I’ve been told that one of my greatest talents in life is my ability to invite myself to anything. It’s true. I have a knack. Cringe worthy, yes. Useful? Depends on the circumstance.
Well, I have invited myself into an actual family. Yes, a family. The Tueller sisters. If you don’t know a Tueller, you haven’t lived. They are a beautiful, happy, funny, insanely smart, inspiring family.
But enough about them. Let’s talk about their recipe. One day Betsy T. showed up at a baptism with a plate of these beauties. I grabbed her shoulder and didn’t let go until she scribbled the recipe for me. Today I make these chewies often.
They are my go-to when I don’t have time to make full-on chocolate chip cookies. How could these be any less time consuming you may ask? I don’t know. They just are. Perhaps it’s the bar cookie part of the recipe, they just seem to easy and fast. Love these babies. But not as much as I love the Tueller women.
