You know, there is a Special K cereal that has lemon and blueberry, and upon finding this one day in the super market, I didn't think this was something that I wanted to try. But, a little voice in my head told me, "Hey, you always told your kids, don't knock it until you try it." Well, far be it beyond me to argue with myself! So, I tried it. All I have to say is that it's pure genius the way the flavors interact with each other. It gives it that special kind of twang!
I used to think that all brownies were just one color. If I hadn't ever gone to church, I probably would still be thinking that way! But, I don't ever want to be like that. So, I guess it's a good thing. You can find out a lot of things just by going to church in your community. I dare you to try it. You can learn a lot about people, food, animals, especially food! A lot of good cooks! You should go if you haven't. It's a learning experience.
I found this kind of cookie in the bakery around Christmas time. I liked them so much! I took some home to my family, and they did not share my enthusiasm for them, but that evening I had a caroling party at my house, and my guests loved them, and couldn't believe that I hadn't made them. So, I got busy looking for a recipe. While, quickly discovering that there are a ton of recipes out there for peppermint chocolate chip cookies, I couldn't seem to find one that did not have a lot of salt in them, or GMOs, until I ran across this recipe. It has just the right amount of everything. My family doesn't really like peppermint that much, at least, not enough to have it in a cookie, but they do like the chocolate taste with the coffee, and yes, even though they are grown, my girls still pick the stuff out of the cookies that they don't like! So, don't feel alone!
