These cookies were an accident... a beautiful accident. The best recipes seem to be the unplanned ones. So fun! I can hardly type this, I'm so excited for a semi-secret trip that I'm taking tomorrow. Follow my Instagram for live action on this event or wait until Sunday when I share it right here. Either way, that's all that is on my mind and I can't focus on writing about these cookies. It's a shame because they deserve as much love as they can get. I actually used this chocolate date sauce from my oatmeal earlier this week as the icing. It was a good decision and I highly recommend it!
Also, this is a cooked dessert! Big news, my friends! I rarely ever make cooked desserts but I was feeling it this week. Why do I never make cooked desserts? I'm not sure actually. They exist, but they're rare. So let's cherish this recipe! Especially because it's so easy to make. You know how I love easy recipes and I know that a lot of you do too. Beautiful simplicity! Let's do it!
