Hello everyone, hope you enjoyed your Valentine's weekend. I sure did, my sweet Boo surprised me with a trip to the spa, a home cooked meal of lobster and steak, complete with roses and candles set fireside. He's a total dreamboat!
The weather here has been amazing, sorry to the rest of the country who is suffering from another winter vortex. I promise you if you make these cookies they will warm you right up. The original recipe came up on my Pinterest feed and I was instantly smitten. They were added to the top of "make me right now" list.
If you been following this blog you know my obsession with combining savory and sweet elements. You can see that HERE, HERE, and HERE. And now I introduce you to the Chocolate Thyme Cookie...
This recipe did not disappoint, I'm already considering adding them to the Christmas cookie list; they're kind of a big deal! The thyme adds a slightly earthy undertone to the dark chocolate and sweet brown sugar, I'm totally in love with them.
So soft and delicious...consider making these for your next party or to bring you out of the winter blues.
I'm linking up with the talented ladies that are hosting Best of the Nest. Be sure to check them out, here, here, here, and here.
