This week got away from me. Between our dishwasher drama, picking out the right one, and then spending about three hours entertaining the plumber while he was installing it, I'm ready for the weekend. But, I had made a promise earlier in the week, and I wasn't going to let the day end without making things right.
We got an amazing deal on our new dishwasher thanks to some awesome guys that work at our local OSH. I promised I was going to bring them cookies because they were so wonderful while trying to hook me up with the dishwasher I wanted at the right price while maintaining composure while my tot screamed, "NOnooooonononNONONONOOOOOO."
Even enticing her with shiny light up buttons on the washing machines didn't help.
But these guys kept their cool, and even after we made the initial purchase and they discovered we could get the dishwasher for less, our guy called us up and told us to come back in. Yeah, that's right. He called us, re-did the whole transaction, and ended up saving us another $100.
They deserve some cookies.
I had some tasty fixings for cookies and came up with something totally yummy.
Chocolate chip marshmallow cookies.
1/2 c soft butter
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 t vanilla
3/4 c sugar
2 Tbsp brown sugar
Dash cinnamon and salt
1/2 t baking soda
1 1/2 c flour
1 bag chocolate chips
1/2 c chopped marshmallows
How to make the goodies
Start by creaming the soft butter and the sugars with a hand mixer. I used salted butter, but if you aren't just make sure to add 1/4 teaspoon of salt to your mix. Once the sugars and butters are blended nice and smooth, mix in the vanilla, dash of cinnamon and salt, and the egg, too. Preheat your oven to 375 F so it's ready to get baking when you are.
Now sprinkle the baking soda over the batter and begin adding the flour 1/2 cup at a time until the flour has been worked in. Go ahead and mix in the chocolate chips and the chopped marshmallows. Dicing up marshmallows gets a bit sticky, but it's totally worth it. Really.
Pop spoonfuls of the cookie dough on a parchment lined sheet pan and place in your hot oven. Set the timer for 12 minutes and walk away.
When that timer dings, you'll have some ooooey-goooooey cookies! Let them rest on the sheet pan before moving to ensure they are set. Sure, some of that marshmallow has leaked out and gotten all toasty, but the result is absolutely fantastic.
