World Peace Cookies

World Peace Cookies // take a megabite

It’s November, and in my heart it was just summer. Because you see I learned a lot over the last few months. Like if you swim in a pool and don’t have time to wash your hair before work, bright lipstick will totes distract from the flipped out Dr. Seuss hairdo (hair-don’t). And did you know you can get a Dairy Queen blizzard in a waffle cone? And it was even more than a few months ago that I tried these cookies. I learned that they really do give you world peace.

You see, Nicole gave a few to me. And luckily I put them in my purse because on our way to dinner we were stopped by a train of doom that stopped for life. SO, in order to maintain world peace, I ate one of these cookies. I was mad about that train (since I’m pretty hungry most of the time). But honestly, I’m mostly just mad I didn’t make these sooner.

Oh! So these taste like a salted dark chocolate dream. They are crunchy and crispy and they’re Cindy’s fave, soooooo… they’re obvz good. They are even good dunked in Cocoa Pebble Pudding.

alright, I gotta ask. are these REALLY not supposed to have any egg in them? I made them today and was at the end of the recipe and it had no binding, zip, zero. I added an egg on a whim because I was sitting here with this dry as hell cookie mix, not knowing what the heck I was going to do with it, and they’re turning out wonderfully! not exactly like the picture, but when are they? real talk, though: should there be an egg in this recipe? I’ll definitely be making them again my way.
