It came out of no where and hit me like a ton of bricks—I needed to bake something! I tend to get this craving when life is hectic. This time I was recently unemployed, we had just gotten back from vacation, and signed a lease on a new apartment—life was definitely hectic. My kitchen didn’t get much use this summer, so this batch of cookies on a quiet morning was the perfect way to say goodbye to my first ever apartment. I saw this recipe floating around Pinterest and since I had everything in my pantry, I got to work.
Now, cookies have always been a baking weak spot for me. Cakes, breads, pie, tarts, brownies—no problem. My cookies tend to turn out super wet and I end up dumping tons of flour into them and when they come out, their mediocre at best. But not these cookies. I even forgot the vanilla and eggs and added them after the dry ingredients and they turned out great. Chewy, flavorful, soft, delicious. Seriously the best ever.
Don’t believe me? Be my guest and give them a try. You won’t be sorry. Thanks to Kelsey from Apple a Day for discovering this gem of a recipe.
