Someone is having a very good Friday…and I hope you are too!

Eric and I leave bird food out every couple weeks and the squirrels always steal it and have a feast! It is so fun watching them hide their food in random spots all over the backyard. They always check behind their back before they bury it. ;)

…Little do they know a creeper (me) is watching through the window!

I always wonder if they even remember half of their hiding places…

We were finally able to get a technician in to fix our broken furnace late last night. We had a nice warm sleep and I can feel my fingers and toes once again.The price tag was not so nice though!

In other news…I made some awesome chocolate cookies…

COOKIE FAIL.

Murphy’s Law: When you have high hopes for a chocolate cookie recipe, it will be a huge bust!

As these were melting like lava in the oven, I was happily cleaning up and putting all the dishes and ingredients away. When I opened the oven door, I had a few choice words for these cookies!

If the walls in my kitchen could talk, it would be a bit like a Jerry Springer show, I’m afraid.

So what went wrong? I made some homemade vegan white chocolate because I thought it would be fun to use it in this cookie recipe. Well, apparently my homemade white chocolate turns into complete liquid when baked! It spilled out of the cookie dough and created the mess that you see above.

Take 2 was pretty successful though (sans white chocolate!).

Assemble the dry and wet ingredients. Note: this recipe is gluten-free and vegan! :)

Mix your flax egg and set aside so it can gel up.

[Awesome tasting cookie dough!]

Place small spoonfuls on baking sheet about 2 inches apart. I flattened the balls with a wet spoon, but I wouldn’t recommend this as they spread out too flat. I would just leave them as balls and this will probably yield a thicker cookie. One of our complaints was that the cookies were too flat.

Bake for 14-15 minutes at 375F.

I’m not sure what to think about these cookies. I remember them tasting much better than they do. I think that might be because they are better tasting the second day, so I will have to try them tomorrow to form my final opinion. Eric and I both agreed that they are too flat, but you might be able to make a thicker cookie if you don’t flatten the dough with a spoon like I did.

They are good, don’t get me wrong, but they didn’t blow me away like I remembered! If you try them out, let me know what you think of them. :)

(See my updates in the recipe!)
