I know, I know, I have been a complete slacker in posting. The worst part is that I have made some of the recipes. I guess that is what 6 credits of grad school + full time work does to a person. I finally got the chance to sit down and right up a post. I made both Dorie’s favorite chocolate chip cookies from two weeks ago and the honey-wheat cookies chosen by Michelle of Fourchild for this week.
The chocolate chip cookies, were as expected, a complete success. My husband’s favorite food is the chocolate chip cookie. He eats them with breakfast, lunch and dinner plus a few snacks. I counted once and he ate 8 in a day! Can you believe that. I’ve gotten so good at making chocolate chip cookies I can whip out a batch in a little less than 10 minutes not including baking time.
At least the chocolate chip cookies were a success, because my husband did not like the honey wheat cookies. I don’t mind them. They are not my favorite, but they aren’t bad. They don’t have much flavor, but the hint of citrus is nice. The only change I made was to use grapefruit zest because winter time in our house means grapefruit time, so we are swimming in grapefruit. The cookies have a nice honey aftertaste which I really like. Oh well, I can win them all with my husband. At least he tried one.
