The couple that bakes together stays together

I’m still putting the finishing touches on our San Francisco trip video, but in the meantime…

Sean’s out of town this evening through late tomorrow evening for work.  He emailed me mid-afternoon yesterday suggesting we do something together since he’ll be gone.  He biked to work so asked me if I would pick up a few things for our project.  He sent me this very specific list and as soon as I saw the Crisco I knew we were making chocolate chip cookies.

This is Sean’s favorite preparation of chocolate chip cookies.  Sean made these on a very early date.  All I could think was, really, Crisco?  I’m not even sure I’d had anything with Crisco in it before he made these cookies for me.

This is Sean proclaiming to me that Crisco is great.  I don’t remember loving these cookies the last time.  Sean said it was because we were too new in our relationship and I didn’t trust him yet.  I think it was just idea of Crisco.

We had a fun time making these together.  I like to bake more than to cook because baking is so specific.  I am someone who scoops the flour into the measuring cup and then levels it off.  I was happy Sean let me handle the flour and that he observed this rule himself with the salt and baking soda.

Having only seen the ingredient list initially I was shocked this recipe only called for half the bag of chocolate chips.  Turns out you only need half the bag if you’re including nuts.  We didn’t so the whole thing went in!

I got out my cookie dough scoop and made these very happy, perfectly shaped cookies.  I was so proud!  Sometimes the dough doesn’t cooperate and the cookies don’t come out so perfectly shaped even with the scoop.

Sean was happy enough to eat a few of my smaller sized cookies but before all the dough was gone he requested to make a batch of his own.

I think he may have actually called these man sized cookies.

I have to admit these are very good cookies.  I’m not sure what my problem was the last time but these are great and I would make them with you anytime, Favorite!
