Also known as the “I couldn’t even be bothered to made drop cookies” cookie. Also also known as the “I didn’t have a clean baking sheet that fit my oven and couldn’t even be bothered to wash one” cookie in some circles. Cookie Pie, if you’re nasty.
Do you want “simple”? Do you want “now”? This is not a new phenomenon chez Zylo. Especially now since, as you may not know, I started grad school! Yay! I’ve got quite a few things going on right now, with varying levels of success, and have been mostly subsisting on junk food again. Add to that the fact that my refrigerator is damp inside and it won’t keep food alive for shit and you have a lot of wasted good intentions (read: vegetables) and a heavy reliance on pre-packaged food (read: full of so many chemicals it will be fresh until Doom’s Day). So I feel wholly justified by making a pie of cookies because it was quick, easy, cheap, and practically chemical free compared to what I’ve been eating lately.
Have you noticed how I like to spin everything into “this is health food because” around here? This is a very accepting space.
This is actually the best soft chocolate chip cookie I’ve ever had. Since the butter is melted to begin with, the dough is very soft. If you want to make these into a drop cookie, be aware that they will spread and will probably end up much crispier. If you want a soft to the last bite bit of cookie heaven, break out grandma’s pie dish and save yourself the trouble.
