The recipe was chosen by Michelle of "Bad Girl Baking" at http://badgirlbaking.com/
Thanks Michelle, it was a good choice for me, who is jumping in this challenge with both feet. It was pretty tame, as far as baking goes, of which I am so glad. This way I don't feel too "inadequate" in my baking skills. I have baked of course, but baking for family and friends vs. foodie bloggers with great skills and great cameras, is another thing all together.
It was fun. My husband, who is a bit confused by what I am doing said, "now do I get to eat these, or do these go overseas?" (I am also a member of Operation Baking Gals). Anyway, he was trying to snitch one as they came out of the oven and kept calling Dorie, Dottie. (sigh)
A good cookie. Easy to make, easy to "grab".
Nuts and fruit and granola? Breakfast foods!!
As I was saying, I did like them, but there are a lot of ingredients in there. I like all of the ingredients separately, but together they are a bit "too much" for me. I prefer a simpler cookie.
Having said that.....I still am grabbing (that's the purpose I believe) one every time I walk by the cookie jar.
see? Is the cookie jar half full or half empty? I am "grabbing" one every time I walk by.
