summer '09

Andrew's pick for cookie of the week. "Chocolate", was all he said.  I found this recipe.
Hit our s'more stash for the chocolate.
And voila, chocolate cookies.  My dough was a little like brownie batter.  You know, a little thinner than cookie dough.  So it required a couple of hours in the refrigerator.  Also, the recipe said it will make 3 dozen.  I got 16 cookies out of it.  They were chewy in the middle and crispy on the outside.  And if we had more would have been seriously delicious with ice cream. Unfortunately, those sixteen disappeared before they even had a chance to be served with ice cream.  Maybe next time.
This was the last "official" cookie of the week.  Not that there won't be cookies, there will.  Just not for a while.  We will be busy doing other things.  
Like jumping for joy.  Today is the last day of school..... welcome Summer of '09!

Such fun! May your summer days begin with magic, mystery, blessed ordinary and delightful unexpected. Green grass, sweet basil, baseball, pita bread...all those radically good things I've seen you enjoy...make more and plenty!

Peace out and totally rock 'n roll!

XXOO,
Ana

Yeah summer! I don't think I've ever met a cookie I didn't like, and those look really chocolatey.

If you like really chocolatey cookies, I love the chocolate cookies from the Death by Chocolate cookbook (I think they are called Absolutely Deep Dark Chocolate Fudge Cookies). I used them as bribes to get people to do the dishes.

I bought (not as good as homemade) browning cookies and I think I ate most of them. So yummy! I was wondering if you could make cookies out of brownie batter. I think I'll just use your recipe instead:) Happy summer!!
