I think he’ll forgive me for having to eat leftovers… I decided to surprise him with some extra decadent cookies and I know he didn’t mind being the taste tester of these. See, I’m torturing myself now because it’s been nearly a month since I’ve eaten any dessert; and so far I’ve remained strong 😉 Oreos are a weakness of mine, so imagine how hard it was not to eat the Oreos while I was chopping them up! It was rough, but I know I’m in much better shape than I was four weeks ago – that’s what is keeping me motivated to abstain from all things sugar. I guess making these was the ultimate test.
Verdict: He definitely enjoyed being the guinea pig and seeing all those smirks from him while he asked what “those” were when he came home were totally worth it. I made 32 medium sized cookies and bake them for the 10 minutes. Make sure that you let these cool for at least 7 minutes before moving to a cooling rack; but they’re pretty soft, so move them gently. Thanks for reading, enjoy!
