They are counting jury votes if they were final 2. stop it, you are counting your chickens too soon. Nicole believes (envisions) them both at Finale being there. Nicole keeps sneezing, I hope she isn't fighting off the start of a cold. Stay healthy Nicole!
Sometimes happiness is a feeling. Sometimes it's a decision.
Haaa. Holly comes into the kitchen after spending however long doing her makeup, only to have Cliff and Nicole ask if she had a bruise - she didn't blend all that crap on her face enough. She gives a five minute explanation of how the lighting is great but the mirrors aren't, it's sooo hard.
Funny, plenty of other people have done makeup just fine over the years and didn't end up looking like a wax figure.
Put all the dry ingredients (sugar, brown sugar, flour, baking soda, & salt) in a bowl.
Mix together as you add each ingredient.
Melt 1 cup of butter. (Very important as this recipe calls for melting the butter rather than softening it. This creates a less cake-like cookie & allows the flavors to meld together)
Add the eggs & vanilla extract (vanilla extract imitation will also work).
Mix thoroughly until the cookie dough turns into a lump form.
Pour in the bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips bit by bit, & mix into the dough as your pour.
Cover the dough mixture & store in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Once 30 minutes have elapsed, bring the cookie dough out from the fridge, form 2 inch dough balls & place on a baking tray with space between each cookie.
Put into the cookie dough in the already pre-heated Oven & let bake for 10 minutes.
Aim for the outside color of the cookie to be a light brown however you want the inside to still be warm & gooey. They may seem a little under-done, but after letting them settle on the tray for a few minutes, they will hold their form & firm up.
