On gushing about the Peanut Butter Cheesecake Brownie Surprise (otherwise know as the “Best Dessert Ever”), I forgot to tell you about all the other birthday desserts!  You know my mom couldn’t stop at just one;-)

We had:

  • Chocolate and Banana Three Layer Cake with Mocha Buttercream
  • Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Icing
  • Ice Cream “Pie” with a Chocolate Krispie Treat Crust

I was so excited to go back to the shore this weekend and eat leftovers (we froze the desserts for the week), but thanks to a little thing called Irene, we stayed home.

Now, onto the cookies!  For my second month of the Secret Recipe Club, I got Wives with Knives.  Cathy has a great variety of recipes on her blog, but the Tate’s Chocolate Chip Cookies caught my eye.

Tate’s cookies are famous for the crispness.  Originally I thought this would be the perfect cookie for my dad, a lover of crispy cookies.

However, like Cathy, the cookies didn’t come out very crisp.  They did get a nice crunch on the outside, though, and had great flavor.  I actually think these are the perfect cookies to dip in milk, but I’ll have to find another perfect cookie for my dad!  Definitely try the recipe if you are a crunchy cookie fan.

I hope everyone stayed safe from the storm this weekend!
