When it comes to cookies, I usually think the simpler, the better. But when you come home from Europe and your Dad has done a Costco run for you and there is a giant box of Oreos on your counter….you find something to do with them.
My home boy Wayne (Whazzup Wayne?!) from work at 24 had his birthday today! :) and for his birthday he requested lemon something. Thursday I went to both Whole Foods and Safeway and they had yucky lemons! :( So those will come another day and I found a rich and delicious replacement as far away from lemon as you can get! Prepare yourselves, ladies and gents..these cupcakes will blow your brains!

Okay, if you don’t own the Martha Stewart Cookie Book yet (or the e-book, go me!) you need to get it! I can’t even begin to tell you how many delicious cookie recipes there are, aaand they are organized by texture! Yesss..Amazing.
The first cookies I made from the book were these delicious Cakey Chocolate Chip Cookies. And you all know I have a favorite recipe already…but these are seriously too freaking good. They have lower amounts of sugar and butter which gives them a fluffy cakey texture. It makes them feel lighter than a typical chocolate chip cookie. Warning, they feel so light that you feel like you can eat ten instead of five!

Mmm. America’s favorite cookie. And with all the popularity that the chocolate chip cookie has, it’s still hard to find one with the right balance of crispy/chewy that I’m looking for. I also am one of the few people that enjoys a cookie that is not entirely full of chocolate chips.. (I know, I know..weird) But if I wanted all that chocolate I’d made fudge. Right?
