This recipe is on the same issue as the Fine Cooking chewy brownies I featured in a hugely successful previous post. Although I own this issue for many years, only now, today, for the first time that I baked these cookies. The recipe seems different and I was curious. I also do not like to use heavily packed brown sugar which I find majority of chocolate chip or chocolate cookies call for. Keep in mind my blog is tree nut free so I omitted the nuts in this recipe. Next time I might use peanuts in the batch, or add coconuts flakes. I also doodled with the cookie size, I made some mini bite size ones and some medium ones. keep in mind in a preheated oven it takes exactly 8 min. tops 10 for the cookies to bake. Please find the recipe here. Scroll down the recipe is there. Well I mentioned somewhere, something about my mantra, well the Fine Cooking Mantra that is, when it works it's right on the money folks!!
*I would have detailed the challenges if it were not for my reluctance to compromise my son's privacy. I think discussion on the subject on many levels can be helpful to families who are going through same sort of situation and some other. I have to really think and brain storm and come up with a productive environment where our experience can be useful to others, with of course my son's permission...and as a boasting proud mom should add, a son who is off to college this year:).
