I only have 3 words for these cookies: knock…me…dead. I really think these may have been the best cookies that have ever come out of my oven. They are moist, chewy, fudgy, delicious, spectacular, fantastic, addicting, orgas…you get the picture. ;) They are simple too! Who doesn’t love simple?! The dough requires just a little bit of chilling time (but what dough doesn’t need chilling time these days?). They are huge…you were forewarned, but they are so worth the extra calories. I will be enjoying these bad boys all week, and I can’t wait. Right now, I need to work on this food baby/cookie baby that has lodged itself in my tummy! I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend. We sure did around here, and I’m sad to see it end. Hey, only 5 more days until Friday!
I know! I know!
My nail polish…ugh, I should have thought more about my appearance before we started snapping photos. I couldn’t just discard the photo though. I think they came out pretty spectacular today. Oh well. If you are wondering (because I know that you are), the polish is Essie’s Jamaica Me Crazy, and it is one of my F-A-V-O-R-I-T-E-S!
I promise you that I’m going to paint them as soon as I’m done writing up this post.
Beer: Old Dominion’s Morning Glory
Brewed By: Old Dominion Brewing Company
Style: American Double / Imperial Stout
Description: It should come as no surprise why I would want to pair these cookies with a stout, but I thought an espresso stout would be even better, which is why I went with Old Dominion’s Morning Glory. This imperial stout it spectacular. With hints of coffee, chocolate and roasted malts, this beer is everything you crave in an espresso stout and more. It’s the perfect pairing for these cookies and really brings out their extreme chocolateyness. The two are a perfect pair, so if you can get your hands on this beer, I 100% recommend it.
