I made some cupcakes last week to celebrate the last day of school and the last day of our Alexander Technique teacher, the amazing Penny O'Connor. They went over very well but left me with about half a tub of buttermilk in the fridge with absolutely no purpose. Realizing it was about to go off I decided to spend my Friday night in baking cookies with it and watching Inside Amy Schumer. I found a recipe that consisted of mainly things I already had that didn't seem like a lot of work which after a day of dress shopping on the dreaded Oxford Street and a trip to the gym was all I could muster. These are amazingly gooey and chewy and fudgey and chocolatey and all the things a cookie should be and I just ate three.
