He went on a kamikaze trip to NYC! And kind of wish I could have gone along for the ride.
Monday night, the night before he left, John had 2 (two!) desserts. Ice cream and 2 of these cookies. This is a no-no in our house, but I let him get away with because of the following excuse...
"But I'm leaving for a whole day! Which means you get more cookies than me! I'm eating mine now!"
|Dough rolled in turbinado sugar.|
Ok, ok. He's right. It's only fair that he gets his share of these cookies. After all, they're delicious! If I had to leave the cookie jar behind I would have done the same thing (and packed a few more "for the road").
This recipe is from an old Cooking Light magazine. They are very sweet and chewy, but small enough where you can get away with eating 2 or 3. I will say that they are a bit time sensitive. An extra minute or two in the oven result in hocky pucks instead of a warm chewy snack. I've done this many a time and just threw out the whole batch and had to start over.
