A few days ago, a highly anticipated email arrived. The news? The first copy of my book sat nestled in a box on a truck on the way to our house! I felt like a kid waiting for Santa as I paced around the room, peering out the window every five minutes, giddy with excitement. My kids waited outside in the front yard keeping watch for the delivery man. All of a sudden I heard “He’s here! He’s here!” I rushed to get the box, my stomach firmly planted in my throat, ripped it open, and finally held my book in my hands. It’s gorgeous! Helen‘s photography and Jen’s design together created a beautiful book packed full of exquisite photos and my favorite recipes. The rest of the books will be ready for distribution just three weeks!
So on to these glorious chocolate cookies. I’m warning you . . . they’re very addictive. You can use the dough for slice-and-bake cookies, or roll them out and cut them with your favorite cookie cutters. You can decorate them and give them as gifts, or leave them out with some milk for that special visitor on Christmas Eve.
They’re gluten free and sweetened with maple sugar. Perfect for celebrating a momentous event or simply satisfying a sweet tooth.
