I made the best cookies in the world yesterday! I didn't burn them (noteworthy!) and it was a big batch.

They were so good! I had one, and then another, and then it got totally out of hand! I made them for company for dinner, but both DH and I were eying those cookies all through the meal. Thank heavens they ate only 1 or 2. I would not have wanted to slap the MIL across the table, but things were a bit tense there.

After they left we took the basket downstairs and finished them off. I can never make them again. Never, never, never! So sad, as I grew the cutest little sugar pumpkins just for this kind of baking.

Well, my first day of work is approaching. Maybe a batch to take with me?

Now, so you can avoid this terror yourself, DO NOT go to Canadian Living web site and DO NOT download the recipe for pumpkin hermits ( It's just not worth it people. No. never. Promise me, please!


  1. Oh they do look good! Did you use Splenda? I'm not a fan.

  2. Neither am I, although I do have to watch my blood sugar now and it helps keep my tea sugar in check. I used regular brown sugar.
