I’ve mentioned my son Greg who attends UT in Austin before. Greg just turned 21 and has lived with three other boys his age for 2 years now. Greg often calls for meal directions and where to find things in the grocery store. One of his roommates loves mint chocolate chip ice cream and Greg found a recipe for mint chocolate chip cookies for him. Greg called and told me the boys decided to make these cookies while watching football on Sunday.
Greg called me on Monday and said the cookies were good but he was surprised how much butter was needed. He thought the batter was too soft.
“How much butter did the recipe ask for? What were the ingredients?” I asked.
“One stick of butter, one egg, sugar cookie mix, mint chocolate chips and regular chocolate chips.” He answered.
Makes sense to me. Then I thought for a minute.
“Greg, did you use a sugar cookie mix or did you use prepared sugar cookie dough?”
“The kind in the tube that is sold by the butter at the store, why?” he wondered.
We both started laughing at the same time as we realized he mixed an egg and stick of butter in refrigerated cookie dough. Greg said they were good and the boys ate them all. Maybe he’s on to something.
