The Pioneer Woman hit my kitchen last night. And also my waistline. No matter, it’s worth every pound added to my body.
I was feeling sweet, so I checked out the “Desserts” section of http://thepioneerwoman.com. As I scrolled through all of the possible desserts I think I could be heard saying “Mmmm,” “Yum,” “OHHH!” I think you get the picture, yes? It could also be described as too-much-deliciousness-for-your-own-good. Disclaimer: If you’re seriously trying to lose weight, keep AWAY from the desserts section. Actually, maybe you should avoid her “Cooking” section all together for a while. But if you’re like me and this sounds familiar, “My jeans don’t fit! I’m not eating for a year…did someone just say chocolate?” then Pioneer Woman away!
I decided to keep it simple last night, so I went to cookies. My eyes came across the words, “Monster Cookies.” Can I get a “yes, please!” from anyone? You gonna likeeee these. Ok here’s the link to the recipe: http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2010/09/monster-cookies/ and let’s begin!
Really, these are glorified chocolate chip cookies. I mean, they’ve got rice krispies, chocolate chips, oats, M & M’s and peanut butter chips in ’em! How can you go wrong? Oh, and if you’re a nut lover, the recipe calls for pecans. But me no like nuts. So my version is nut-less.
I tasted 1…or 2. Maybe even 2 and a half, but I had to. I had to make absolutely sure that the Monster Cookies were delicious. And they were. Because I had 2 more today 🙂
One problem that I did face though, is my cookies almost always (unless my baking has been blessed that day) come out flat. I want puffy cookies! Any suggestions out there? I’d be glad to hear them!
