Seven is staying the night with my folks, so I have had a lazy afternoon/evening complete with a nap AND a bath. A LONG one. I know you mommies out there are SOOO envious right about now. (Jamie, Jayne, and all you others, you know who you are!) But there is a kicker to the evening. Both good AND bad. And it’s the same thing. What on earth could I possibly be talking about??
Dorie Greenspan’s Chocolate Malted Whopper Drops.
Or, as they should be called, The Best Freaking Cookie EVER.
Now, what could be bad about that, you ask?? Well, I only made half the batch. Damn. Don’t you hate when you do that?? You think, well, I don’t know how this is gonna turn out, so, because I love my malted milk powder almost as much as I love my boyfriend, er, um, husband, I mean, car…well, I was stingy and decided half a batch would be plenty. I was so so wrong.
Upon pulling them out of the oven and letting them cool to the point they only removed half of my fingerprints, I knew these were not going to survive the night. Jon has been sneaking around, scooping them off of the pan and finding lame excuses to go near them, so I KNOW they are good – as he’s a pretty finicky cookie guy. (He’s stelaing another one now, thinking I am not looking. RAT!)
How we kept from eating them all before the pictures were taken I will never know…
These were so easy to make, too – the KA did it all – and from start to finish, we’re talking half an hour? If that?? Good Lord, people. Those things are gonna be calling my name all night long. I really need to get away from them. Wish me luck!!
