Monday October 4th will go down in history as the day Instagram and Facebook were down for 5+ hours. I have to admit that when I was just trying to post stories, I was like “what’s going on?” and then I thought, ok Instagram is down. No big deal. Then, I checked maybe 20 or 30 minutes later. After I checked the third time and it was still down, I just did my thing and felt liberated that I didn’t have to worry about posting or an algorithm.
If you use social media for your business, you know what I mean. You feel tied to it. You are on social media a lot. Lately, social media has been very draining and not as uplifting as it once used to be.
It’s interesting to see all the headlines about Facebook and Frances Haugen. If you don’t know who she is, click the link to read. It will be interesting to see how the senate hearing ends and if Facebook will have to change anything.
We all know how damaging and toxic social media can be. It can also be positive and informative and that’s what I hope it eventually gets back to. Who knows what will happen. Today’s news (from my school district in the form of an email to me) letting parents know about damaging and inappropriate TikTok challenges is just yet another reason why I have a love/hate relationship with social media and makes me fearful of what apps like these are doing to our society.
This is why I have been logging off earlier at night and I don’t look at my phone until the morning. More time with my family and more time for baking up sweet treats like these cookies!
Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Cookies
I love adding cinnamon to baked goods in the fall. I feel like cinnamon adds some warmth and brings the flavor to a whole new level! If you are a fan of cinnamon, I hope you try these!
Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter at room temperature
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 2 cups chocolate chips mix of semi-sweet and bittersweet
- Preheat your oven to 375°F.
- Using a stand mixer fitted with the flat beater attachment, beat the butter and sugars on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing after each addition, and the vanilla. Mix again.
- Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl and whisk together. With the mixer on low speed, carefully add in the flour mixture until well mixed and combined. Stir in the chocolate chips. If wanting to enjoy the cookies right away, place the cookie dough in your fridge and chill for at least 1 hour. Form and shape your cookie dough balls and place on a lined baking sheet about 2 inches apart. I like to bake 6 cookies on one baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown around the edges.
- Alternatively, you can form and shape all your cookie dough balls and place on a baking sheet and place cookie dough into your freezer. Freeze overnight. When ready to bake, preheat your oven to 375°F, place on a lined baking sheet about 2 inches apart and bake for 14 to 15 minutes* or until golden brown around the edges. Enjoy!
