A Damn Fine Cookie...

I am a huge fan of desserts. I have a major sweet tooth. I especially love chocolate. It goes great with any number of things, one of which is peanut butter. I have a terribly unsophisticated palette when it comes to most food, but when it comes to sweets, I know my shit.

Megan, the sweetheart that she is, had prepared a kind of cookie I was unfamiliar with yesterday. She said she'd found the recipe online and had never used it before. Now, you might think I'm trying to butter her up (I'm not), but I have to say these were some of the finest cookies I'd ever tasted. She agreed. They had chocolate chunks and shaved chocolate, a nice peanut butter flavor that wasn't overpowering, and some ground-up oatmeal to make them at least a little healthy. The presentation is beautiful - a sort of dark and light marbled appearance. They also had a great texture with that chewiness you look for in a cookie. It was a nice reward after having to mow the lawn. I ate a bunch of them.

Pending Megan's permission, I'll direct you to the recipe. This is a cookie that deserves to be enjoyed by the masses.

*Edited to add: HERE is a link to the recipe. See what you think.

I love cookies. Cookies are the only item I will bake. No cake no pies no strudel. But I can't make a good chocolate chip, it's frustrating. However I do make a very sought after Pistachio Raisin Rugalah.

I try this recipe

My brother makes the best chocolate chip cookies I've ever tasted.

I like chocolate.

I am a huge chocolate fan also, but I never did acquire the taste for peanut butter.

You should try the new Dove triple chocolate bars. Chocolate ice cream, Chocolate swirl ice cream, both inside a chocolate coating.

I'm not saying it's sex, but a damn close second!

Yuck. Chocolate. I'll just go right for the port for dessert instead.

Yummmm. We are big peanut butter fans around here. I will try this, er, or suggest one of the girls try it.

Thanks, Chris!

The cookie sounds divine!

In my neighborhood we have The Chocolate Bar — wine, martinis, and chocolates.

Yes, I live in Heaven.
