I'm sorry I haven't had any witty observations about life to share with you lately.
I'm sorry I don't have any progress photos that entice you to run into the kitchen (right now!) and bake these.
I'm sorry I don't have any heart-warming stories about how these cookies remind me of my grandma.
All I have is cookies, chockablock full of chunky, chewy add-ins...
... like dried figs, sliced almonds, chocolate chips, and oatmeal.
Every time I ate one, I thought about how I like chocolate chip cookies better. Somehow, though, that thought didn't stop me from eating about 20 of them.
Hmmmm... now I'm not so sure.
Sorry readers. Life has been busy. Focus has been elsewhere. But I'm still here, waiting for that full-on blogging urge to hit.
Thanks so much to Mary of Popsicles and Sandy Feet for choosing these make-them-your-own cookies for this week's Tuesday's with Dorie recipe. If you'd like to see the recipe, please visit Mary's blog or find yourself a copy of Dorie Greenspan's book, "Baking, From my Home to Yours".
