So I baked them a batch prior to starting my marathon on Monday.
On Thursday when I was finished with the baking for church I noticed that the family stash had one lonely cookie left in it. The church cookies needed to survive in my house until Friday afternoon so I baked two more batches for the family - one chocolate chip and one Butterfinger.
I certainly could have just made the Chocolate Chip Cookies (they were completely gone by Saturday!), but I love my newest recipe Butterfinger cookies. They are nutty, chewy, and a little crunchy around the edges.
For me they are the perfect cookie.
So I guess I baked my family a batch and myself a batch.
Yesterday I worked a 12 hour day and I must admit I thought about the Butterfinger cookies back home during many of those hours. I used the bait of these tasty cookies to hold me back from scarfing down the delectable treats we set out for volunteers/staff: doughnuts, muffins, brownies, cake. I maintained a healthy eating day (yay, me!) and rewarded myself with ONE Butterfinger cookie at the end of the day.
It was ever so sweet.
