Many things are happening this week. From the awfully hot weather to the absence of the public transportation that takes me to work. If you’re living in the Bay Area, you might have experienced the same ‘no Bart’ issues these days. Sadly, my 1-hour commuting time turned into a long 2.5-hours on Monday mornings. Luckily, I am able to work from home on Tuesdays and Wednesdays; unlike my friend, who lives nearby from us, about 10 minutes away. He managed to get to work by bus on Monday after 2 hours and 15 minutes on the road, but the next day, his commuting time increased to 3 hours and 5 minutes. Note that according to the GPD/Google maps, the journey from his home to his office was supposed to only take 30 minutes by car. So, yeah, it has been a super tiring week… all the more reason to have cookies!
After almost 5 hours spent on the road, I did not think I had enough energy to do some baking. So, I opened up my recipe book and thought of having no baked cookies that night. This recipe is very easy to follow and will not generate any mess in the kitchen. So, if you’re rushing for sugar, check this out.
