I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to share these. They are a constant in the kitchen of Hayley. These are easy to pull together and don’t require refrigeration of the dough. Brett has said these are his favorite cookies ever… maybe you don’t know B, but that’s saying a lot coming from this guy.
After last post I’ve decided I should include more wonderful things about California (so far I’ve mentioned lemons, beaches, and the weather) to convince everyone I know to move to this glorious state. And if you’re already here, you can gloat right along with me.
Today, I’m featuring nature in California… first, our state flower:
That’s the California Poppy. Cute as can be. Happy and yellow-y orange and pops up everywhere to brighten your day!
Now, I work in an office building that is in an “office park” but that doesn’t mean I don’t get to see wildlife. Exhibit A:
Mama, Papa, and baby ducks! Just strolling past my window. On a daily basis! They have been fun to watch… they’re practically adults now! They grow up so fast!
Here’s a glimpse from one of my runs. There are trails upon trails upon trails for runners/bikers here. I am spoiled rotten. Also spoiled by weather suitable for running 12 mo/year. No need for a gym membership!
A lot of times I make a half batch of these cookies to A) keep us from becoming fat kids and B) use less of my ingredients supply.
For this batch, I used golden raisins, but I think I prefer the normal kind…
