More Copycat Momofuku Cookies

A while back I tried my hand at some Copycat Momofuku Cookies. They were, as most cookies tend to be, addictive and delicious.

I hadn't make some since, but this week needed to use up somewhat unappetizing cereal, and decided to rekindle my Momofuku cookie love.

Even with a few tweaks and changes, the recipe still stands up-- and they're a hell of a lot more attractive than the last time.

Maple Oatmeal Muffins

Cooking for three is a lot more than cooking for two.

Especially when that extra body is a grown male.

Yes, obvious fact is obvious, but it still surprises me when I go to put away the leftovers from dinner and nearly everything is gone. When I make cookies and then they're gone. When I made a batch of muffins and then they're gone. You get the point. It's a far cry -- a happy one -- from the consumption habits of a mom and little boy that I'm used to cooking for.

So here I am, expanding our collection of rushed breakfast and snack items, so that sleepy family can still be fed no matter how late we are and no matter how many of us there are. (We all really like to sleep in...)

These muffins are delicious, and a fast favourite around here. I love the sweet maple taste, and while I cut down the amount of syrup used from the original recipe, it could definitely be cut down more. Especially if you're looking to save costs and don't horde butter and syrup to the shock and horror of Costco patrons like I do.
