This past weekend we kept it low key. Don and I weren’t feeling the best, so we just enjoyed the move to California cold weather and enjoyed the rainy Sunday. We celebrated by having a pajama day and baking cookies! We’ve been getting some beautiful pomegranates in our weekly fruit and vegetable baskets recently, which sent me looking for some fun new recipes to try. As fate would have it, there was a very tempting Double Dark Chocolate Pomegranate Cookie recipe posted to MADE on the day I started searching. You can find it here: MADE: Double Dark Chocolate Pomegranate Cookies
Having growing boys who are learning about fractions makes it fun for me in the kitchen. They were excited to help so I put them to use right away, before they decided there were more interesting things to do. hehe! Mr. P helped measure and drop the ingredients into the mixer, which I enjoyed because I hate washing shortening off my fingers! 😉
Mr. O was in the background apparently having a really fun time getting all the yummy “jewels” out of the pomegranate. We won’t mention that he also had a really fun time squashing half of them. *grimace* Luckily, I was left with enough for the cookies!
The cookies turned out delicious! The only difference I made was using all semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of mixing 1/2 semi and 1/2 milk because I didn’t have any milk chocolate chips in my pantry – which is kind of odd considering I prefer milk chocolate in my chocolate chip cookies. I will definitely be making these again!
Next pomegranate recipe will be some muffins! Nom nom!
