I made cookies.
I don't get to make desserts very often because:
1) there are only two of us, and it would take us about 5,000 years to finish off a cake or pie or something by ourselves.
2) Lester doesn't usually eat desserts anyway.
So, we just don't eat dessert here. There are a few exceptions though. I LOVE ice cream. Love. Love. Love it. And, I have a weakness for McDonald's hot fudge sundaes and Chick-fil-a's milkshakes. Sometimes we'll grab one if we're out, or Lester will surprise me and bring one home after working late. Lester's weaknesses are chocolate chip cookies and brownies. When I do make chocolate chip cookies, I only bake what we will eat that night and freeze the leftover dough for the next time. They last a lot longer that way. ;)
I will take any opportunity I can to make dessert though. I have a really big sweet tooth and would eat dessert every night if I could. In that sense, I am very thankful for Lester not wanting dessert too often. He saves me all those extra calories :)
We're getting together with friends tonight which gave me an excuse to try a new dessert. I found a cookie recipe that sounded delicious, so I thought I'd give it a try. They were really easy to make, and smelled good when I took them out of the oven. I couldn't wait to try one to see how they turned out! I ate one and wasn't sure how I felt, so I ate another.
I've come to the conclusion that I don't like them. They were Mexican Hot Chocolate Cookies. I love Hot Chocolate. I love Mexican Hot Chocolate. I love cookies. These should have been good, but they weren't. To be honest, they were slightly dry and mostly tasteless. How a chocolate cookie can be tasteless I really don't know, but these were. I won't be posting the recipe here. Sorry :(
Why am I going on about cookies that didn't turn out? Why get you all excited about a new cookie recipe only to be told that you won't be getting one?
Because, that's life. At least for me it is. I'm sure if I was Paula Deen or Ina Garten this wouldn't be a problem, but I'm not. I'm Sarah and sometimes I make cookies that just don't taste good. It's all part of my adventures in becoming domestic. :)
