My friend at work, Amanda, talked to me about these cookies before I made them. She said they wouldn't look that special when you cut them, or even when you take them out of the oven, but then when you put them in your mouth it will rock your world. She said and I quote, "World Peace Cookies changed my life!" She's so cute. I couldn't wait to try them after all that. My life is in a constant state of change anyway.
So I was going to make them to take to a superbowl party. Got all the ingredients out. I really loved that I had all the ingredients I needed already in my pantry. My new salt was just begging to be used. Wait, what is that amaretto doing in this group? Yikes, that is for a different recipe.
Not sure how that got in the picture.
Once I got them rolled into logs, okay don't say it, don't even think it, I mean it, I can read your mind, (people these are chocolate cookie logs for pete's sake!!!!! They are supposed to look good and chocolatey) I realized you have to chill them for three hours. So they did not go with me to the party.
After winning $25 in our work superbowl pot (lucky ducky that I am), I came home to bake the cookies. They cut into slices pretty well and it made exactly 36 cookies! I couldn't wait for them to come out of the oven. I did let them cool and then my DH and I bit into one. It was a good chocolate cookie. I didn't see rainbows or fireworks, but I did manage to eat about ten of them. Yes, in one sitting. I'm not sure they changed my life, but I liked them.
As my friend Marilyn would say, "these are some darn sexy cookies sweetheart!"
I wonder if JACK on LOST would like to share a cookie with us?Check back on Thursday for some delicious spinach and artichoke dip and a bit more about the superbowl.
