Dear Readers, just in case you didn’t notice already, we have finally (drum roll please) added a print friendly button at the bottom of each post. :) No more copying and pasting for you. Just hit print!
This week I fell prey to some sort of virus that was not fun. My intention was to be baking Sunday night so these cookies would be all set for Josh’s lunches for the rest of the week. I didn’t actually feel up to baking or cooking until Wednesday. And let me tell you, the moment I began to feel like myself, I jumped at it. These cookies just spoke to me. The recipe teased me with promises of, “You will feel better if you bake these.” And it worked! These cookies are a truly magically moist morsel of goodness in your mouth.
Dare I say that this cookie would even make a delightful little breakfast appetizer? I did indeed help myself to two cookies yesterday morning along with a glass of milk. While Grace was busy working on her cursive tablet in her school book at the dining room table, I had my back turned out of Grace’s view so she couldn’t see me savor each bite from the cookie. I kind of felt like Gollum holding a “precious” cookie instead of a ring. But I promise I am not a hoarder. My girls each got a cookie after they had finished eating their entire lunch.
…And when they weren’t looking, I snuck another cookie. :) I probably snuck a few too many cookies yesterday. For penance today, I promise I won’t any cookies. Okay, maybe one or two. Or three or four!
But let me just say that if you are on dessert duty for your family’s upcoming Thanksgiving feast, this little cookie will be sure to please many (already full) bellies. But don’t be surprised if you see random family members standing alone in a dark hallway. They are just enjoying their cookie to the last bite. :)
