Last week I was asked to bring snacks to my small group. For those of y’all who know me, I’m not one to go to the store and buy snacks unless there is absolutely no time to make anything/it’s short notice. Since I am always looking for an excuse to bake, I figured I’d try out a new cookie recipe thanks to my fellow blogger Sally and her adorable blog. Sally and I share something in common: we have a baking addiction. Her blog is appropriately titled, “Sally’s Baking Addiction“. These monster cookies were the softest cookies I’ve ever baked. I don’t know what it was, but everyone at my small group was raving about how soft and chewy they were.
OH, and probably the most important thing of all…this was the first thing I made with my new Kitchen Aid mixer! I cannot express the joy this piece of kitchen equipment brings me. Maybe only a few of y’all will appreciate that tid-bit of info, the rest of y’all will think I’m crazy, which is fine. I’m ecstatic and in love…with my new mixer. I spent a few extra bucks to get it in my favorite limited color (candy apple red) and the glass bowl. And because Kitchen Aid rocks they threw in a meat grinder attachment by doing a mail-in rebate. So now I can grind meat with my mixer, which is cool for this meat eater.
