So guess what I did on Monday!
So back to what I actually did do on Monday. I made some cookies. Awesome cookies. Actually, I think they are technically called "cookie cups", so I'm calling this recipe Frosted Cookie Cups. These are soooo goooooood. We start with a chocolate chip cookies which is phenomenal in and of itself. But if you add some cookie dough buttercream on top and maybe just a few chocolate sprinkles because they look pretty, you'll take these waaaay over the top! It's like chocolate chip cookies on steroids [and who wouldn't want that!?] Talk about addicting - I could not stop eating these. They're way too good.
Thankfully, I don't have to start that "monitor-your-eating-for-a-week" thing yet. Enjoy :)
