Happy first day of national Cookie month … err not really, but something like that.
December 1st – it might as well be known as the first day of national cookie month. Welcome to a world where twitter, Instagram, pinterest, facebook, restaurants, grocery stores and every bakery will be bursting at its seams with cookies … and obviously, it’s only right that I do my part.
There are only nine million reasons I love this time of year, and way up there on that list is the excessive amount of cookies that can be found. Today, I have the fudgiest most adult cookies I’ve probably ever made. Smoked Sea Salt will do that to a cookie … make it grow up lickity-spilt.
And it’s gooooooooooooooooooooooood. And superfudgy. And HELLOO … white chocolate Chunks – we’re not talking chips, we’re talking CHUNKS!! … And it’s sophisticated. Something I would serve on fine china, with flutes of milk as I prance around wearing paper crowns from firecrackers … Class with a capital “C”
