Happy National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day, all. What a great day designation. Maybe I’ll have to make a batch. Of course, just last night my 7yo and I whipped up a batch of chocolate chip pumpkin cookies. I know it’s not autumn, but pumpkin cookies are so easy that they’re always in season around here. Oh, and the whole batch is “taberaretchatta“–or, “completely and unfortunately eaten,” as they say in Japan. I love that there’s a single word for that situation. It comes up around here a lot.
Like the batch of Double Chocolate Chip cookies we made on Sunday afternoon. Taberaretchatta. (Pronounced: Tah-bay-rahr-ay-cha-tah.) Oh, and it doesn’t even need a subject line, as a passive verb. Imagine this scenario: mom comes into the room full of kids. “Where’s the rest of the chocolate cake?” They look up and shrug. “Taberaretchatta.” It was completely and unfortunately eaten. Nobody has to take the rap.
Here’s the recipe for EASY pumpkin cookies:
1 box spice cake mix
1 15 oz can pumpkin
1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips (minis are even better)
Combine all ingredients. Drop on pan. Bake 18 minutes at 400 degrees.
Here’s the recipe for EASY double chocolate chip cookies:
1 box brownie mix
1 cube butter
1 bag chocolate chips
Combine all ingredients. Drop on pan. Bake 14 minutes at 320 degrees.
Come on, folks. It’s National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day. Celebrate! Completely and unfortunately eat all of these!
