Husband: and I need to bring something
Me: ...like a baked good?
Husband: yeah! that would be great. could you make something?
Husband: oh, there was a request for blueberry and pecans
Me: ...you're getting something from whatever we already have in the kitchen
I almost made plain old chocolate chips (and I swear I'll do so one of these days!) but I flipped quickly through my cookbooks and saw a recipe for these cookies in my High Altitude Baking book. I have a ton of
apples and typically they end up going bad because I don't manage to eat the quickly enough so I thought it would be a great way to get some use out of them.
The directions call for "finely chopped peeled" apples, which I took to mean "as long as it isn't bigger than the size of a chocolate chip it's probably okay."
|Looks fine to me. Heh.|
