done something wrong in a past life, my child is an incredibly light sleeper. It’s a curse, I tell you. So I try to avoid all recipes that say ‘cream butter and sugar’ for fear of waking up the child. Do you know how hard it is to find a good chocolate chip cookie recipe that doesn't require the creaming of butter and sugar? Apparently it is the key to a good batch of cookie-roos. It was quite the quest, but in the end google came through and made my life a happier place.What this happy mama discovered is that you can get virtually the same results by heating the butter and sugar on the stove instead of creaming. Maybe everyone knows about this, I don’t know. But I sure didn't and to say I was thrilled is an understatement. I was christmas day type excited. A noiseless solution = Genius.
So today I made noiseless gooey, delicious, chocolate chip cookies. A veritable baker’s delight.
