If you know me, you know I’m a fan of desserts.You will also know that I like to bake desserts. What you might not know, is my method for limiting dessert consumption. Cause it can get bad. Besides vanilla ice cream, which I buy about twice monthly before I feel guilty spending our grocery money on it, I usually buy desserts rarely. I like to test out Trader Joe’s newest seasonal junk item, but not very often.
So my method for making sure I don’t eat only sugar for the day, is this: If I’m craving dessert…I’ll have to make it. When my brain tells me suddenly, “eat sweet thing now” I have to go into the kitchen, look around and see what’s there to make. Cookies are the easiest and I usually have the ingredients. By the time I actually whip up the cookies, I’ll eat 2 and be done. The feeling for something sweet has passed. I’ll pack some up for a neighbor or friend, Matt eats a few and takes some for lunch so there’s not usually tons left to devour.
It can be an annoying method, but one I don’t intend to change. Plus, now I can whip up snickerdoodles from memory in under ten minutes. I’ve definitely got some favorite recipes that you would enjoy as well.
So, I decided to make something for my friends…
