Not Cool, Blogger!

Arrrgh! I just spent the last hour waxing poetic about my time at co-op, my unwillingness to grow up and embrace the furthering of my adult life with my birthday tomorrow and my ability to continue being a kid at heart by living vicariously through "my kids" at the Club, then Blogger decided to go all AWOL on me and delete my post!! Given that it's almost midnight, you'll have to forgive me for this half-assed re-writing, but I wanted to share these cookies I made up for the kids to do this week while they were still (semi) topical! Even though I'm not getting this post out as early as I wanted to (I had hoped to have it up a few days back so that you could actually have them on Easter if you wanted), if you happen to have leftover goodies hanging around after the kids have slung themselves off on their respective sugar highs, keep these in mind! They're cute, colourful and incredibly rich, but so worth every bite!

1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg

1/3 cup jumbo semisweet chocolate chips

Sorry Blogger's being a pain. Perhaps switch to WordPress? ;)

Thanks for the recipe. I had to do a double-take, though, as I read "Arrrgh!" and saw a cracked egg on top of what looked to be a cake. There's no sense of scale, you see, and the crack in the egg... well, looked like something gone horribly wrong!

Blogger has done that to me before, but I found it had saved the post as a draft....of course I found it after I rewrote the whole thing....
Happy Easter

So sorry about your little incident, but blogger normally saves it as a draft. Anyway I thought that little cracked egg was just too cute!I bought kamut flour about a month ago so now I could try your recipe yum!
