I told myself that I wasn’t going to bake up any cookies during the month of January. Because I’m trying to detox from the Christmas cookie high that I’ve been riding since about mid-November.
But clearly I’ve failed. Because here I am. With cookies. Only halfway through the month of January. Clearly, I’ve fallen off the cookie wagon.
Go ahead and judge me. I deserve it.
I blame the bookstore for my lack of willpower. Specifically, the cookbook section of the bookstore. Because as soon as my little eye spied the recipe for these cashew cookies in the cookbook I was browsing through, I was done for. I ran right home and baked up a batch.
And because I can never leave well enough alone, I decided to dip them in dark chocolate and sprinkle them with sea salt. You can never go wrong with additional chocolate and sea salt, in my humble opinion.
Once you taste these Chocolate-Dipped Salted Cashew Cookies, you’ll be glad that I didn’t stick to my “no cookies in January” rule!
