  1. They look delicious and very tempting. Why do I not like chocolate chip cookies?!!
    My family does though. Maybe I'll make them a treat.

  2. Wouldn't you know I would read this just when I was fighting the urge to have an afternoon snack!

  3. Hi Nan
    Fun to have you visit. Ooooh those cookies look delicious.
    My husband loves dark chocolate and I use the new dark chocolate chips. I adapted an old recipe and make oatmeal walnut chocolate chip cookies, but now I want to try yours!
    Our home is on the edge of town,our backproperty line is the county and is on a ridge, with mountain views to the east and the west.Right behind me are rolling hills with farms and neighbors cows. We are so lucky. When I walk one loop on our street, the whole length of the ridge is 1 mile, so I do two complete loops, which means , starting at my house and actually passing it 4 times. I like to walk early with my little cavalier spaniel, right before sunrise as the views are incredible over the valley and the whole town, here in the Shenanadoah Valley in VA.
    do you get a chance to walk on your property? It really is a highlight of my day. Well that and my first coffee and paper reading!I like your new picture header. That should get me back in the mood for reading.
    I am really enjoying your new blogline links. I still have to figure that out for mine!

  4. Yummer Nan, but not great for my hips!

  6. These look lovely. I've had such good luck with your recipes in the past, will definitely try this as well!

  7. Nan, these look wonderful.
    I was going to write you and ask "where are you". I was concerned. When I logged on it never went past the end of August.
    Can see I did not reset to this month. This shows I have a lot going on.

  8. You had me at toffee! Love the header.
