These cookies bring me back to a more innocent time.
Mid last week, my mum and I were held at knife point during a home invasion. It was, to date, the most terrifying point in my life and I am still working day to day trying to regain what I had a few days before that happened. I know it will be a slow process but I wish that there was some sort of mind wipe device that could just erase it. Living in fear of the dark is not how I would like to live.
I brought these cookies into work early last week after baking up a big batch. To me, they were a-ok (I preferred the ones that were a little more baked around the sides so as to give the crisp-ness before the chewiness. Also even though I used 2 tbsp of the coffee powder that flavour profile did not shine through owing to the predominance of the chocolate), but my co-workers lapped them up. There was even some hoarding going on!
…. these cookies will remind me of the time when life was a little simpler and less scary.
