Food and photos on Wednesday feels like an instant pick-me-up. Hope it works for you, too!
This is peanut-butter-chocolate-chip-bacon cookie dough. Original recipe is Barefoot Contessa (but no bacon: Barefoot just does PB and chocolate). I was feeling down, so I thought I would make the cookies irrationally decadent.
My husband’s first reaction was, “They are…interesting.” When I went and flung myself on the bed (the cookies weren’t the only irrational thing in the house last night) he recanted and said they were delicious, but they just had to grow on you. I admit that mixing savory and sweet is always a gamble.
I hope you enjoy the gratuitous pumpkin appearance.
You’ll notice that these bad boys look pretty milk toast…until you bite in and get a smoky flavor. When I had a warm one from the oven, the taste made me want to throw some sea salt on top, and maybe a dollop of cream!
Any weird flavor combos that have piqued your interest lately??
