The Perfect Slice and Bake

I love baking.

If you haven’t figured that out by now, I have no idea what you’re doing when you visit my blog.

Now, I’d love to say that I normally don’t bake the same thing twice and am always experimenting and trying out new recipes.

But then I’d be lying.

And that would be obnoxious.

“What do I bake the most” I’m sure you’re anxiously wondering, you inquisitive reader, you.

Chocolate chip cookies.

Simple and classic. But I have a secret.

Every so often I crave slice and bake. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a firm believer that there is nothing in this world that’s comparable to fresh from the oven, made from scratch chocolate chip cookies but slice and bake make me so nostalgic.

They bring me back to being a kid and visiting a friend’s house, the mom throwing a batch in the oven for a quick and easy snack then served with a cold glass of milk and a side of raw cookie dough.

It’s comforting and reassuring – the food equivalent of reading Harry Potter.

While the only effort that really goes into making them is to not eat all the cookie dough ahead of time, I do have a secret for the perfect slice and bake.

Ignore what the instructions say for time. Pop them in at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

They’ll come out perfectly cooked and taste homemade but don’t worry, it’ll be our little secret.

Just don’t forget your glass of milk.

Cookies this good deserve a cheers!
