I really love the act of cookie baking - sometimes even more than the cookie eating.
Perhaps it's because I have an aversion to drinking milk and let's face it - milk is an integral part of the cookie eating experience.
Or maybe it's the mental calorie calculation that goes on in my head that stops me from eating too many cookies. It's a constant battle between: yes, it's worth it and I'll squeeze in extra workout time tomorrow and no, I think I'd rather sleep an extra 15 minutes instead of doing hundreds of sit ups.
There are days though that reason is thrown out the window and I become a cookie eating machine. Baking any cookie with dark chocolate is especially dangerous. (Even without the tall glass of milk.) I can eat an entire batch of warm chocolate chip cookies so quick it would put even cookie monster to shame.
When you bake as many cookies as I do though, being a cookie baker instead of a cookie consumer is essential. I do love the process of cookie baking and I really don't want to have to up-size my entire wardrobe so I will stick to being the baker. (Most of the time.)
These chocolate chocolate chip cookies from mybakingaddiction.com are great for both cookie bakers and consumers. They are fun to make and delicious to eat. (Yes, I tried one.)

It makes me so happy to be able to share my cookies with other people. I am very fortunate to be able to bake cookies for so many people and I it brings me joy to know that their are other people who benefit from my cookie baking as well.
