This afternoon, I received a semi-frantic SMS from my co-teaher who I will be making cupcakes for on her wedding day. She needed “stuffers” for her souvenir jars and didn’t know what to put in them. Cupcakes would have been an overkill so I suggested cookies. This was also the perfect opportunity to test drive (or should I say test bake?) a cookie recipe I had found on this food blog, Bakeaholic.
As the name suggests, these flatsos are flat cookies that are a little crunchy on the outside and perfectly chewy on the inside. Very hard to resist. I really liked the hint of saltiness in these cookies but my mom (who is my biggest food critic) thought that the recipe could have used a little less of it. To each his own, I suppose.
Let me warn you though. These cookies are BUTTER-filled and could take a toll on the hips if eaten regularly. The parchment paper that I used in lining my cookie sheets were completely greased with butter after I was done baking. Good thing I ran today because I finished had two of these cookies…
We’ll see tomorrow if these cookies pass my friend’s standards, but whether or not they make an appearance at that wedding, they will certainly become a staple in our kitchen.
