Cooky Recipe Number 11: Teen-Time Chocolate Nut Bars

Saturday, July 14, 2012

Pretty tasty and very cakey...just the way they like cookies in the early 60's I guess.

I've been busy at work but still getting my workouts in. My sister was up in the area (Santa Cruz) with her youngest to secure housing for the fall when he starts college. They were flying out of San Jose airport which is just a few miles away from my house so I took a few hours off work and had lunch with them. It was very nice. They hadn't seen our not-so-new house.
I've got my first 10K race tomorrow so I'll be heading over to pick up my packet this afternoon. My husband is running with me and my brother is doing the 2 mile walk. The packet pick up is at Road Runner Sports so we might do a little shopping and then have lunch.
Happy Saturday!

    Road Runner Sports....oh my! I'd be in big trouble. emoticon

Brownies look good, but yes, cakey as we've discussed. My husband would hate these. His brownies have to be super gooey to be "good."

Good luck tomorrow. I'll be anxious to read and see pictures. Don't forget to knock all the others dead. lol

    Now that you mention it, I think I've known teens who love cakey cookies. They look great.
Fun! Yay for getting to see your sister and niece. Yay for shopping and lunch!
Knock em dead at the race. I bet you'll do very well. I hope it's a lot of fun for you.
Thanks for the sympathy. We're having dinner with Mrs. Criticism tonight. I'm making my sister take me to a street fair in West Seattle beforehand to look at pretty things.
Have a grat race!

    What first got you into cookie baking?

Back in the late 80's, I had a work assignment with programmers in Mountain View. I flew into San Jose a lot. Back then, it was a tiny airport. You had to actually go outside onto the tarmac to get into the plane -- going up outside steps just like the old timey pictures. In the course of my travels over the next couple of years, they started expanding and modernizing it (because of Silicon Valley, I assume.) I few Air West (out of business now) because they went through Phoenix. Since Arizona doesn't switch to Daylight Savings time, in the summer, they were on the same time as Central time (i.e. Texas) and that allowed you to actually make connections for a one day turn around. I actually did that a few times -- flew in the morning for a meeting in Mountain View and made it back home to Texas that evening. I was much much younger then.
