Homemade Cookies.. yum

This week I decided to compare homemade cookies to store bought Publix cookies.

My friend makes these soft chewy cookies. The chocolate melts in your mouth and makes you feel like your mom made them.

The recipe for these cookies: 

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons hot water
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

 

Compared to Publix Cookies: 

  • Wheat
  • Milk 
  • Soy 
  • Eggs

 

I’m sure that the Publix ones are cheaper, but I want a good homemade chocolate chip cookie. 

In store bought cookies the salt and chemical preservatives are extremely noticeable.

In homemade cookies the taste is better and they are preserved without chemicals.

Homemade cookies bring happiness and emotions that store bought ones can’t.
