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!
