Ugly Cookies

Before I knew rosemary from thyme in the kitchen, I knew how to bake. I love baking. The ritual of it calms me down and and distracts my mind which helps me a lot when I’m feeling anxious, nervous or stressed. Rarely is it ever about the product, it’s a process thing.

That said, there is nothing worse than having a baking experiment bomb so over time I’ve noticed I return to a few tried and true recipes time and time again. This is one of those. Simple, adaptable and I always have the key ingredients on hand.

I’ve called these Ugly Cookies because that’s what they are. Gnarly little piles of chocolate chips, walnuts and figs. Sometimes a little ugly is a good thing.

    These sound delicious, and I’m the same way about baking. It’s a process thing that I turn to as self-care, really. And yeah, I like cookies and have a sweet tooth, but it’s why I never buy store bought sweets; why buy packaged sweets when you could MAKE them!??! that’s the best part. xo
