A few nights ago, Tim came up to me with a recipe pulled from the world wide web for chocolate chip pecan cookies, and asked if it would work. It was from Southern Living, so I gave it the stamp of approval. Wow, I thought, he's serious about this cookie-baking business.
So, I came home on Wednesday evening from school to this.
One gem of a heart-shaped cookie, just for me
There was a whole jar, plus a box full. Now, only a whole jar because the ones in the box have been eaten up. Ahem.
Pecan Brown Sugar Cookies
I was especially blessed, since Wednesday was the day that I finally submitted my proposal for my upcoming capstone project.
And you know what? The cookies were really good. They had a slightly chewy texture, were just the right sweetness, and had some pleasing salty bits here and there. I didn't even mind that there weren't chocolate chips. In the culinary world, this can be explained by salt, butter, and brown sugar. In the real world, though, it's all because of love.
I thank God for my husband, and I love him.
