I know it is a few days past Valentine's Day-but I just LOVE Valentine's Day! The restaurants and movies are SO crowded on a holiday, so we decided an outing on Monday(the day after) My DD's had off yesterday, Monday, and we all went to see Valentine's Day(movie). It was excellent, especially if you like chick-flicks! Amazing cast and twists and turns!
When we returned home, I was questioned as to what kind of cookie I was baking.... Hmmmmm, my girls LOVE cookies-especially the ones that I bake. They enjoy having them in their lunchboxes at school and having homemade cookies!
Just before Christmas this year, my sister and I decided to bake together. She had this recipe she found that required NO eggs... I thought it was a bit strange, but I am always up for the challenge. I know that egg allergies have become more common and it would be a perfect candidate! I also thought how many times I decided to bake something and did not have enough eggs required for a recipe. I always have butter in the freezer and flour in the pantry. ALWAYS.... This would be a great cookie recipe if it passes my 2 daughters and my husband's palettes..... Sounds too good to be true. We had SO much fun baking! We need to plan another bake-play-date!
These are delicious! As my husband left for the office this morning, he said "Jo, please no more baking" as he patted his belly. (Yes, he likes them-if you were wondering) The flavor just melts in your mouth. The original recipe calls for "Nestle swirled holiday morsels" which are unavailable. They discontinued them. :( I called Nestle around Christmas and they said there was not a demand for them! I subsituted Valentine's M&M's. I guess Nestle wants me and everyone else to purchase M&M's. Imagine using the dark chocolate M&M's. Using mint extract instead of vanilla. The ideas are endless on this one! I used my cookie dough scoop-it is the small 1 teaspoon size!
Look at the red, pink, and white M&M's!
Sprinkled with powdered sugar!
With roses from my DH! Awwwwwwwwwwww!
Grab this recipe while it is still on the Internet!
I think the saying "the way to a man's heart is through his stomach" could possibly have some merit.... ;) :) ;)
Yummy for sure! Thanks to my sister!
