You know those cookies you can smell a mile away? Yeah, those. The ones courtesy of Great American Cookies, those sinful storefronts in malls (and now cookie trucks!) across the country. Well, I’ve always had an affinity for them, even knowing how awfully bad they are for me. And what I didn’t realize until this week is that this Dorie recipe produces an almost-exact replica of those cookies.
Not only did they taste the same – chewy, sweet, salty and out-of-this-world – but they looked just like them… layer upon layer (upon layer) of pure goodness. What I didn’t expect, was the (cookie) monster I had unleashed after these had come out of the oven. My best decision was to omit the chopped apricots. However, this only led me to eat about 1/2 a dozen of them for dessert one night (shhh, don’t tell my Weight Watchers app!). Fortunately, I can jump back on that wagon. These cookies are what Weekly Points were made for, of course.
