Quarantine Baking

Since we are all practicing social distancing and self-isolation, many people are cooking more and more at home. Sure,  restaurants are still open for delivery, but often they are SO busy it is hard to place an order. I personally am using this time to practice my cooking skills.

One of my favorite things to bake is cookies. For some reason, I just find it relaxing. I start by creaming one stick of room temperature butter with one egg, a dash of vanilla, and some white and brown sugar. I can’t really tell you how much as I add in the ingredients as I go- maybe around 2/3 brown and 1/3 white. After I get it creamed together, I mix around 1 and a 1/2 cups of sifted flour with a bit of baking soda and salt mixed in. Once I get it mixed, I add in goodies. Sometimes I used chocolate chips, sometimes butterscotch…. Sometimes I even like to mix in sprinkles. Either way, they always turn out delicious. I’m sure my husband and daughter are happy to eat them.

What is your favorite thing to cook during this pandemic?
