I wasn’t overly impressed.
But first, an apology: I’ve been away for far too long. But I have a GREAT excuse.
P.T. was born March 13, and he’s kept me quite busy. Sure he looks cute and serene here, but man does he have lungs! He’s a good baby, and I’m working hard to keep up with him. Baking has been secondary.
But now, back to the cookies. They were good cookies – dunked in milk they were loaded with brown sugar and made a great late-night TV-watching snack. I mixed dark chocolate chips, mini chips and semi-sweet chips in mine (honestly, I was cleaning out the baking drawer and just threw in all my remnants, but my story is that it made for a nice surprise when you bit into a chip). But these are still cookies and thus too crisp for my taste. I prefer cookie bars because they are softer and more cake-y. But I can see how they’d be a hit at a picnic this summer or in a room full of kids. Bake away!
