Chocolate Chip Cookie Thins

12 Mar

golden and buttery

Sometimes I can’t wait for my cookies to cool down before I eat them. Brownies? They SHOULDN’T be cooled down before I eat them! Don’t even get me started on slut bars…

These cookies suffered the same fate. The boy and I decided that we should make pulled pork for dinner, blissfully forgetting that it takes up to 10 hours to cook in the slow cooker. We realized this at 6:30 PM, when we finished adding all the ingredients to the pot. We decided to put the slow cooker on high heat, and give it four hours rather than the 8 hours on low heat. This way we could devoir the meaty deliciousness the second before going to bed. To wait until then, I thought we would have dessert first.

Obviously we were starving, so the second I pulled these bad boys from the oven, I grabbed some forks and we plowed away. These cookies are not fat and chewy as i usually prefer them, but they were still delicious! They reminded me of my grandma’s cookies. Crisp and buttery on the outside, and melt-in-your-mouth gooey on the inside.
