Sunday Baking

Once upon a time my mom told me about a bakery in NYC.

I've not been there, but I will. Someday. 
They make really, really, really good cookies. And they are big. Not big like a pizza big, but big like thick, dense, chunky, and chewy and yummy. I like chewy cookies. 

Lately I haven't felt like baking much. I think it's the heat. 
But today was different. Scotty and I were standing in the kitchen wondering what to do with ourselves. 
I decided to flip through my recipes and found one my mom sent me a few months ago: a recipe for Levain's peanut butter chocolate cookies. I had all of the ingredients and it seemed simple enough, so, I made 'em. 


 Nectar. Of. The. Gods.
They are that good. 

My pals came over to watch "The Mask of Zorro" and I popped a plate of cookies on the counter. They indulged and l.o.v.e.d them.

P.S. This is my 300th post! Yay!

300 posts! That's a lot. Also you should post the recipe! Those look amazing!

Thanks for the reminder about these cookies! Your wonderful mom gave me the recipe a while ago and I haven't made them yet...that needs to change. I MUST make them...even though it's a wee bit hot to make something so heavy. I'll just turn up the AC!! ;-)
