I’ve gone and gotten domestic again. What has gotten into me? First fudge and now cookies? And, to be perfectly honest, I have ever intention in the world of making the again this week but with peanut butter chips instead of chocolate. Mmmmmm…
I feel compelled to make it clear that I’ve not consumed all of these baked goodies myself. I gave half of the fudge to friends and my Father has already eaten half of the cookies. However, I cannot be held responsible for what I might do in the presence of peanut butter fudge. I’m just afraid that I will not be able to be strong against that force. We shall see.
The cookies that I made tonight are from a recipe that my friend Kate at TeaNoir sent to me. They are called Hermit Cookies and are super-de-duper easy. Like the fudge, if I can handle it, anyone can! And they are super-de-duper yummy too… very spicey. If you love spicey things like I do, you will love these. And you can have them whipped up and ready to eat in thirty minutes flat. How much more could we domestic goddesses ask for??
