There have been some ups and downs around these parts lately. Luckily, there have been WAY more ups than downs, and the ups have peaked quite high. One recipe I made recently demonstrates this very idea.
I adore Dawn of Vanilla Sugar. She makes some of the most amazing looking baked goods. I seriously want to take up camp in her kitchen.
She recently posted a recipe for double chocolate coconut cookies. The minute I saw them, I knew I had to make them!! I stirred up all of my ingredients. I used a cookie scoop to place the dough onto the cookie sheet and placed them in the oven. When the timer went off, I ran to the oven expecting to see the gorgeous puffy cookies Dawn had made….but I saw pancakes:
Tear….I’m a puffy cookie kind of girl. The good news? They’re amazing. Their flavor wayyyyyyy overtakes the fact that they’re flat vs. puffy:
So, sometimes things don’t end up looking or being exactly how we think they should look/be. A lot of the time, that doesn’t matter . Thanks for the delicious recipe Dawn!
