The Lazy Millennials Cookie Recipe

Picture this, its a lazy (read: seedy) Sunday afternoon and dying for a snack! Just something small to tide you over until dinner, because, lets face it mum would be mad if you didn't eat her cooking while still living under her roof.

You check the cupboard, but there's nothing but tin food and stale peanuts. You're feeling chocolate chip cookies, so you sigh and decide to bake some.

Now if you're anything like me, you don't really want to spend more than 20 minutes tops baking.

Well, here's an easy peasy, super simple and quick cookie recipe for you!!

* This recipe will make approx. 40 cookies
- halve the recipe if you can't be bothered separating the mixture 40 times/ waiting for 40 cookies to bake!

Here's what you'll need
- 1 cup of softened butter
- 3/4 cup of sugar (I use castor sugar)
- 3/4 cup of packet brown sugar
- 1 tsp of vanilla essence
- 2 eggs
- 2 1/4 cups of flour
- 1 tsp of baking soda
- 1/2 tsp of salt
- chocolate chips (the more the better!)

Here's what to do

1. Preheat the over to 200 degrees Celsius.

2. Cream the butter, both sugars and vanilla together (use an electric mixer unless you want to spend an our on this step!).

3. Beat the eggs into the mixture.

4. In a seperate bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda and salt. Gradually add this to the butter mixture and beat together (take your time with this step! Trust me, if you add it all at once it'll go everywhere when you turn the mixer on and you'll spend forever cleaning it up!).

5. Stir in the chocolate chips, the more you add, the more chocolatey deliciousness!

6. Drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto a greased or paper lined tray. Don't stress too much about the size, just make sure they're spread out - you don't want to spend time cutting cookies apart!

7. Bake for approximately 10 minutes or until lightly brown.

8. Allow to cool for a few minutes, or until you're just so damn hungry and tired of waiting you don't care anymore!
9. Don't forget to taste test along the way! Seriously, I end up eating half my mixture before the cookies even make it into the over! Oops!!

So there you have it, that's my easy peasy, lazy millennials cookie recipe!

You can add anything else you want to make the cookies super yummy, marshmallows, m&m's, the choices are endless. Just don't spend too much time deciding, you have plenty of doing nothing to get back to you lazy millennial you!

And remember, it doesn't matter what the cookies look like, just what they taste like!

So, tell me, what's your favourite lazy day recipe or go to snack!?

Hello! and welcome to my blog!!

If you're reading this, then chances are you're a millennial just like myself. If you're not, don't worry! You're still welcome here. In fact, this blog is here for anyone who is willing to read and listen along. Whether you're feeling my pain when it comes to the rising cost of living, or you simply don't understand why millennials complain so much. Whether this blog will make you laugh, cry or sigh, this blog is for each and every one of you to enjoy!

I always find the introduction to any piece of writing the hardest. So I've been sat here at my kitchen table with my homemade pasta and green tea (complete with hipster tea cup) for over an hour trying to figure out what to write for this post. But hey, at least I haven't left to clean the whole house in procrastination like I would a uni assignment!

I suppose I should probably use this post to explain what this blog will be all about!
This blog will contain my ramblings, frustrations and joys in life as a millennial in our modern society. I'll discuss my diet and sustainability practices, the impact of technology on my life, the constant struggle of choosing between a smashed avo brunch and being able to afford a house, and, of course, how it feels to be an entitled, easily offended snowflake.

So sit back, relax and enjoy as I lay my life out on the web!
