These cookies have magic powers. Not only are they flat out delicious but they give their baker the power of bravery and will make the person the baker gives them to fall madly in love with them. That’s right, these cookies are dangerous. You’ve been warned.
I’ve actually mentioned these cookies long ago in the infancy period of my blogging days, long before I was snapping shots of dinner before we get to sit and enjoy it, so I feel it’s ok to feature these little magic little morsels again.
Long before Handsome and I were aspiring to be the Marlborough Man and Pioneer Woman we had our rough spots. We actually had been together and split up and moved on with our lives. The problem was, we still had to interact with one another and our parents had to interact with one another.
Rule #1. Never date your the man with keys to your business, your home, your bosses home… you get the idea. In other words, don’t date your contractor.
Time went on though and I was baking these cookies and that’s when I discovered how the combination of cookie, cranberry, and white chocolate is a powerful undocumented ancient spell. With a little push and bag of fresh from the oven cookies in hand, I found myself at the job site where Handsome was currently working, knocking on the door.
The rest is well… history.
We may not have a ranch and cattle but our heard of three pets and our herb garden are close enough for now.
