My general policy for baking for the department is this: the first time, and on your birthday, I’ll make anything you want. Any other nibbles are at my discretion. (Though I’m not totally heartless; I will consider polite requests. Especially if they come from someone cute.) One of the second-years asked for these cookies with a description that went something like, “My stepmom makes them. They have Reese’s cups in them.” I consulted the internet and found a number of recipes that match this description–the second half of it, at any rate. I went for the one from Joy of Baking because that site hasn’t let me down yet. Here’s hoping these cookies don’t let Josh down either…I sense a “this isn’t what I wanted” loophole in the you-call-it scheme.
