I like small treats. Treats to nibble. My sister & her family visit us on weekends, so I plan, every time, to bake something sweet for the kids, and for us. Mainly, the sweets are for us, the grown-ups, the kids would taste a small bite and the rest is ours. Actually, what I love about it is that, after lunch, we gather round for dessert and some coffee, and we chat, sitting all the evening chatting.
I love that time spent with family, those afternoons, rainy afternoons, where we gather for hours, munching sweets, staying warm and chatting.
The first thing that came to my mind is to bake some chocolate chip cookies. I know I made some two weeks ago, but this time I wanted to add some oatmeal and chocolate chips. And I do not need a reason to bake every week the same dessert, am I right?! 🙂
I was happy that day, because I baked different desserts. The cookies for me; my sister had people over dinner, so she asked if I could prepare something sweet for her, so I did the easy chocolate cake. And mom asked for sfouf, to bring to our sick neighbour. This made my day, baking three different kinds of sweets.
The cookies were delicious, they were crispy and soft. Perfect for breakfast, also, and they become chewier in time, which I like alot.
