I’m back! Sorry everyone for the extended hiatus – Daren and I got married last weekend (HOORAY!!) I just couldn’t get it together to write any posts before the wedding, and I really needed a week of doing nothing afterwards. But I’m back in action now, and I promise to go back to posting more regularly with no wedding craziness to stand in my way
The wedding, by the way, went wonderfully. Everything went exactly as planned, and we had a fantastic time! Thanks so much to all of our friends and family who were there to celebrate with us!! Once we get our professional pics back, I’ll share some of those here. In the meantime, let’s get back to the food!
This week’s recipe on Baked Sunday Mornings was these chocolate cream cheese cookies. They’re similar to the triple chocolate cookies I’ve made before, in that they have melted chocolate, cocoa powder, and chocolate chips in them; however, the addition of cream cheese in the batter really seemed to lighten up the taste and texture. They’re soft and chewy, without being quite as dense as the triple chocolates. You could definitely taste the cream cheese in the batter – it gave it a great tangy flavor – but a lot of that seemed to bake off in the oven. Next time, I’d be curious to try increasing the amount of cream cheese and decreasing some of the butter; I think more of the cream cheese flavor would come through that way, giving it more of a unique taste. Regardless, these were an easy cookie to make, and the texture and flavor is great as is. To give it a try, head on over to Baked Sunday Mornings and check out the recipe!
