My daughter made cookies today. She is learning to bake on her own so she made a single batch.
I can't remember the last time I only made a single batch of cookies. I've ALWAYS doubled the recipes, and would triple or quadruple them if we planned on sharing with anyone outside of the family.
As small as the batch looked - finishing up with 24 cookies cooling on two racks - I realized I was really okay with that little batch. That's plenty for us. We'll have a nice little home baked treat to last a couple of days and that will be all we need for now.
This, my friends, is when you know things are really changing deep down inside. It's a good sign when the overriding feelings in this situation are contentment and enjoyment instead of sadness and greed.
It's a non-scale victory to be sure and I'm so pleased with this progress.
p.s. This was her third attempt and they came out perfect. I shared a small one with her to make sure. :)
