Back before I changed my diet I used to be a serious baker. I was always baking and trying out new recipes. Once I changed my diet, my tastes changed and I didn’t really crave sweets as much. I ended up finding my love for cooking. I like creating meals and getting to experiment with different ingredients, but every once in awhile I like to get back to baking. I had been making a lot no bake cheesecakes (like Lemon and Double Chocolate) because they are so easy, but I wanted to try my hand at using cream cheese to make cookies. The results were delicious, tender, melt in your mouth cookies! Drizzled with a bit of melted chocolate is the perfect finishing touch!
