I am 28 weeks preggo so this morning I will be heading to the doctor for my monthly check-up and the all important glucose tolerance test. Naturally this appointment comes on the heels of a weekend where all I did was eat cookies. The women in my family were suppose to get together this weekend for a baking extravaganza but since the temps dropped, the winds picked up and the snow started to fall, I opted to stay home with Josh and bake from the comfort of our kitchen. Suds could barely contain himself with all the butter that was being creamed, melted and mixed. Have I mentioned he's kind of a crackhead when it comes to butter?
Speaking of butter, I tried out Paula Deen's Chocolate Gooey Butter Cookies. Paula's cooking philosophy is something I can get behind since according to her, adding "a little butter y'all" makes everything taste better and I have to say that I can't find any flaw in that reasoning. The cookies turned out well. I think that they are more fudgy than gooey maybe. Gooey, fudgy, potato, patato. It's all edible in my book.
