Whenever my husband sees me making cookies, he asks, “Am I allowed to have one . . . or are they all going out?”
You see, the minute I hear there’s something to celebrate, I bake cookies. If a friend has just bought a new home, or found out about being pregnant, or inked a business deal — they’ll be getting cookies from me!
By the same token, the minute I hear any sad news, I start baking. Now, of course I am always hoping for good reasons to bake, not bad or sad ones. That said, even if a friend is simply feeling blue, they’ll be getting some cookies from me.
I try to make cookies that match with the recipient’s mood. I will make a different batch based on whether I think my friend needs some spice, a little chocolate, a bit of crunch . . . or just good old comfort.
I made these Double Chocolate Avocado Cookies for a friend who loves things with a culinary twist and who needed a lift in her day. The avocado in these cookies adds a yummy creaminess and a soft, cake-like texture. Divine!
How about an avocado menu for a casual weekend dinner party? These cookies are the perfect dessert, and below are a handful of other delicious avocado recipes — avocado appetizers, avocado bread, avocado entrées, and more!
P.S. My husband would probably grumble that he doesn’t get to sample the cookies before they go out . . . but usually he does! I swear!
