We interrupt the regularly scheduled healthy cooking with some decadent, tasty, buttery, gooey cookies.
The Secret Recipe Club, group A posted their recipes yesterday and one got missed! Whoops! When you've been waiting a whole month so see who your secret blogger is, and are waiting eagerly to see what they made of yours, you can imagine the disappointment on posting day, to find out that no one posted a recipe for your blog.
So a bunch of us got together and created some recipes from Connors Cooking and posted them today! I was thrilled to be led to her blog as she has so many wonderful things to choose from.
I know that I needed to bake. I have 14 daycare kids here today and I NEEDED to bake something for them. I was thrilled to find a simple, quick recipe to makes.
But I didn't have the butter!! Can you believe it, I ran out of butter! So the husband was nice enough to run to the store to buy some butter this morning!!
