amazing apple cookies, seriously

I’d like to just say, seriously?!?!

Actually, I’ll say it twice, The first time will be because these cookies have been absolutely amazing, incredible, mouthwatering, delicious, spot-hitting & fantastic every single time I’ve made them (they are apple, date, walnut & butterscotch cookies)…. and the SECOND “seriously?!?!” is going to be because this time round, I didn’t get to eat a single one.

Not one. Single. One. SERIOUSLY!!!! (ok, so that makes 3).

Who does that, who denies the baker a taste of her own delectable treats?! It’s just not on. I repeat. It’s just, not, on!

The thing is, there isn’t just one culprit here. Mel ate some, his grandmother took a bunch to her friends dinner party, my mother took some home, mel’s grandfather ate a whole bunch… and because everyone was coming & going form the kitchen, no one communicates or keeps track of everyone else, no one thought to ask “has Lauren had any?”.

I suppose they all just assumed that I had. I guess that’s a fair assumption, being as most of the time I’m eating things as soon as they come out of the oven…. but seriously? I’m pretty sad about this.

I know I should try & look at the other side of things, the side where if they were all gone then that’s a huge testament as to their sheer greatness… but I’m still sad. I’m going to share the recipe all the same though, just because I didn’t get to enjoy any doesn’t mean I should penalize the rest of you. I’m going to go sulk now….
