Ihave been wanting to get the chance to make something from Joy the Baker‘s new cookbook Homemade Decadence, and when work announced a cookie potluck I knew exactly what cookies to make.
These are probably the most attractive looking cookies that are haunting your Pinterest feed this holiday season. And please succumb to the temptation and bake them.
I brought them to work and they were literally the first to go. What’s great about these is that you don’t have to try hard to make them aesthetically pleasing. You just roll them in powdered sugar, pop them in the oven and BAM you have a fancy looking little cookie.
I am just a sucker for dark chocolate and this recipe was super easy so these will be pretty hard to resist. They just melt in your mouth and a few of my coworkers did describe the sensation as an explosion of flavor and they had trouble resisting the urge to stop chewing.
So you truly can’t go wrong with these babies.
I thought it pretty appropriate to use my dusty, antique end table to photograph cookies when they came out of the oven. I almost feel like it adds to the aesthetic of the cookie, no?
Was I too lazy to dust off the table? Perhaps. Bad idea? Achhhh, live a little.
Since I don’t own this recipe, it is only fair my to lady Joy that I do not post it. But don’t be shy and head over to Amazon to buy her wonderful new cookbook, Homemade Decadence with many more delicious treats and goodies that will undoubtedly make you more popular at company Christmas parties.
