A Spoonful of Sugar Helps the Cookies Taste Better

Last Friday, Taylor and I packed our weekend bags and headed up north to the Raney Residence (aka Mocha Bed & Breakfast). Something you should know about Taylor and I is that we both L.O.V.E. dessert. For example, last Thursday night, at 9:45 p.m., we drove over to Chick-fil-a at a desperately fast speed to get cookie sundaes. Running, we barely made it past the worker wiping down the front doors before the restaurant closed at 10:00 p.m. Embarrassing, yes. But, so worth it in order to get our cookie fix.

So, back to our diva weekend at the Raney Residence. Out of all the things we were looking forward to doing, we were most looking forward to baking. We took to Pinterest for some edible inspirations, and that’s when we came upon a recipe for chocolate chip salted caramel cookie bars that we could not pass out on. Imagine a layer of salted gooey caramel sandwiched between two layers of amazing chocolate chip cookie dough. The recipe is simple and oh so delicious. We served it up right out of the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.


In addition to these heavenly cookie bars, we also baked my mom’s famous Super Cookies. It’s a recipe my mom has used since as long as I can remember. I’ve always loved baking, and I hope to post more of my favorite recipes soon!
