"Someone once told me that time was a predator that stalked us all our lives. I rather believe that time is a companion who goes with us on the journey and reminds us to cherish every moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we've lived."

My sad looking chocolate dipped orange butter cookies

Today I made some Chocolate Dipped Orange Butter Cookies. I found the recipe over at Joanna's Kitchen sometime in December and I just now got around to making these.

I made up the dough yesterday after I made up some Country Butter and before I started working on yesterday's dinner of chicken fried steak and mashed potatoes.

My cookies do not look as nice as Joanna's cookies because I was feeling lazy. I mean horrifically lazy. I changed the recipe to suit my laziness and because I didn't have any coarse sugar on hand. Maybe I should just turn in my shrike card, get smashed, and start making up recipes like balls of cheese whiz rolled in various seasoning packets and be done with it. It's that bad folks!

By now you've followed that link up top to see Joanna's pretty cookies. Well, you see I didn't shape my dough into a nice roll to cut out rounds nor did I roll out the dough like Joanna did to make cutout cookies. I refrigerated my dough in a big lump and then dug out some balls with a spoon and baked them. I did do the chocolate dipping as instructed. I took a picture of the best looking ones so here are my sad looking cookies:

They do taste good! Maybe I'll put them over by the tumor bread I made yesterday so they keep each other company. LOL
