Sweet Distractions

It’s the time of year when eating candy seems to be the thing to do.  All the cool kids are doing it, why shouldn’t I?  I am, admittedly, a recovering candy junkie.  For most of my life, I think I ate more candy than anything else.  About 6 years ago, I converted to vegetarianism, and it changed a lot of my habits; eating habits and life habits.  One of the things that changed pretty quickly was my desire for candy.  Suddenly my sugar cravings were gone.  And then one day I realized that it had been days, maybe weeks, since I’d reached for a piece of candy.  Though I don’t consume a fraction of what I used to, candy still holds the same place in my heart.  And there are some things that just aren’t worth resisting.  Like Candy Corns.  So when I saw these cookies on Pinterest, I immediately stopped what I was doing, went to the grocery store, and got the ingredients.  And guess what I’ll be doing this afternoon?  Yep.  Making cookies.  And they are going to be mouth-watering good.

The post that I saw didn’t have a recipe, so I googled this recipe from Averie over at AverieCooks, a sweet-tooth satisfying blog.  Here is her picture of the cookies, to entice you.  So if you smell something sweet wafting out of my windows, come on in.  There will be enough to share!

About Carter Seibels

I have a fascination with the world at large, and all of its people. The things we make, eat, wear, discard. There is so much to explore, so much to see, so much to feel, taste, smell, touch. There's much too much to do, to sit around on the couch. I have an eye for color and a sense for the unusual, and I love to travel, to explore, to have my senses dazzled. I gather my findings, the things that catch my eye, here- to share with you and all who might chance this way, with joy and thanksgiving for the beautiful world in which we live.
