X’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is one of those recipes that I’ve asked for a dozen times but never got. And then I did this person a favour and they gave it to me as a gift! 🙂 I’m seriously amazed at how people guard their recipes so carefully! I mean, really! Why?? No one reads this blog anyway,…

Flourless Brownie Cookies

This cookie originally started off as being those dark black cookies by Jim Lahey. But then morphed into something else. Everyone loved them. And so I’m sticking to this recipe.
