Flu Fighter Cookies!
When I saw the recipe for these immunity-boosting Flu Fighter cookies in the October issue of food network magazine I knew I wanted to try them. And try them I did. The process left me thinking I might actually prefer getting the flu "Drop heaping tablespoonfuls of batter onto the prepared baking sheets . . . and chill for 30 minutes. Meanwhile preheat the oven to 375 degrees".
ARE YOU KIDDING ME!! I've already preheated the oven AND I'm supposed to leave for dinner in 30 minutes! You've probably already guessed that I didn't read through the recipe before I started. Come on now, I've made cookies a MILLION times what's the big deal??? I broke RULE #1: ALWAYS read the ingredient list AND the directions before starting.
The cookies came out great and are full of powerful ingredients to help fight off the flu. I have to say they are worth the extra effort, just be sure to plan ahead when making these. You can make the dough and refrigerate it overnight if you need too -- that's exactly what I did!
