cookie monster?

I've been studying like a maniac and have found a way to relieve my stress. In between breaks from writing papers for school, I bake. New things I see in magazines. Food magazines to be specific. You see, I don't really have time or the discipline to read a whole book because I won't put it down until it's finished. That would interfere greatly with my school stuff so.... I zip through a foodie magazine when I'm in the bath or clearing my head of biology or math or art history. So far, I've made brioche, chocolate brioche, many versions of my ciabatta bread, and ther stuff; just can't remember what else. This is all delightful to smell but I don't eat a lot it. If I ate too much of it, I'd be really fat! So I share. Most everyone has been grateful. Today, I made the cookies you'll see a picture of. I used lime instead of lemon juice because I owe a friend of mine a Key Lime Pie for her belated birthday. I wanted to do a version of this cookie recipe with the Key Lime concept. It worked. Kris thinks they're really good. Tart. I hope my friend Hamby likes them! Bentley and Bridgette looked at me like I was a really bad cookie monster because I wouldn't let them try one. Maybe I'll make some more with lemon. Hmmm. Pineapple is Bentley' favorite fruit- maybe I'll find something he'll do tricks for. Ha!


  1. Stress baking. Wish you were our neighbor! Our momma won't turn on the oven once it hit 80 degrees outside. Soooo we'll dream of your cookies.
