My blogging time seems to have disappeared lately! I'm making food, and taking pictures, and trying new things but it seems like every time I sit down I'm attacked by these little kidlets of mine. And by the time they're in bed I'm thinking of just eating cookies, instead of blogging about them.
Anyway, these cookies were fantastic! Most of the arils (the little juicy red seeds in the pomegranates) stay together and so you get bites of chocolate and bits of pomegranate. I love it! The cookies unfortunately didn't stay together for me very long. They were rather crumbly, but that didn't stop me from dumping them in a bowl and eating them with a spoon. I'm totally ok with that. And would STILL make them again.
And again. . .
