I  have been on a little baking spree of sorts.  Mainly because the hubby has been gone two weekends in a row.  Last week he was in a two-day golf tournament and this weekend he went to a sports memorabilia show in the City. That left me with a lot of time on my hands. Between That and the rainy weather– Cold and rainy days equals to baking.

I actually feel like they could have used a tad bit more pepper, but I didn’t want to overwhelm the cookie either.
