With two bakers in the house, conversation in our family often veers towards food. And when it does, we come up with our best ideas. This recipe is one of those great ideas- the outcome of our mutual brainstorm during a random conversation that I can't even remember getting started. It just happened. It was meant to be. It was magical.
Some might even say...fate.
It went something like:
"We should put cinnamon in the New York Times chocolate chip cookie dough."
"Oh and why not put some cinnamon chips in it too"
"And let's make them cool whip sandwiches with maple extract in the cool whip." (#definitelyhowithappened)
Things escalate quickly when Audrey and I start brainstorming recipes. You may have noticed.
So maybe that's not exactly what happened. But it was something like that. With a long moment of silence at the end where we basked in the wonder of our combined brain power and sat in anticipation of how they would taste. There might have been a little mourning over our current jean sizes.
