I love the way these are made and how absolutely simple they are to make. The combination of ingredients is what makes these cookies “bloom” and what makes them a favorite to many people.
I’ve seen grown men whine for more. Gotta love it! It was football season and I had just wrapped up this recipe and there was no better time to test them out than on a bunch of people hanging out for “the game”. We also had some great “game snacks” like my Paleo Hummus and Spicy Kale Chips. Yum!
Ok, so it was a wee bit tense, you know, 49ers and Seahawks. I proceeded to ask the guys and ladies to try these, and in between plays I got the OMG responses (about my cookies) and then the play started and there was dead silence. I looked over and each person was glued to the TV but grabbing handfuls of cookies off the tray and gobbling them up. What a sight! It was hilarious.
The game ended and if you are a 49ers fan, well sorry then, it was a bad game. If you are a Seahawks fan then you were on top of the world. We had people rooting for both sides over at the house and to this day I think it was these very cookies that saved an argument. As soon as one guy would display immense disappointment his wife just handed him another cookie and all was well.
So the early evening ended peacefully and these cookies saved the day. Not the game, but the day.
