Remember when people had a sense of humour? Those were the good old days. Have you read this satirical essay? I think it’s a brilliant bit of writing. It made me laugh. Did you read the comments? They’ll make you want to give up on humanity. When did people stop laughing at themselves? When did we stop having fun?

When I hit Facebook every morning, hoping to share, say, a photo of a kitten and a bird that have become friends – thus DEFYING THE LAWS OF NATURE – I am inundated with sludge. I click through to a YouTube video. The comments are a cesspool of terrible spelling, negativity, abuse and racism. The comments are on a video about blueberry hand pies. I head back to Facebook. Someone has posted a reminder that Facebook is screwing me over. It seems that my Post Reach Stats reflect society’s selfish need to eat, sleep and work. They also reflect that I pay $0 for facebook marketing. I read that people are stealing your photos and content. People are pinning wrong. I should be more focused on SEO and analytics. You’re upset because Google is doing everything it can to prevent people from finding your recipe for Ants on a Log, and Facebook used your profile picture in an ad for wart remover.

Good grief.

People, some of you are wrecking the interwebs. And I love the interwebs. Cut it out. STOP WRECKING THE INTERWEBS.

Quit being total nutters. Let’s share more videos about cats on Facebook. Isn’t that why the interwebs was invented? I think we should do better. Let’s use YouTube to tell Britney that her latest video has some of the best thrusting ever set to music. Let’s self-promote, but keep it classy. Don’t beg people to like you. If you want fame, do something worthy of it. Work hard, create things you are proud of. Quit worrying about SEO and blog stats for a few hours. Quit whining. Haters gunna hate; be yourself. Don’t steal. When you find something you don’t like on the interwebs? Move on. Take the high road, walk away. Defend those who cannot defend themselves, but do so positively, and then go kick something. And leave nice comments for people. It makes ‘em happy.

I think you’ll find, as I have, that It is enough. I have found that it is enough because – reality check – I’m not running away from chemical weapons or dudes with guns. It is enough because I am living a life that many people would give anything to have. It is enough because there are far more important things in life than internet stats and Pinterest shares. It is enough because my parents taught me to have respect for others – even super annoying people – and to quit worrying about silly stuff. And I’m betting that during my last moments on this planet, I won’t really care about my blog’s performance metrics or how many likes I had on Facebook. I hope I’ll be thinking about my friends, my family, and a life well lived.

So, lest you think I’m a total downer, and because some of you were really sad when I wouldn’t give you Haddy’s cookie recipe, I made you these little beauties. Double chocolate cookies with pecans and – surprise – caramel inside. No, I didn’t invent stuffed cookies, silly! There are lots of versions of these floating around. This is just my take. However, I did develop this cookie dough recipe. Yup, I put my baking school education to proper use. And I’m going to tell you that I’m pretty proud of that. These cookies are a little soft, and a little chewy. Sweet, nutty, and chocolatey. There is a caramel tucked into the centre of each cookie. When the cookies are still warm, the caramel will be all gooey and oozey when you bite into it. As they cool, the cookies become a little more chewy and so does the caramel. (Ten seconds in the microwave will bring back the goo factor, should you so desire.) Yup, that’s fleur de sel sprinkled on top. Tres chic.

It is possible that these cookies will spark something inside of you which will, in turn, help you to record the perfect cover of When Doves Cry to post on YouTube. And should that happen, I will leave a nice comment to say you play air guitar better than anyone I know.

Double Chocolate Cookies with Pecans and Caramel

print and bake

Yields about 27 cookies.

  • 6 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar (packed)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 27-ish caramels – one for each cookie – such as Kraft Caramels
  • fleur de sel for sprinkling on top of cookies

Mise en place – begin by getting organized. Measure out all of your ingredients. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper, preheat oven. Unwrap the caramels – this will take FOREVER and make your fingers sticky. It will be worth it. 

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, whisk together the cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

In a medium sized saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. As soon as the butter has completely melted, remove from heat. Stir in the granulated and brown sugars, mixing well to combine. Stir in the vanilla extract. Stir in the eggs, one at a time, until well blended. Pour the butter/sugar mixture into the cocoa mixture, and mix until well combined. Stir in the flour until just combined (and no pockets of flour remain). The dough will be thick. Finally, stir in the chocolate chips and pecans.

Use a small ice cream scoop (mine holds about 1.5 tablespoons) or a heaping tablespoon to drop the dough into rounded mounds on prepared baking sheets – leaving 2 inches between each cookie for spreading. With your finger, make an indentation in the centre of each cookie. Set a caramel in each indentation, pressing gently with fingertips to secure, and being careful not to press through to the bottom of the cookie. Top the caramel with a generous half teaspoon of dough, and gently press the dough around the caramel to encase it. Sprinkle with a wee bit of fleur de sel.

Bake for about 9-11 minutes – until slightly crusted on top yet still slightly soft. Because of carry-over baking, take care not to over-bake – if the cookies feel slightly underdone, they’ll firm up as they cool. Let cool for five minutes on the cookie sheet before removing to cool completely on racks.

While still warm, the cookie will be soft and the caramel will ooze. As the cookies cool, the cookie and caramel will become a little more chewy. If you’d like your caramel to ooze after cooling, just microwave the cookies for about 10-15 seconds.

    man alive, Movita, this spells trouble!!

    I’m Pinning this and those on my Christmas list: forget you’ve seen it and be surprised!

  2. Willow October 3, 2013 at 3:50 pm #

    Yes! Thank you so much for saying everything you just said. I think the internet makes it easy to forget sometimes that there is an actual person behind whatever content you are reading/watching, and also easy to feel anonymous in your response to said content, and it just brings the most unnecessary rudeness out of people. I think that’s one of my favorite things about food bloggers… they’re all such a nice bunch of people. 🙂

    Oh, and they share recipes for things like CHOCOLATE PECAN CARAMEL COOKIES. Imma gonna go make a batch of these and eat them all before the husband gets home, then pretend it never happened. Yeah. That’s my plan.

    • movita beaucoup October 3, 2013 at 4:01 pm #

      The internet should be for happy things like puppies and kittens. And for learning. And for connecting. NOT for telling someone she needs to lose weight, is stupid or shouldn’t love who she loves. And all of this nonsense with Facebook/Pinterest/Google+? GAH! So much pressure! It’s exhausting.

      Post nice stuff. People will like it. You will fly to France to party with Kanye West. IT’S AS SIMPLE AS THAT.

      Or, in my case: your parents will think your blog is cool, and that will be enough.

  3. stormy peach October 3, 2013 at 3:50 pm #

    these look amazing! I can’t wait to try the recipe 🙂 Can I also ask you, what camera do you use?

    • movita beaucoup October 3, 2013 at 3:56 pm #

      I have a Canon 7D – I’m still learning how to use it, and love it.. My honest opinion, however, is that it is far more important to invest in lenses than camera bodies! I had a hand-me-down Canon 20D until very recently, and bought a couple of nice lenses to get me going. Nice lenses = better photos. Once I felt like I kinda sorta new how to use my DSLR, I upgraded to the 7D. Um… I still have no clue when it comes to photography. That’s what makes it fun…

      • stormy peach October 3, 2013 at 3:57 pm #

        well the photos look AMAZING! I have a Canon Rebel that I tried to learn how to use but finally just ditched and went back to my digital Canon powershot I think I will attempt again and definitely try the route of getting a better lens than the one my Rebel came with. Thanks 🙂

        • movita beaucoup October 3, 2013 at 4:14 pm #

          Thank you so much! I’m teaching myself a lot about post-processing online. See? The internet can teach you cool stuff! I have a number of friends with Rebels, and they all love ’em! It took me about 2 years before I felt like I could even understand the basics of my DSLR – and it still confuses me. I bet you’ll start lovin’ it too! (That said, you can do amazing things with point and shoot cameras. Renée – http://www.sweetsugarbean.com – does amazing things with hers!)

  4. Amy October 3, 2013 at 4:00 pm #

    I’m all for cat videos on facebook. In fact, let’s just create catbook. We could do it together and become millionaires (obviously it would be infinitely more popular than fb) . K?
    Honestly, I don’t understand how people spend so much time online. Like if I keep up with blogs and email, fb falls by the wayside. Forget twitter or instagram, I only sign on there once a month when i remember it exists.
    Your blog is one of the reasons I come back online though 😉 These cookies look amazing!!

    • Eggton October 3, 2013 at 4:31 pm #

      Renee certainly does! I had never seen her site before and I really like it. Glad you linked.

      And Amy, when you think of an awwwwwesome idea like Catbook, you’re not supposed to TELL ANYBODY!! You’re supposed to call Apple or an app developer and make it happen. Or something like that. 🙂

      • Amy October 3, 2013 at 6:01 pm #

        aw man, me and my big mouth. We need to find a cat/computer expert to help us with this.

    • movita beaucoup October 3, 2013 at 10:54 pm #

      Guys… catbook and dogbook already exist. So… maybe CatTube?

    Thanks for the great comments Movita. I agree with you. We need to spread sunshine and positive words and actions. Thanks for a great read and for scrumptious cookies….chocolate caramel, my fave. 🙂 xo

      And unicorns. Don’t forget the unicorns.

  6. Karen Kerr October 3, 2013 at 4:08 pm #

    Well said. I’m with you. On another note, the photos are stunning! (and I want one of those cookies)

  7. mellissa @ ibreatheimhungry October 3, 2013 at 4:09 pm #

    I think you’ve found the secret to happiness, and it’s these amazing cookies. If I ate some of these, I’d probably be all zen and stuff too – oozing good will toward others like that caramel. Alas my sugar free, grain free diet (also hitting 40 this year) has made my patience wear thin with annoying people, which makes me cranky about jerks on the interwebs. I will take comfort that all is not lost though, since I read that Whole Foods article a couple of weeks ago and laughed so hard that I cried actual tears (LTIC – “laughed til I cried”, I’m making it a thing – you read it here first!!)

    Also I still leave nice comments to make people happy – like this one. You’re welcome. 😉

    • movita beaucoup October 4, 2013 at 8:34 am #

      Sometimes I worry that the people on the interwebs who write the funniest stuff will stop writing the funniest stuff because of all the stupid people who are unable to grasp humour, sarcasm and satire. That the best writers will censor themselves. That they will tire of the nonsense.

      But then I remember that all the funny people are making fun the dumb people, and it makes for good writing material.

  8. Liz October 3, 2013 at 4:13 pm #

    Nice recipe. Thank you.

  9. Stacy October 3, 2013 at 4:24 pm #

    I always knew I liked you! I refuse to beg for Likes or solicit my friends on Facebook so the number grows organically, as it should. Content is king and you are its queen, Movita.

    These cookies may well take a prime spot during Cookie Week (in November) with your kind permission. I will, of course, bake my own and take photos but give you full recipe credit. Love that caramel and salty sprinkle.

    • movita beaucoup October 3, 2013 at 4:31 pm #

      I always knew that you knew that you liked me!

      GAH! Cookie Week sounds awesome!! I hope they make the cut! I took some to my parents last night and my dad texted to say that he loved them. HE NEVER TEXTS.

      If you were a YouTube video I wouldn’t even say that I don’t like the colour of your skin, your sexual orientation, or say that you sing off-key. And I would share you on my Pinterest page. That’s how much I like you.

      • Stacy October 4, 2013 at 3:25 am #

        I wish I were a YouTube video.

  10. Eggton October 3, 2013 at 4:28 pm #

    HEAR HEAR. (Or here, here. Never was 100% clear on that.) But I CONCUR.

    One of the people I know on facebook got mad at everyone on facebook the other day because none of us had called her recently to hang out. It was THE WEIRDEST. And because of it, I spent approximately 3 hours on my iPhone texting with other people about how crazy her post was. Ironic, isn’t it? In a way, she brought us all together (without her.)

    Anyhoo, have you see the commercial for poo pourri? It’s kind of funny if, like me, you have a slight tolerance for potty humor because, like me, you live with a dude who is always trying to get you to appreciate potty humor, even though you don’t. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZKLnhuzh9uY

    • movita beaucoup October 4, 2013 at 8:46 am #

      I love Those Friends! They are so much entertainment for the Rest of The Group.

      Of course I’ve seen Poo Pourri! Potty humour reins supreme at our house. What is wrong with you? Never mind. I’ll just text Shannon and ask her…

  11. Elizabeth October 3, 2013 at 4:51 pm #

    I agree with everything you’ve said here. Several times this past week I have considered closing down Facebook on account of the negative political sludge that’s being flung around (among other things). Unfortunately, I believe that would also delete my blog FB page, so there you go…The internet is holding us hostage.

    These cookies look amazing and I will be making them. Pronto.

    • movita beaucoup October 4, 2013 at 8:48 am #

      You know what would help? Post a few extra kitten photos today.

      And then pray no one starts a comment battle about the kitten’s mixed ethnic backgrounds or sexual orientation.

  12. Me October 3, 2013 at 5:01 pm #

    Oh boy! These look great!

  13. Allison (Spontaneous Tomato) October 3, 2013 at 5:04 pm #

    Yes! You could turn this post into a mini manifesto called How to Use the Internet (or Interwebs or Cat Video Sharing Platform… however you choose to refer to it).

    Anyway, I agree wholeheartedly with what you wrote and with the existence of those cookies!

    The “interwebs” lol my older sister will never stop gloating that she didn’t make up that phrase (my claim for years). Love it! I love that you included pictures of delicious cookies with your thoughts inter-twined. I couldn’t decided if I wanted to read more or see more pictures of cookies – both I guess.

    • movita beaucoup October 6, 2013 at 10:18 am #

      Maybe just EAT some cookies? That way you can look at ’em, read stuff on the interwebs AND look at pictures! Win, win, win!!

  16. rosiebeaucoup October 3, 2013 at 5:51 pm #

    We were testers for these cookies and, after tasting, I immediately emailed Movita to invite her to a day long Christmas baking session in our kitchen. She could make these cookies and I would work on the Christmas pound cake. I know the family travelling from France will love both.
    Try the cookies. Decadent doesn’t nearly cover it. Such talent, Movita!

  17. Nancy @ gottagetbaked October 3, 2013 at 5:54 pm #

    Bravo! I was thinking the exact same thing this morning when I was reading through my entertainment and traditional news websites how awful everyone and everything is. No one had a single positive thing to say. The news was all bad and then reading through the comments made me want to slit my wrists. So I’m getting behind your call to post more cat videos (and since I’m a dog owner, let’s have more dog videos too!). I’m totally stealing that catbook idea and calling mine dogbook <– ack, look at me being a hypocrite! Stealing content, I'd never! I've fallen in love with your cookies. I want to marry them and be with them forever. I'm going to photoshop myself into your gorgeous photos hugging that bowl of cookies.

    • movita beaucoup October 6, 2013 at 10:20 am #

      That’s the best use of Photoshop I’ve ever heard of.

      Also… um… Dogbook already exists.

      Let’s do it! Let’s post more pictures of chocolate, pecans and floofy things!!

  20. Caroline October 3, 2013 at 6:49 pm #

    Sorry I was just posting a picture of myself on Facebook. Those cookies look deadly. I am using them in my nutrition assignment just for a laugh! Oozing caramel……seriously!

  21. Melissa@EyesBigger October 3, 2013 at 7:39 pm #

    I would just like to say that I prefer dog pictures myself. But otherwise, hal-ay-loo-ya for writing this. It needed to be said. I, personally, am on the interwebs mainly just to further my cookie, chocolate and caramel obsessions. It’s nice to see you are encouraging of this. I like it when people are supportive 😉

    • movita beaucoup October 6, 2013 at 10:22 am #

      Oh, yes! Floofy dog pictures are the bestest! Let’s do more of that too!

    I happen to like cute little cat videos. I also like to look at pretty things that have nothing to do with anything. The internet was invented so we good folks could partake in procrastination. It’s way better than actually doing anything we’re supposed to do. Oh, and I want like the entire batch of these cookies, and I refuse to share them with anyone. Sorry, people!

    • movita beaucoup October 3, 2013 at 10:57 pm #

      This is exactly my point. If it weren’t for the internet I’d have to work all day instead of laughing at gifs and watching cat videos. AND THAT WOULD BE A SAD DAY INDEED.

  24. Renee October 3, 2013 at 10:28 pm #

    You da best. Love it when you rant and bake cookies for us. Thanks for sending a little “point and shoot” love my way, too. One day I’ll put my big girl panties on and get a DSLR. Those cookies! Yum!

      How about NOT buying a DSLR and then spending your savings on more chocolate and candy?

    Gorgeous cookies! And, I’m so with you on the collective bumming-out of the internet. I decided a while back to accept that I can only control what I do, and I’d rather spend time baking and making content than worrying about who didn’t link to me “correctly.” So, in the spirit of internet friendliness and a bit of solidarity, I’m off to tweet, pin, and such your lovely cookies. And, let’s be honest, I’ll probably watch a couple of cat videos.

    • movita beaucoup October 6, 2013 at 10:25 am #

    Cats are the most amazing creatures! They can make you run screaming, tearing your hair out and ranting like a crazed lunatic. And then they waltz in five minutes later as if nothing is wrong and you pick them up and cuddle them. And then they forgive you and you are happy they did. Lol, big up to all the cat love. I like this blog a lot!!!!

  32. shannon October 5, 2013 at 10:33 am #

    i LOVED that Whole Foods essay: Mr. Table actually sent it to me the day he saw it with a note saying “i think she sounds like you.” a compliment, to be sure; i would love to sound like that.

    my favorite comment from that essay? this one: “made up writing = bad writing…. no way she said “namaste” in that situation in the end… what is this a comedy?”

    commenter: the “made up writing” you refer to has a catchier name: it’s called “fiction.” and last i checked, it wasn’t considered “bad writing,” although certainly some fiction is of poor quality. Someone should maybe clue Barnes + Noble into the fact that they have entire huge sections of their store devoted to bad writing. whoops!

    and this is why i get scared to promote myself or “get bigger” in an audience way: total nutters. there’s no way to control how your post on enchiladas gets comment-morphed into a screaming political statement if you have 398,940,282 fans. So, SEO? Shmess-E-O. I’ll stick with keeping my operation lo-fi. 🙂

    also, are these cookies supposed to be some sort of statement on how the U.S. can’t seem to get control of things?? IS THIS ABOUT THE SHUTDOWN?!?! IS THAT OOZING CARAMEL SUPPOSED TO SYMBOLIZE THE SANITY OF CONGRESS OOZING OUT OF THEIR HEADS?!?!?! wait…is this about immigration?!?!?! ARE THESE MELTING POT COOKIES!?!?!

    just kidding. 🙂

    • movita beaucoup October 6, 2013 at 10:29 am #

      Right?!?! I loved how so many of the commenters tried to help people understand the meaning of satire. And then another person would be all: I’m gluten intolerant! I HAVE TO SHOP AT WHOLE FOODS!

      Also, yes. These cookies are a statement on your American political situation. The statement is: eat these cookies and GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER!

  33. Sandra R October 5, 2013 at 5:13 pm #

    I agree that the interwebs needs to be protected from mean people. I also agree that too much of anything is too much (except those cookies of course). After I figured out email, and got an email address, (or two) I realized I can barely keep up with that!!! No Facebook for me. and Pinintererest or whatever lasted about two minutes, when I realized they were pictures of food and NO RECIPES. At least sometimes. So not worth my time. I am in favor of limiting our technological time sinks to our level of tolerance. But you definite make my list.

    And these cookies, I could use these. There is nothing better than really dark chocolate with caramel. Match made in heaven. And unwrapping caramels and it taking forever. I know…it’s never-ending. Your part about mise en place in the recipe. I swear I want to start including that. I take nothing for granted anymore. If I don’t say banana, peeled. Someone puts the whole thing in the blender. True story. I need these cookies. Pinned!

      Just picture me in a cat costume.

      That’s basically how I roll.

    Oh my, these cookies look like from heaven !

    Cookies for interweb-peace!! I agree 110% (shocking, I know). More cats and less stupidity. Who cares if Miley wants to swing around naked!? I saw that essay and I died over it because it’s so hilarious. And if Facebook is really keepin’ ya down then GET THE EFF OFF OF FACEBOOK! Right?

    I want to make these, but I still haven’t made those marshmallow bars yet. I’ve been on a baking hiatus sortof. I need one weekend to BAKE ALL THE THINGS. (Unless you just want to mail me some… /hint hint)

      Dear Natalie,

      Please stop watching Miley for a few minutes and bake the things.

      Sincerely,
      movita beaucoup

    Now I’m a little sad I just made chocolate cookies with white chocolate chips…these look WAY better!!

    • movita beaucoup October 10, 2013 at 8:25 am #

      Lily, I’m sure your cookies were almost as good as these.

      {tee hee!}

    The other day I bought a huge tub of cocoa and a bag of chocolate chips. I baked a disappointing batch of plain chocolate chip cookies so I love that I’ve stumbled across this new recipe. Thanks!

    • movita beaucoup October 10, 2013 at 8:25 am #

      You are most welcome!! Put that cocoa to good use!

  42. catherinecuisine October 10, 2013 at 8:19 am #

    I love Kraft caramels! Wonderful recipe 🙂

    • movita beaucoup October 10, 2013 at 8:25 am #

      Me too! I could eat them by the bucketful…

    Am I in cookie heaven? Because it’s so beautiful here! Swooning and needing some of these cookies!

    • movita beaucoup October 13, 2013 at 9:08 am #

      Yes, you are in Cookie Heaven. Welcome. We’ve been expecting you…

    After working for a Naturopath doctor for several years…I LOVED the “Surviving Whole Foods” article. It made me laugh out loud and pretty much made my morning. People who aren’t in tune with the Naturopathic world and allergen world, have no idea how true that article really is.

    As I sit here this morning, once again playing catch up on my blog reading, I’m reminded once again how much I adore your writing. And THOSE cookies! I’m eating left over shrimp stir fry for breakfast and I’m thinking one (or three) of those cookies would have been perfect for my breakfast dessert.

    ~ April 🙂

    • movita beaucoup October 13, 2013 at 9:10 am #

      Awwww, shucks, April! Thanks for sayin’ that!

      Also, I’m so glad to hear someone else has breakfast dessert. Because SOME people say it’s not a thing.

  45. glutenfreezen October 11, 2013 at 9:09 am #

    Oh yes, and my husband also calls it the “interwebs”. Who knew there more like him?

  46. Maureen | Orgasmic Chef October 11, 2013 at 9:58 am #

    Gorgeous cookies, I hate that it took me this long to see them!

  47. Denise Ross October 12, 2013 at 1:10 pm #

    Could I use those little Caramel Bites that they sell in a bag for this recipe? Maybe just a few in the cookie in place of the caramel wrapped ones?

    • movita beaucoup October 12, 2013 at 4:39 pm #

      Probably, Denise! I’m sure Rolos, for example, would be great! If you try it, lemme know how it works out… good luck!

  48. jingersnaps October 14, 2013 at 12:30 pm #

    I am right with you. And I want to eat about 20 of those cookies all by myself.

  49. Sue October 22, 2013 at 4:06 pm #

    These cookies are phenonmenal! I made mine using homemade caramels coated in dark chocolate so my version was triple chocolate. Hands down the best chocolate cookie I’ve ever had. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  50. emma October 24, 2013 at 9:34 am #

    Britney is so kickass.

  51. elizabeth October 24, 2013 at 7:17 pm #

    Great, now I will be craving these for the rest of the day ~ These look amazing!

  52. shazia November 10, 2013 at 12:37 pm #

    love these, can’t wait to try them out! what type of cocoa did you use? Will hersheys brand work as well?

    • movita beaucoup November 10, 2013 at 12:46 pm #

      I literally use whatever cocoa I have on hand. I’m sure Hersheys would be fine!

  53. Jennie @themessybakerblog December 19, 2013 at 6:13 pm #

    Guys, these cookies are amazing. They’re perfectly soft and chewy and gooey. They’re everything a cookie should be and more. Your baking school skills rock, Movita.

    • movita beaucoup December 19, 2013 at 6:30 pm #

      Awwwww, yah! Thanks, Jennie! Coming from you? High praise!

      • Jennie @themessybakerblog December 19, 2013 at 6:41 pm #

        I forgot to mention that Squirrel loves them, too. Coming from a man of few words, that’s something. Thanks for such a great recipe.

  54. Sara Freistatter February 13, 2014 at 11:20 pm #

    I’m not sure what I did wrong but the cookies baked so flat and spread out that six small-ish cookies on a medium-sized cookie sheet took up the entire thing by time they were done baking. 🙁 Any idea what I may have done wrong?
