Got cookies?

I do!

I decided today that I wanted to bake some cookies after work. When I got home, I turned on the oven and popped in the Twilight DVD so that I could fully engage in self-indulgence...baking on a weeknight and watching a cheesy romantic vampire movie.

It was wonderful.

I made two different kinds of cookies: chocolate chip-walnut (these always seem to get snatched up at parties, and they are one of Dad's favorites) and oatmeal-raisin (Travis loves these) Did you know that a batch of chocolate chip-walnut dough makes six dozen cookies? That's SEVENTY TWO cookies, people. I made the oatmeal-raisin dough while I was transferring the chocolate chip-walnut batches in and out of the oven, then refrigerated it for a while. The oatmeal-raisin dough made five dozen cookies...for you math majors out there, this means that I have a total of 132 cookies at my house. Well, 130. I ate one of each. :)

Hope Travis likes them!
