You know you're in trouble when your underwear is tight!!!!

OK, I can't blame it all on these delicious little cookies. BUT they have been part of my holiday season weight gain. That and the wine and the chinese food and the homemade fudge and the cheese and crackers...OK , I digress...This is after all supposed to be a design blog ,but from time to time I'd like to share with you some things not necessarily associated with design..Like these cookies from Paula Deen.  She calls them "Outrageous cookies" and I call them deadly..they are SO easy to make and  likely to please the masses.  Here's the recipe from the food network.

Recipe courtesy Paula Deen

Prep Time: 8 min Inactive Prep Time: -- Cook Time: 10 min Level:

Easy Serves:

20 cookies Ingredients

18-ounce roll refrigerated sugar cookie dough, sliced 1/4-inch thin

14-ounce package chocolate mint wafers

1 egg, beaten

1 tablespoon coarsely chopped walnuts or pecans, or enough to cover top of cookies


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Slightly grease a cookie sheet. Place slices of sugar cookies on sheet, about 2 to 3 inches apart. Top each with a chocolate wafer. Cover wafer with another slice of cookie dough. Brush dough with a beaten egg. Press nuts into top of dough. Bake for about 10 minutes.

Silpat , parment or cookie spray work well.

Paula used thin mint Girl Scout cookies. I couldn't find them at the grocery store so I subsituted Keebler's thin mints...they work just as well.  Paula also says that you can use a bite sized candy bar instead of the mint cookie.


Here they are ready to go into the oven. Egg washed and chopped pecans pressed on top
Warning: these are addictive little cookies and I guarantee if you make them...your underwear will be tight too....
