I treated myself to these today.
Even bad pictures make them look yummy, dontcha think?
I’ve been pinning many versions of chocolate chip cookie recipes to try – all of which claim to be the very best. I made it my goal to try them all to find out for myself. I started with the N.Y. Times recipe. And these have definitely set the bar high. They’re crunchy, but not crumbly, and very tasty to boot! Well worth the 24 hours I had to leave them in the fridge before baking. (I was actually surprised to find all the dough still in there 24 hours later.)
So, yeah, those were good, but the oatmeal creme pies…. Oh. My. Goodness.
These have been on my pin board for a while, and I’m kickin’ myself for not trying them sooner. I can’t even describe how soft, and chewy, and sugary and creamy they are. SO much better than the boxed version. The only thing I’ll do differently the next time – and there WILL be a next time – is double the filling.
I’ve mentioned how I’m usually pretty good about just taking a bite or two to taste.
But today, I treated myself to a whole one. Of each.
Wanna know why?
‘Cause I ran 12 miles. 12! Miles! That’s 1 hour, 35 minutes and a few seconds of running!
If that doesn’t deserve a cookie and an oatmeal creme pie along with my ice cream, then I don’t know what does.
Well, maybe a promotion.
(yeah. i got it.)
