Blasphemy Cookies: A Picture Diary

It should be well known by now that I love sweet foods. However, they are not the most conducive foods to ingest if one wants to lose weight. It should also be well known that I love the cookbook Cooking Light. Totally helpful and conducive to losing weight. I happened upon a cookie recipe in there, so I thought I would give it a try, but not before telling my glorious friend J*Rock that I would be conducting the experiment. J*Rock shares my love of sweet things, but did not embrace the idea of “low-calorie cookies”. Thus, the name Blasphemy Cookies was born.

Tonight, I have conducted the experiment and documented the journey. Blasphemy Cookies! Onward!

  I want cookies! Lots of cookies! I don’t want to be a humongoid when I eat a bunch of cookies. What to do? Make Blasphemy Cookies, of course! But will they taste good? What goes into them?

Seriously, this is what goes into these cookies? Flour, apple sauce, and brown sugar? That’s about it…oh I smell a disaster.
