Usually I am a planner. I love knowing what is going to happen and being prepared is great. But, it isn't so true when it comes to me baking. I mean, I don't plan when my sweet tooth is going to start yelling. It has a mind all of it's own.
So, when the sweet tooth does start up, I need something to calm it down. And nothing irritates me more than finding a recipe where you need to have room temperature butter when I am wanting to make it on the spot.
Sure, I know I can put it in the microwave and HOPE that I don't leave it too long. But, I am not talented like that.
That is one of the reasons I love the recipe I found to make chocolate chip cookies. Not only are they great. But, they don't use room temperature butter. The recipe calls for melted butter! Now that is something I can handle since that is probably what the butter I put in the microwave to soften will become.
I made some of these bad boys today because I got this really cute cookie jar Sunday and I wanted to put it to use.
So go make some for your cookie jar.
