Cathy Mere's March Madness post earlier this week. I could so relate to it. It's a big deal here at home...the games are on and eyes are glued to the tube. Thanks to a student's blog, I now know who Aaron Craft is of the OSU Buckeyes. So it was very exciting to see him make the final shot in the last second to bring a win to OSU 78 to 75. Now OSU moves to the Sweet 16 where they face the Arizona Wildcats. I know, you're impressed that I know all of this, aren't you? Well, that's about the extent of what I know...so you can be done being impressed.
Now, if I was in charge of March Madness, basketball wouldn't be involved. I'd have Cookie March Madness or Biscotti March Madness. I guess I could probably combine the two. Biscotti is, after all, an Italian cookie. I would bring together my baking friends and have them bring their BEST cookie. We'd create our own brackets, have a taste off, and declare a winner. I'm pretty sure the Johnson special chocolate chip cookie recipe would make it to the Final Four. (See, there's something else I know about March Madness). Annie and I have tweaked the recipe from the original.
So, if you were coming to the Cookie March Madness party (I wish I was really having one. It sounds fun, right?), what would you bring? What is your very best cookie? Please share in the comments. If you want to try our recipe, I've created a link here. Try them out. You'll never go back to your old recipe.
