Everything is better with Chocolate Chip Cookies

When life gets you down, bake.  Ok, so that's probably not the best motto, it should probably be something like, when life gets you down, go exercise.  Whatever.  I enjoy baking a shite ton more than I enjoy exercising.  Life's been... stressful lately.  I tried a new cookie recipe yesterday.

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies:

2 sticks salted butter, slightly softened
2 eggs
1tsp baking soda dissolved in 1tbs warm water
1c w sugar
1c b sugar
2c all purpose flour
1.25c old fashion rolled oats, whole not ground
2c mini chocolate chips (my preference, you can use whatever kind you want.  I think the little ones work best)

Mix the eggs and butter well, add the dissolved baking soda.  Add the sugar a little at a time.  Same with the flour and the oat meal.  Add the chocolate chips at the end.  Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.  I got exactly 4 dozen medium sized cookies out of this recipe.  

I won't lie, these were a-fucking-mazing.  I'm not usually a huge fan of chocolate chip cookies, and mine don't often turn out as well as I would like.  Something about this was just perfect though.  Maybe it's the dissolved baking soda, or all the oatmeal, or using mini chips instead of regular sized ones.  This was cookie nirvana.
