It’s about 25 degrees in Prague today. I spent yesterday chopping wood and wrestling rabid Grizzly Bears so today, I did what any self-respecting bachelor stuck inside with nothing important to do would – I made cookies. I’ve never made cookies before. Well, at least not cookies that weren’t slice and bake. But I had been eyeing this recipe for months, subtly dropping hints to my wife to execute it. She didn’t. So, I took the bull by the horns and did it myself. Well, I’m glad I did. The recipe was easy and the finished product was a crispy-on-the-outside, pillowy-on-the-inside cookie marvel as good as any I have eaten. Of course, the recipe came from one of the best food blogs on the web – “Crepes of Wrath.” Compounding the greatness of the recipe was the fact that I was all mixed, baked and cleaned up in under an hour.
Now I have three dozen awesome chocolate chip cookies sitting in the kitchen. A bunch will go into the freezer but a bunch more will go right where they belong – into my big bachelor belly.
