You sometimes fill me with misery. I must break up with you. It’s you, It’s not me. And I say that with all dignity I can muster up after an unhappy (disastrous) project. Many such projects if I had kept a count. So as beautiful as you look, and as enticing as you are – It’s over between us. Yes, you have been very useful when I have tried to look for inspiration and most of the projects have turned out ok. But it’s the projects that look nothing like you showed that hurt the most. And for those I can’t forgive you.
I have much to thank you for. Take for example all the time you make vanish because I am checking things that I, in my wildest dreams would not even think of undertaking – like building the fish aquarium from scratch. Or the times when I think I can finally undertake the DIY projects in my bathroom because you make them look and sound fabulously easy. Sadly the husband always says No and I am left dreaming And then I am on to make some more time vanish with you. Really! It’s like magic.
But you have given me a lot more grief than you will ever care to acknowledge. Take for example these chocolate chip cookie bowls. They were supposed to look like this! See this? That’s how they were supposed to look.
But instead looked like this:-
What do you have to say for yourself? I am ending this right now. It’s over between you and me!
And while you are at it, do tell people that this project is not really worth the time, though it tastes good. Also tell them that If they have a willing teenage helper who wants to really bake the cups, go ahead. Otherwise, they should just make some chocolate chip cookies and fill in some ice cream into them and call it an ice-cream sandwich. They will thank you and not break up with you. I am saving you some heart ache.
Oh I am adding this disaster to your boards. After all YOU did make me make these. And good bye!
Oh yes, before the final Good Bye – be sure to tell people to check how awesome cookies with ice-cream ACTUALLY look like – Here is a list for your kind information!

I was supposed to send my chocolate chip cookie cups to this event:-
The theme this month is Ice Cream Cookies–any kind of cookie that works well with ice cream in any form–could be an ice cream sandwich, could be the perfect cookie garnish! If you are dying to beat the heat with a fun ice cream creation involving cookies, we’ve got you covered! If you are a blogger and want to join in the fun, contact Laura at thespicedlife AT gmail DOT com and she will get you added to our Facebook group, where we discuss our cookies and share links. Please be patient though, as this month Laura is off to Italy and will not be checking email quite as often!
You can also just use us as a great resource for cookie recipes–be sure to check out our Pinterest Board and our monthly posts (you can find all of them at The Spiced Life). You will be able to find them the first Tuesday after the 15th of each month!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Bowls
- 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
- 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray the reverse side of a mini bundt pan (the outside) with a pan spray.
- In medium bowl, combine flour and salt. In large bowl, beat butter and sugar with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and the vanilla extract. Add flour mixture to butter mixture and mix it until combined.
- Roll out dough on generously-floured surface to 1/8 in. thickness. Cut 4-1/2 in. circles from dough.. Drape each circle over each of the reverse side of the bundt pan, pressing to form smooth surface.
- Bake 12 minutes or until cookie cups are firm and golden brown. Cool on pan on cooling rack 10 minutes. Loosen bottom edges of cookies from pan using small spatula. Carefully remove cups from pan and cool completely. Wash, dry and spray pan; repeat with remaining dough.
