Today is a very special day. It’s my one year blogiversary! I can’t believe how fast the last year flew by! When I started out, I never thought about getting to this point. In the last year I’ve met so many amazing people… even if only online so far. I’ve made and shared over 125 recipes and made a mess of my kitchen even more than that. My goal starting out was to share recipes that I love, that are simple and delicious. And I plan to stick with that, for the most part.

I considered making a cake or cupcakes as a celebration, but then I changed my mind. It seemed fitting to make something from the giveaway item. Yes… a giveaway! My very first ever! But before I get to that, let’s talk about the cookies. I was curious just how cakey these might end up being so I compared the ingredients to the snickerdoodle recipe, because those are fluffier than the average cookie. The ingredients seemed pretty similar with some obvious differences so I was game. The dough tastes as tasty as any chocolate chip cookie dough. My only gripe about the dough is not being able to use a cookie scoop easier, it gets really gunked up in there pretty quick. The final results… Cakey – yes. Packed with chocolate – yes. Delicious – yes! I like when recipes turn out. You’d always hope and expect a published recipe to have awesome results but unfortunately that’s just not always the case. This one you can trust though. Tested and approved – with a few minor alterations.
