TWD: Chocolate Chunkers

Or rather, Triple Chip and Whatever Nuts Are In the Pantry Chocolate Chunkers. I think Dorie's title is a bit better, you know, being succinct is a good thing. Once again, the weekend got away from me, but for good reason. We were celebrating Glenn's birthday, so I suppose it is okay. Now it is Monday (as I am writing this post) and I completely forgot TWD was tomorrow. How is it possible I forget these things when I do them every week?

We're leaving for Florida this Thursday night so we have been holding off on grocery shopping because inevitably everything we buy would be bad by the time we got back on Sunday. So for this TWD, instead of going to the store and buying the appropriate ingredients, I decided to screw it and make do with what I had in the pantry and fridge. Lo and behold, I give you a chocolate cookie packed with peanut butter chips, white chocolate chips, chocolate chips, chopped hazelnuts, chopped pecans, and chopped walnuts. Who cares if all of that doesn't go together. They smell good.

For once my cookies came out somewhat like the picture in the book. Hooray! I have fat little chubby cookies at last! This was another quick and easy recipe chosen this week by Claudia of Fool for Food and I really enjoyed it. I like when I can come home from work and just throw together a batch of yummy sweetness at a moment's notice. This week's TWD in one word: chunky

pantry cookies is the perfect name for these - better than dump cookies!

Haha - I agree - who cares if they don't go together if it smells good!
