Cookies Make It Better

By Andee Zeigler, September 1, 2020

When I am stressed I bake, when my clients are stressed I drop off treats, it’s a win win!

This is my go to chocolate chip cookie recipe, because cookies really do make it better.

What you need:

1 cup soft butter

1 cup brown sugar

3/4 cup granulated sugar

2 room temp eggs

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda2 cups flour

1 bag good chocolate chips (treat yourself, get the fancy kind!)

In mixing bowl, either standing mixer or hand mixer, quickly whip the butter, add both sugars a bit at a time.

**The key to thin chewy cookies is to not over mix them, so just a quick mix to incorporate each ingredient.

Add eggs, vanilla, salt and baking soda (quick mix)

Add flour in 4 scoops, mixing between each (can you tell I feel strongly about how to mix these cookies :))

Once flour is incorporated turn mixer on medium and add the chocolate chips and mix for roughly 10 seconds.

Bake in preheated oven at 350 for 11-14 min.

 

ps the first bite is always the best one

I have called Portland home for over 20 years and can’t imagine raising my babies anywhere else. I have been a REALTOR® for over a decade and still wake up every day delighted that I truly love what I do. I love helping people find their home sweet home, score an investment property that pencils out better than expected, holding the hand of a first-time homebuyer, or guiding a nervous seller through the process of leaving a home they’ve loved. I know Portland like the back of my hand and have a wealth of knowledge about our unique homes and rapidly growing inventory of new construction. I have loved up many homes over the years, from a total restoration of an 1894 Victorian farmhouse to a full remodel of 1942 ranch and several in between. I enjoy educating my clients on the home buying and selling process as well as educating them on how to care for their home. I strive to help buyers understand their homes' unique qualities, how to love them up, and the realities of vintage homeownership. Each real estate transaction is different and for many people the entire process is new and can feel overwhelming. I work hard to help clients manage expectations and give them perspective along the way. I also truly love negotiating and believe it can be done with grace and cooperation. Over the years many of my clients have become my friends and I am grateful for the joy this career has brought me. When I am not scouring the new listings, meeting clients for pie or reading up on all things real estate, I am busy filling my days with goodness. I currently live in my dream home in St. Johns with my husband, 3 kids, 2 cats, 2 ducks and goose! I am an avid gardener, growing over 30 varieties of fruits and vegetables and countless plants and flowers, including nearly 1000 tulips and over 100 dahlia varieties. During the spring and summer we have a little free table with bouquets and plant starts for our community. When the garden doesn’t need me you can find me in the kitchen. I try to bake once a day, everything from sourdough to french macarons. I graduated with an art degree and find great joy in painting and making pottery, there is almost always an art project happening at the dining room table. I am a dedicated traveler and have made exploring the world with my babies a priority. When we aren’t traveling internationally we explore our corner of the world in our Vanagon, Dr. Coffey! I am in constant awe of the beauty of the PNW and feel grateful that this is my home sweet home. I absolutely believe that everyone should love where they live and won’t let anyone settle!
