Remember last week when I casually mentioned that I might throw a bag of mysterious Christmas candy cane kisses into a chocolate cookie recipe? Well, that was the best decision ever. Using this cookie recipe, these stale kisses, a cup of chocolate chips and a large knife for chopping, I created my favorite cookies to date. Try it. You will not regret it.
If you’re not in the mood for baking and you’re local to Minneapolis, do yourself a favor and visit YoYo Donuts. I went there for the first time yesterday and couldn’t decide on one pastry so I brought half a dozen home. I’m not always the most rational early in the morning. At least I’ll have a maple bacon donut, an apple fritter, a s’more donut, a red velvet cake donut, a dirt cake donut and a giant glazed pretzel to feast on when I get home this evening. Jealous?
P.S. Note to self: work on taking your own photos, Elissa. I have all these good moments to share and nothing to show for it!
