An Old Recipe Refreshed

Written by Ariana deVries on Mar 6

Another fabulous cookie recipe to boot.

It's been confirmed. I really like cookies. (As you can probably tell from the last three blog posts I've done.) I also didn't intend to do a cookie posting spree. It just...happened. 

The other day I was in a bit of a nostalgic mood so I started going back through previous blog posts. I began scrolling through old photos and casually read as someone looking in rather than out.

To my chagrin...several of the photos were pretty terrible. (Although, I already knew this was the case because everytime someone goes to the recipe page a nasty picture seems to appear!) How embarrassing.

Now that I have begun to develop a fresh, crisp, more professional style, I am on a mission to retake as many photos as I can. Which also means I am remaking a lot of the old recipes and spinning them into something even better.


This is one of many. And wouldn't ya know, Breanne helped too! Her favourite part was the chocolate covered beaters. She also tried to eat the chocolate chips out of the balls of cookie dough. Mmmm! (Don't worry. The germs got baked out of them.)

So if you would like to see some terrible photos, feel free to look at the old blog post. But if you would rather not, just continue on to the recipe from here. ;)

Ps: This is what my recipe fail was supposed to look like. Haha! Guess I will be using this recipe instead.
