I'm not really a recipe follower.
Okay, truth be told I'm not really a directions follower in general. I consider myself industrious. Some very notable inventions -- including the chocodilla and the dessert pizza -- have come out of my somewhat unorthodox style in the kitchen.
I'm known on Fridays to serve what we call smorgasbord dinners which is basically a hodgepodge of things -- mostly reincarnated leftovers.
Today, I present the melange cookie (because using French words make it sound fancy).
We're talking cake flour, leftover mini Easter (yes, Easter) M&M packets, chocolate chips and almonds.
I belong to the more-stuff-in-your-cookie-the-better school of thought. Basically, I work to have just enough dough to keep everything in it -- namely chocolate -- together.
I usually make about a dozen cookies the first day, and freeze the rest into little balls and keep them in a ziplock bag in freezer.
At first I thought the whole freezing thing would stop me from consuming so many cookies, but not really.
It just allows me to make 5 fresh cookies a day -- which I generally consume by myself.
