My husband is a genius.
Have I told you this?
He is big and goofy, and sometimes annoying, but he is also a genius.
For Mother’s Day this year he gave me the new Martha Stewart Cookie cookbook. Now, don’t go getting all twisted up over this being some gesture of women being at home barefoot and baking all day. I asked for the book because I love to bake, and my very favourite thing to bake is cookies. And if I can do it barefoot all the better.
Joey, knowing that if there was a new cookie book in the house, there would likely also be cookies jumped on the idea. Genius as I say. Any gift that will make the recipient happy and get the giver something yummy is brilliant in my books.
So after much perusal and drooling over pictures I decided I needed to try the Milk Chocolate cookie recipe. Ok, who am I kidding, one look at the picture and I was turning the stove on. But lacking a couple of ingredients that day, I have not made them until today.
By all that is chocolaty, these are good. Soft, really chocolaty, with chocolate chunks.
If you are one who has been heard to utter (and comprehend) the statement “It’s too chocolaty” I suggest you leave now. There is nothing for you here.
On the other hand, if you should really be on some chocoholics 12 step program? Step away from the cookies. They are mine.
Lucky for you, you can find the recipe (for free) here.
And Joey? Thanks, dude. Next time I’ll make something you like 🙂
