Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!! 

(Well, for those of you outside of the U.S., Happy November 26th! Yay!) 

When one thinks of typical Thanksgiving desserts, the words "pumpkin," "apple," and "pie" come to mind. Which is all well and good, but I am planning on tossing a new player into the dessert table mix this year, with such keywords as "chocolate" and "cookie". 

I don't think the table will protest. 

And I'm hoping the people eating at it won't either.

Beginning to add the dry ingredients

After incorporating in all of the dry ingredients, I noticed that the batter was dry. Like, really dry. Like dry to the point that I thought that maybe possibly something could be awry, and it maybe probably was my fault.

The almost-forgotten eggs amongst the dry batter crags. 
That could explain why the batter was dry...

A sigh of relief and little mental pat on the back for remembering that.

I substituted chocolate chips because I had them already. Yay convenience. 

Oh, guess what I bought?!

This should help. As a side note, the recipe called for ungreased cookie sheets, but I wasn't taking my chances. 
A worthwhile purchase

Before being baked

Kitchenphobe's holiday tip: It's usually a good idea to remove any finger-adorning jewelry before rolling cookies.
Why you should take off rings before baking
Side note: My ring tells time. (The inside is a sundial). How awesome is that?


Hello cookies!

Hi there cookie

A pile of deliciousness.
A pile of yum

An inside look

With a texture akin to cake/a brownie, these cookies are wonderfully chocolatey and delightful. (A pause for irony—there is a Toll House commercial on right now). I believe that they will make a great addition to our Thanksgiving dessert spread. 

Hope everyone has a relaxing, safe, and delicious holiday!
