this weekend i made two batches of cookies for a friend's get together. i had most of the ingredients on hand so these were easy to pull together at the last minute.
oatmeal toffee cookies
i knew i wanted something that was "healthier" and i am a sucker for anything toffee. found this recipe on the cooking light website. they were thin, and crispy with just the right amount of sweetness. i should have made 2 batches, they went so fast.
ultimate chocolate chip cookies
then i went with a traditional chocolate chip cookie that came out so good. i cooked them just past done to give them a crisper texture. i like crispy over chewy and underdone. basic recipe but who doesn't love a great chocolate chip cookie.
speaking of sweets, saturday we celebrated a friend's birthday at a local italian restaurant. after dinner we went to henry's hat on ventura for dessert, a strawberry and basil gimlet and a friendly game of yahtzee.
have a sweet day!
