Cookies + Washi Tape

Cookies.  I wanted to do something nice, and at the same time be in the flow.  I would like to get lost in an activity.  I have decided to bake chocolate chip cookies that my husband could bring to his colleagues this morning. That's it.  I remember, it always cheers me up when someone comes to my desk in the office, offering chocolates,  especially when a hot freshly brewed coffee is sitting peacefully beside the computer.   Yesterday afternoon  filled the kitchen with aroma of chocolate and cookie dough.


With all the posts of washi tape on Pinterest, it got me intrigued.  So I went to Daiso Store and found some washi fabric tape.  A Japanese value for money concept store filled with hard to find items that start with Dhs 6 less than $2.  

After :

Chocolate Chip Cookies
Medium Sized Scoops- 80 cookies


1 1/2 cups unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups white sugar
3/4 cups packed brown sugar
4 eggs
3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup rolled oats
2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon  lemon juice
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts

1. Cream butter in a large bowl.  Add both sugars and beat on medium for 2 minutes.  Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each condition. Add lemon juice and vanilla, mix well

2.In  a separate bowl, stir together dry ingredients. Add to creamed mixture and stir well to blend.  Add chips and nuts, stir until evenly distributed.

3.  Drop 1 1/2 table spoon or a medium sized OXO Good grips cookie scoop on parchment lined baking pans 2 to 3 inches apart.  Bake at 350 degrees F  (175 degrees C) for 13-15 minutes or until lightly browned around the edges.  Cool; remove paper and cool completely on wire racks.

The cookie yields to roughly around 2 3/4 inch diameter.

I'm now returning back to my easel.
Happy baking to you all!
Have a fun Tuesday!
