It may seem that my blog has been filled with cookie recipes.
Well, that may be the case. But I have good reasons. One – they are so much fun to make! Mixing, beating, creating… Two – I love to photograph them. The camera loves you, baby! Three - J loves to eat them. And who could resist this face?
This cookie recipe is amazing. Chocolate chips, dried cranberries, toasted coconut and oatmeal. They are perfectly sweetened and have a dense yet airy texture. Perfect with coffee. And for breakfast. Just sayin.
