Cookie love

January 25, 2012

I like cookies.  A good deal, apparently.  Who wouldn't?  After all, the smooth, thick aroma gliding around the kitchen, beckons for love, and the slightly salty/buttery outside that compliments a warm nutty interior calls "put-your-name-here."

Cookies have to be perfect, too.  If they can manage to all be eaten within ten minutes, last a life time in the family's favorite recipes box, and be addicting then they are pronounced trustworthy.   It's usually hard to find the perfect recipe because well, admit it, chocolate chip cookies may be the best thing since Jane Austen, but eventually you'll...


want to try something new.  And there happens to be a paraphernalia of cookies recipes all saying the same thing in bold print "I am a 5 star, 347 people rater, most amazing cookie that ever lived."  It's intimidating and you know it.  I know you know it because I go through the same thing when I want to try something new.  I've gone through it lately actually.  And I was lucky enough to bump into the most amazing cookie recipe I've ever used.  And the cookies were ravishing and my family and friends loved them.

*gasp* did you get your camera???? these pictures are gorgeousness and make me super hungry. 'course if I made them, they wouldn't be the same as your perfect ones. *sigh* someday, dear one, we shall meet and bake and sew and knit {<<I don't know how many times I've said this}, but I know it will happen. *wink* it simply must.

love you always,
your goosey twin sis.
