My friend Gary requested a special cookie he could snack on in the lead-up to the NYC marathon, and so I developed my Marathon Cookies especially for him. Here's what he had to say:
Love love love these cookies. They were delicious.... I probably ate too many but carbo loading was all I've been doing pre Race day..... Thank you again for these wonderful cookies and I'm certain They will make me faster!
Yay, Gary! Congratulations on finishing the marathon...in really good time, I might add. I'm so glad these hit the mark.
And then Skye wrote in to say she baked up a batch of these guys for some friends:
Made a batch of Marathon Cookies for some friends who were going backpacking and they said these are "dlshhss". At least I think they said "delicious"; it was hard to tell because their mouths were stuffed with cookies. Thank you for creating these wonderful cookies!
Thanks for the blog-love, Skye! I'm so glad your backpacking friends liked this recipe. Try to save some for yourself next time!
