I did it! I stayed true to my spoken intention! I made these cookies, compliments of direction from rockstar diaries, and let me just say, they rocked my socks off. The pumpkin keeps the cookies remarkably moist, and the chocolate chips are a wonderful flavor-craze addition. I ate my weight in them yesterday as they baked (nevermind the cookie dough samples, which were inevitable) so I left 2 for the apartment and brought the rest in to work this morning. With any luck things go well coworker-wise, and I won't see people walking away from the kitchen wincing from samples. Of course, it is me, so thus far whenever people have mentioned, "Hey, there's cookies in the kitchen..." I have to crow, "I know! I made them!" What can I say? Subtlety has never been my strong point.
