I live with a cookie monster. Actually, it doesn't have to be cookies. Any sweet will do. Ice cream, pudding, pie, cupcakes, chocolate, cheesecake, apple crisp...and of course, cookies.
Really, the man will eat anything. And you know what the best part is? He loves everything I make.
Seriously, every baked good that comes out of my kitchen is proclaimed as the best thing I've ever made.
Everyone should have a husband and taste-tester like him.
This past weekend was rainy and gross. I hadn't been to the gym in a day or two so I figured if I was being lazy than I might as well make cookies while I was at it. I don't like to do anything half ass.
How ya like that logic?
My mom has an amazing chocolate chip cookie recipe that would probably be award winning if she ever entered a cookie contest. But she hasn't, so it's not. But it should be.
Anyway, the cookie dough is amazing but I'm starting to think that chocolate chips alone are a little boring.
You know what's not boring? Adding white chocolate, toffee bits, sprinkles, pretzels and reese's to the mix.
You know what's even more exciting? Adding Nutella to the middle as a secret discovery.
