Ok, yum. Seriously, just yum. This month's recipe is good. Not just good, but GOOD. So good, that less than a week after I made the first batch, I made a second one. On the same day that we were picking up our Girl Scout cookies. There wasn't going to be a shortage of cookies in my house. But I needed to have these available to me. This is a "I can barely pass by the jar without taking one" cookie.
They are very easy to assemble. Ice cream scoops -- not just for ice cream. They make portioning out cookies very easy. I used dried cherries in the first batch, and a mix of dried fruit in the second one. Normally, I am not a dried fruit fan when it comes to cookies, but this really added a nice dimension. I used a mix of black and regular cocoa. It helped to make these extra rich. I did cut down on the amount of chocolate chunks for the second batch. I wanted the other flavors to come through a little more. This recipe is definitely finding a spot in my cookie world.
Thanks, Kate! Here's the recipe if you'd like to start your own addiction.
