Well, at least I am finally making it for one of the Ellie weeks this month. I am a bit embarassed though that it is, of course, the week that cookies were involved. I really do want to cook too, but there are so many more ingredients that I just don't always have on hand. Anyway, here I am with the Triple Chocolate Cookies, chosen by my dear Gabi of The Feast Within.
These cookies were thin, chewy and had a little bit of a nutty taste and texture from the whole wheat flour. Overall, we thought that they were quite tasty, though, to be honest, I probably wouldn't make them again. That is just me though. If I am going to make a dessert then I am probably going to just go for it, unless it is something that truly shines brighter than it's not-so-healthy counterpart (like this or this that I can't wait to make). I just try to eat the goodies in moderation and not go overboard. A lot of what I bake here is given to friends and family, so, though it probably seems like it, I don't eat a ton of sweets.
Anyway, I am sincerely hoping that January is a kinder, friendly and most of all slower month around our house so that I can get a bit caught up on life. Happy Holidays to everyone! I thought I would pass on and share this great Christmas picture that the lovely folks over at One for the Table sent.
