I like chocolate almost more than anything else. I also really enjoy
cookies. So when I saw these cookies on Pinterest a bit ago, I knew we were destined for each other.
First of all let me tell you, you can do this. These double chocolate cookies are delicious AND simple. As a matter of fact, I’m confident you can nail them and will end up making them over and over again. They are perfect as is or they can be used as a base for something a little fancier or more decadent. Consider using them as a Valentine’s Day treat. In just two days they’ve earned me a thank you from my dad and a kiss from my hubs – chocolate scented no less. Mmmm.
I was in the pie shop yesterday cleaning up and had finally thrown these together. As soon the first batch of these beauties was done, I brought some up to my dad. Talk about perfect timing! He had just come back from a short trip out of town and couldn’t find any chocolate in the house. Terrifying, I know.
We had a laugh over childhood memories of him and my mom trying to eat food without me knowing. They were totally frustrated, especially if they were trying to sneak a piece of chocolate, as I would come running and practically pry their mouth open to try and get some of whatever they were eating. Apparently, I was a food connoisseur from birth and had a strong sense of smell.
It seems that food is the constant thread of my life , connecting past, present and future. One of my favorite things about baking is the bond it creates between people. Or maybe it’s all about the chocolate.
