Life is Too Short…So Eat the Cookie!

Life is Too Short…So Eat the Cookie!

Inspiration came to me in form  of a chocolate chip cookie…

or to put it another way….

it was just too cold outside to go anywhere, and I was bored.

While looking through my collection of cookbooks, I stumbled upon a recipe for Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies from  The Cat Who…Reunion Cookbook  by Julie Murphy and Sally Abney Stempinski.   The recipe is  really easy to follow and doesn’t require a commitment to spending all day in the kitchen baking.  I wasn’t too sure about adding cocoa powder to chocolate chip cookies, but it added another flavor dimension to basic chocolate chip cookie.  They turned out to be a very rich chocolate chip cookie.  The next time I make these, I’ll make them with white chocolate chips.  The combo of dark and white chocolate should be yummy to the extreme!

Oh, you can find the vintage platter the cookies are sitting on at…
