Murphy's law of baking ...

You'll make a promise, during coolish, rainy weather that seems to be hanging on forever, to bake cookies. The day that the baking will be done (I made up dough for molasses cookies yesterday that had to chill overnight) will be warm, bordering on hot, and sunny and SOOOOOO pleasant to have the oven on during.

I have, however persevered, and have one large batch of double chocolate chip cookies and about a zillion molasses cookies baked; ingredients are standing by for another batch of the chocolate chip, but I need the butter to soften up a little more before it'll cream properly (which means the oven and I can cool down for a little while).

On the plus side, my apartment sure smells GOOD! :p
