I feel great!

Best. Cookies. Ever.

With the new DVR, we've been catching some shows we normally wouldn't go out of our way to see. One of our new favorite shows is Good Eats with Alton Brown. If you're not familiar with the show, well, it's pretty much the coolest cooking show ever.

We recorded the episode Three Chips for Sister Marsha, where Alton shows three different ways to make chocolate chip cookies: The Thin, The Puffy and The Chewy. Danielle and I both agreed that chewy cookies are where it's at. Although neither of us has had much baking success in the past, we decided to try to follow Alton's instructions as closely as possible and try to make some decent cookies. Mike lent a hand as a willing kitchen assistant and taste tester.

I'm not exaggerating when I say that we created were the greatest cookies ever produced by mankind. The delightful treats that emerged from our oven can only be described as one of the pinnacles of human achievement. These cookies were amazing.

The only thing bad about the whole experience is that the cookies didn't last very long. The recipe only made 23 cookies, and they were all eaten by Wednesday.

I think we'll make a double batch this weekend. If anyone wants an amazing cookie, feel free to stop by.
