Does anyone have a dessert that they just cannot resist? I know I do. Put either sorbet or strawberry shortcake in front of me... I just can't say no.
My husssssband on the other hand, is the biggest cookie fan I have ever seen. I truly believe he is related to the Cookie Monster. I hope our children don't turn out hairy and blue! Funny story, when my husband and I started dating, he would buy logs of pre-made cookie dough at the store. It was a necessity on his grocery list. Along with frozen pizzas, frozen corn dogs, fixings for nachos... Blech. Such a frat boy.
I grew up in a homemade only type of house. Every meal, every baked good, always homemade. I'm very fortunate that my love of cooking came from a combination of both of my parents. As it was, I exclusively cooked. I did not bake at all. But I was falling hard for this cookie loving guy. If this was going to be the long haul, there was no way it was going to be filled with break-and-bake cookies full of preservatives and EVERYTHING that is bad for you. No way, Jose. I guess I had to learn to bake.
After a lot of trial and error, I finally got the hang of it. (Once you learn what the active ingredient essentially do, I swear it gets so much easier.) Eventually we ended up with my delicious homemade oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. I guess I do have a little Betty Crocker in me! Perfected to our personal preferences. Yum!
Give them a try. They're sooo good. You really can't eat just one!
We love food. Who doesnt? Ash loves to cook, and Lex loves to bake. Perfect duo right? Dinner. Desert. Wine. DONE.
