VenanMoFo Day 6 = Cookies

That Isa is such a tease! Her (and Terry's) cookie book won't be out for another month, and here she is blogging all about cookies! ARGH!

Not that I would get that much use out of it when I do buy it. I doubt too many (if any) recipes will be McDougall-legal, but I'll probably make a few batches of those delicious baked globules of sugary goo for my family. My husband is the original Cookie Monster. LOL

That doesn't mean there are no cookies suitable on the McDougall food plan out there. Here are some that are officially allowed from early McDougall cookbooks:

Hmmm, today is kind of filled up already, but tomorrow after rehab I have no plans, and it's gonna be a damp, rainy day, so a batch of cookies just may do the trick. Thanks for the suggestion, Isa. I'm no longer mad at you. :)
