Last week while in Lima, I made some beautiful chocolate chip oatmeal cookies for the host fam while I had access to a nice oven and real measuring tools in the big city. They didn't believe me when I said I made them myself, so I got stubborn and took Piere to the market to buy ingredients and do it again. Trouble is, I don't have measuring spoons/ cups here and our cookies were not so beautiful. But we had fun in the process :)
Step 1- Guess on the ingredients. This will involve improvising, eyeballing, and wishing you could call Elaine Nigon.
Step 2- Let Piere take awful pictures of you. It's only fair for the amount I take of him.
Step 3- Make your own chocolate chips! Adults handle the knife, children wash their hands and break apart the Triangulo bar.
Step 4- Form dough balls. Try not to eat dough. Remind yourself not to traumatize Piere the way Bridget traumatized me as a child by telling me that the dough you eat explodes inside your tummy. Hahaha.
Step 5- Wait.
Step 6- Keep waiting.
Step 7- Entertain yourselves while you wait.
Step 9- Remove cookies from oven and enjoy! Then answer to everyone why they look like pancakes and promise to try again next weekend...
