If you follow me on Instagram, you know yesterday was my birthday ( << such a Gemini, right?! ).
So in true birthday fashion I whipped up my favorite treat: super simple chocolate chip cookies.
And for the record I’m a picky bitch when it comes to my chocolate chip cookies.
AKA a total Gemini.
Gemini’s are the sign of the twins, so typically they want what they can’t have but when they have what they want, they’re looking for the next thing.
So anyway when it comes to chocolate chip cookies I like them crunchy but I also like them chewy. I like them warm but I like them the next day too…so basically I’m just really confused.
This recipe put all my cookie concerns to rest.
First things first, make sure you use an ice cream scoop to make your dough balls. You want them to be perf & an ice cream scoop really does the trick.
Next, store your dough for 24-48 hour before you bake. So don’t make your dough the day of & throw it in the oven— be patient.
Seriously though, patience is what makes the perfect chocolate chip cookie.
Ok so let’s talk about Lauren Conrad.
If you don’t know who she is then clearly you were sleeping all of 2007/8/9. I mean, come on! Hello! She was on a little show called The Hills. She’s the girl that everyone said was the ‘prettiest crier ever.’ I can vividly remember where I was circa 2009 when Heidi & Lauren’s friendship ended. It was so traumatizing, OMG.
Anyway, this is LC’s recipe but naturally I took her recipe & modified it.
For example I used dark chocolate chips instead of semi sweet ( more antioxidants in dark, der! ). I also used light brown sugar instead of dark, because dark brown sugar is nasty in my book ( it’s way too overwhelming ). & lastly, I cut the sea salt in half. I’ve never been a salt fan ( unless we’re talking about Flaming Hot Cheetos. Their salty, spicy goodness gets me every time!! FML. ). So basically this is a skinnier version of L.Conrad’s sea salt chocolate chip cookies.
Ok, so what’s your favorite b-day treat? xx. le
