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.
