First of all, I did not and still do not want this blog to be a weight loss blog! I want it to be about all the things I enjoy. Which includes….BAKING!
For Christmas. my hubs got me a Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer! Its red, beautiful, shiny, and I love it! I’ve made cupcakes, brownies, frosting, and just today Christmas cookies!
I made special Whole Wheat Chocolate Mint cookies for a virtual cookie swap hosted by She Cooks, He Eats. Such a cute idea! Since I’ve already typed up the recipe figured I might as well share it here!
These are so good! And they are whole wheat, in fact I’ve tried to use the same recipe with white flour and they don’t turn out as well. You really have to try them for yourself. The one thing that makes them better than all other cookie….the almond extract! Which I actually learned by accident! I was making a quick batch one day and I didn’t have any vanilla extract, so I used almond. Completely changes the flavor!
*I should really learn to take pictures of things! I’m great at people….BAD at things! Better do some learning.
