To a heathen like myself, the holiday season surrounding Christmas and New Year's Day means just one thing: food!

Particularly sweet treats like cookies and cakes and candy and such.

So, armed with a recipe I copied off the Interwebs a couple of weeks ago, to the kitchen I headed. (Is that Yoda speak?)

The cookies I built yesterday are called The Browniest Cookies by their creator, Deb Perelman of the Smitten Kitchen.

They combine a sizeable amount of butter and sugars with three kinds of chocolate to make a cookie with a fudgy interior.

As I commented to Deb's blog yesterday judging by the sounds coming from SWMBO after she had downed two of them I can only describe the cookies as "orgasmic".

I thought they were pretty darned good too.

You can try them yourselves, if you like.

Here is the recipe.

Happy Holidays!


  1. I am sooo going to have to double up on gym time after Christmas.

  2. Yum. Even your picture explodes with chocolate. Butter and sugar conspire against me so my intake is limited to the smallest of bites, but even those mere morsels are appreciated. I'll lobby our head baker to try these.

  3. I love all things chocolate and these cookies look fantastic. They don't have any calories, right?

    1. Nothing eaten during the holidays has any calories or fat.
