The amazing Kelly from american cupcake in london has a recipe for a cookie that cannot help but cheer you up.
I was having one of those days. I had gotten up at the crack of dawn to get to work super early so that I could fit everything I wanted/needed to do into my day. The Edinburgh weather however had other ideas and decided to wreck the roof of my flat, cue water coming through the bathroom ceiling. Cue having to abandon work and cue worrying whether the roofer could sort it out.
So to let out the stress and anger I could either smash plates (expensive) or oreos (potentially delicious). I had stumbled on this recipe a while back and it popped back into mind. I had all the ingredients except oreos, nothing a quick trip to the corner shop did not solve, and so I was good to go.
I defy anyone to not be cheered up by these cookies, they certainly made my day a lot better (that and the roofer fixing the problem, yay!)
I could wax lyrical about these cookies for ages but I shall simply say they are absolutely lovely. TRY THEM! If you want to recipe you can find it here.
