I’m going to a Cookie Exchange Christmas party tomorrow, and I’m concerned. I’m working on losing the 40 pounds I gained during the worst of my headache, and cookies do not seem like the best way to do that. (And if anyone mentions “The Cookie Diet” I will stab your eyes out with my ballpoint pen. The PR company for that product is run by assholes and morons who aren’t competent enough to remove me from their email ist.) But, I want to see my friends, and they are throwing a cookie party, so I’m going. Everyone is supposed to bring a batch of cookies and then we exchange them so everyone gets a plate full of different treats.
Does anyone have a recipe for healthy cookies? Or is that term an oxymoron? If I can’t find a healthy cookie recipe, I figure I should find a recipe for cookies I hate. That way when I’m baking them I will not be tempted to lick the beaters and shove five spoonfuls of dough down my throat. (Just to taste test, I swear! Give me my spoon back!!) Of course, I don’t want the cookies to taste bad to everyone, or else I will get a reputation as the bad cookie lady. “Did you taste those cookies Jennette brought? I think they were made of Elmer’s glue and sidewalk chalk!”
Ideas please! And quickly! I need these cookies by tomorrow afternoon.
