Okay. I am starting to see that my sugar addiction is affecting my blogging. I’ve put up more cookie recipes in the past month than necessary. They’re just so GOOOOD! I never really considered myself a baker, but I’m starting to get the hang of it. I’m going to have to stop this cookie madness and try something else… like a pie :)
Before I take a break from all the cookie recipes, I do want to leave you with yet another recipe for those tasty morsels. These ones are like brownie bites! Firm on the outside, chewy on the inside. They are AMAZING after being zapped in the microwave for 15 seconds and paired with a glass of organic 1% milk. I found this recipe in my Cooking Light Cookbook (what else? It’s my freakin’ culinary BIBLE. Forget Joy of Cooking!).
