This child. The one who is a stong will and a free spirit all rolled into one. The one who can bring me a truck load full of joy and a nevous breakdown in one solitary afternoon. Yep that one. Well he thinks I can cook. Pretty funny huh?
While sitting in my dentist office yesterday for the second time this week I grabbed a local periodical and browsed through as I awaited another lounge in the chair. I came across this lady at ezrapoundcake.com and upon arriving home I quickly looked her up.
That's when I found these.
I decided immediately that I would whip up a batch for our Christmas tree decorating adventure later that evening.
Super simple recipe.
The dough was simple and once they are baked you are instructed to simply dip them.
Dip them into this ridiculously yummy chocolate.
You are then you are instructed to roll them in finely chopped walnuts. Which is just fine with me.
What you end up with is complete and utter beauty. Really the prettiest little Walnut Acorn cookies ever.
Then this guy finally (after asking when they would be done only 214 dozen times) gets to sink his teeth into one.
His response: "Mom how in the world are you such a cooker?!"
Then he said " Can I have two more, they are little ya know"!
Could you say no to that? I could not. So. Who knows how many he ate.
As long as he thinks I'm a good cooker he can eat the whole batch as far as I'm concerned.
Try this recipe. It really is an easy one.
Change up hint: I would use milk chocolate instead of semi-sweet if you have a sweeter sweet tooth.
Over and out.
