I am coming out of hiding for one thing and one thing only: cookies.
Specifically, the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap, which was so beautifully organized by Julie and Lindsay. Thank you both for all your hard work and for bringing so
many extra calories much deliciousness into our lives!
First thing’s first: a resounding BRAVO to the three amazing bloggies who sent their delectable creations my way. Tiffany @ tiffanytastes, Kathleen @ thedailycrumb, and Heather @ runeatplayblog–you are fantastic!!
Snickerdoodles. One of my all-time favorites. How did you know?
Chocolate coconut chipsters. Almost like a cowboy cookie! I took these to a dinner party to avoid devouring the entire tin on my own. (They were a huge hit, by the way! Love the big flakes o’ coconut.)
Plus some other goodies. Thank you so much, Kathleen!
And last, but certainly not least, the most gorgeous PB-chocolate cookies I’ve ever seen. Look at that marbling! They taste(d) just as good as they look(ed).
As for me, I *originally* made Angela’s GF (almost) vegan chocolate chip cookies–one of my go-tos. Somehow, though, I managed to botch the whole batch and they came out looking like this:
Too much butter maybe?
Regardless, it wasn’t pretty.
knew hoped that the additions of dark chocolate from TJ’s (one with caramel + black sea salt, the other with walnuts + toffee) and some shredded coconut would complement the caramelly goodness of blondie batter perfectly, and boy did they ever. These were dangerous.
Try them at your own risk. But actually…try them!
Here’s the recipe after I butchered it:
Yes, they were 1/2 whole wheat flour. Eat up, ladies!
