Celebration Cookies

I didn't need to go for the surgery! I guess the first obgyn I consulted was probably slightly "unethical" because he kept insisting that I remove the cyst. I was all prepared for it and went to the Johor Specialist Hospital early that morning. Upon speaking to this other obgyn, and after the ultrasound and examinations, he concluded that the laproscopy what not necessary at this point in time. Doc said it poses no harm to me now, and told me to monitor it for the next couple of months and to do another ultrasound either in December or January.

You could imagine how glad I was! No surgery means not having to put up a night at the hospital! No surgery means I don't have to worry about the healing process that will take a couple of weeks! And I can go back to KL and be back to work after the Raya holidays! Amazing.

I celebrated by baking chocolate chip cookies.. and the whole kitchen smelled wonderful.

260g butter
145g brown sugar
145g white sugar
1 pinch of salt
1 large egg
520g plain flour
2 teaspoon cream of soda
335g chocolate chips

1. Mix ingredients in a bowl.
2. Refigerate dough for 30 minutes
3. Using hands, compress into balls and flatten on greased tray.
4. Bake at 120 degrees for 20 minutes.

This recipe makes about 100 pieces. And it's simple! Oooh.. when nmixing, try to just use a spatula to mix it in a large mixing bowl manually instead of using an electric mixer. Mixing it manually makes it crumbly, so the cookies are actually crunchy when it's done.
