You know that person?
The one who’s never met a so called “too rich” dessert?
The one who can eat her cake and your unwanted frosting too?
The one who incorporates chocolate chips into her breakfast anytime she can, always has something for dessert and takes her kids out on Halloween so she can eat their candy?
Yeah, that’s me.
So tonight when we ran out of Christmas cookies – I made dessert.
It was, if I do say so myself, fairly fantastic so I wasn’t surprised that Ivy asked for a piece to go into her lunch tomorrow.
I assured her that would be fine and found myself suddenly subjected to a cross examination on what exactly I would or would not be eating for the rest of the evening worthy of a lawyer to be.
It seems she feels I’m untrustworthy when it comes to desserts.
After the girls went to bed I, of course, went to have another piece and found that Ivy had left nothing to chance.
So I just had one more small piece…
…or maybe two…
If you’d like to try these Cranberry Chocolate Chip Blondies for yourself I found the recipe here: http://www.averiecooks.com/2014/11/cranberry-chocolate-chip-blondies.html
I needed to bake it quite a bit longer than the recipe called for and happily discovered that a few minutes outside at 0° will work just as well as letting them sit an hour before cutting. All in all they were quick, easy and, obviously, tasty!
