I really like to create my own recipes, for a number of reasons. But high on the list of reasons is that then I get to name them anything I want! Isn’t that fun? These cookies are both delicious and my new fave, simply because they are named Fudge Monkey Cookies. They are a cross between banana bread and brownies. Seriously, who doesn’t want to eat a Fudge Monkey Cookie? I do!
Blog posts have been few and far between these last couple of weeks. Why? Because I’m madly working on the cookbook! Stay tuned!
