I've copied the recipe into my personal recipe book, which I've carried with me to all my residences.
These cookies were perhaps my first real venture into baking. Through this recipe, I learned how to double and triple recipes (since this one only makes about 12 cookies). Through this recipe, I really learned to appreciate the pleasure of making cookie dough balls.
I recently found some dark chocolate and mint chips and excitedly bought 4 bags. Though I initially wanted to use them only for brownies, I realized there would be no better way to introduce them into our household than with cookies.
|Perhaps a seasonal item, 'tis the season indeed.|
With the Boston days getting colder and darker, I really start to get homesick. Now, don't get me wrong. I really actually enjoy the autumn here. That crisp air is like no other, and it just makes you feel alive as you breath it in. But it also makes me miss my family and friends.
These cookies are almost the embodiment of that feeling.
I definitely needed these cookies this week.
