Don't you just hate it when you pour your heart and soul out into a deeply personal blog post that took days to write and perfect, only to have it inexplicably disappear into the swirling black hole of the internet? Technology, you suck.
So a bit about me: I'm one of those people who insists on doing everything myself BECAUSE I CAN. My poor dear husband suffered greatly from this while we were engaged. My level of involvement in our pre-wedding activities bordered on the insane, not so much because I cared how things looked but because I am Italian and Italians are thrifty and we do things our gosh darn selves.
Eight years ago I gave up sugar for Lent. It was an enormous challenge for someone who loves sweets as much as I do, and I was pretty impressed with myself when I made it to the end.
I was expecting to lose a bit of weight during the process (I did not), but what I didn't expect was for my taste buds to totally change. Since that Lent I haven't needed sugar in my coffee or tea, and I've been totally turned off of milk chocolate. I'd never been a big fan of dark chocolate, but that changed too, and it became my new Favourite Thing.
So you can imagine my total delight when I discovered Sweetopia's delicious recipe for these dark chocolate sugar cookies. They are insanely addictive and I want one right now. They bake up a little bit fudgy in the middle, and with just a pinch of salt in the dough... omnomnomnom.
