cookies, cookies, cookies

I’ve spent the last two weekends gearing up for Jacob’s upcoming Eagle Scout ceremony. I’ve made dozens of cookies (chocolate chip, no bake, and peanut butter) at home. Jake even helped me out with some of them. Then, last Saturday, I went to my Mom’s and we knocked out five dozen or so sugar cookies. I also helped ice them and my Mom finished decorating them herself.

Despite all of that, I made some Twix Thumbprint Cookies last night. This was my second time for these and I made some adjustments. First, I cut the caramels and inserted them into the individual cookies before baking. Second, I drizzled the chocolate with a fork rather than using a bag. Doing it this way evidently leaves you with an excess of melted chocolate, so I made pecan and almond bark with the leftovers. It was a win-win situation.
