The holidays are behind us.

The decorations are stowed.
The non-holiday homey farmhouse decor is restored.
Christmas cookies are but a faint memory.

But cookies, themselves are a wonderful treat any time of year,
don't you think?
What could be better for satisfying a sweet tooth than a cookie.
After all, you only have to eat one, right?
Oh, if it were just that simple!

I wanted to share a new book that I purchased with you.
If you love cookies, like I love cookies,
this book is for you!

Today I made these delicious chocolate cookie pretzels...
a recipe from my new book.

I mixed up the dough,
making one modification....
adding walnuts for Hubbs.

rolled the dough out into a long roll,

then twisted it up like a pretzel.

Crystal sugar and kosher salt crystals on the tops,
and into the oven...

Absolutely adorable, and delicious too.

 Here is the recipe for you....

What a beautiful looking jacket on the book. These cookies sound yummy. I have a gift certificate to Barnes and Noble. Next time I'm there I will take a gander at the book. It might be something I'd want to add to my cookbook collection.
