Have I ever told you folks why I bake? I bake because it’s how I deal with stress. It’s funny, you’d think that if I had all the time in the world, I would bake more. That’s actually when I bake the least. Now that I’ve graduated, I’ve had a bit of a hard time trying to find a job. With a degree under my belt, I was gung-ho about becoming a real, live, paid translator. But alas, everybody needs 3-5 years experience and frankly, I’m fresh out of university and I’ve only got about a year or two’s worth. So all this running around trying to find work is making me feel a might stressed, so I bring you cookies! These were inspired by Accidentally Domesticated’s post on Dark Chocolate Cookies. Her cookies looked so freaking good I had to try a batch myself. These cookies are almost like brownies, except with lovely surprise pockets of salty goodness.
