An Oldie but a Goodie :: I shocked myself by eating six dozen cookies in four days. Well, my husband helped, but the point is that the cookies are gone.

I had big plans for this post.
Last week I went to the annual cookie exchange
at my mom's best friend's house.

There were so many scrumptious cookies
made by seriously southern women
and I intended to photograph the
beautiful cookies and include recipes

but...we ate almost all of them
before I had a chance to grab a photo.

So, you'll just have settle
for a picture of the empty basket
full of abused wrappings that
was once overflowing with cookies.

Also, I'm feeling lazy
(probably from eating so many damn cookies)
so I've decided to just share the recipe
for the cookie that disappeared the fastest.

It is oh so gooey and yummy.

Enjoy and sorry that I don't
have a photo of said cookie.

They sure were good when
 I ate them all up uncontrollably.
