Yeeee!

Ok. So. 2 things.

First, for the first time since I've been married I officially have health insurance. We have been pretty dang poor these past years (not that we are suddenly rich or anything, but it looks like that we might have a dollar or two extra!). So, now I can go ahead and get sick and not have to freak out about dying at home with no medical care.

Second, I ended up not putting up my tree. BUT, I have started baking. I need to share this recipe. It is one of my most favoritest cookie recipes ever! Chocolatey. Caramely. Nutty. Just right!

CARAMEL FILLED CHOCOLATE COOKIES

1 c sugar
1 c brown sugar
1 c margarine, softened
2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
2 1/2 c flour
3/4 c unsweetened cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1 c pecans, chopped
48 rolo candies, unwrapped, duh
1 tbls sugar

Combine 1 c sugar, brown sugar, and margarine; beat until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs, blend well. Combine flour, cocoa, and baking soda in a small bowl. Add to sugar mixture; blend well. Stir in 1/2 c pecans. Cover and let chill about 30 minutes for easier handling....cause you will have your hands all in this! For each cookie scoop about 1 tsp of dough. With floured hands, shape dough around a rolo, covering completely. In a small bowl, combine 1/2 c pecans and 1 tbls sugar. Press 1 side of the dough ball into the mixture. Place nut side up 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 7-10 mintues until set and slightly cracked. Cool for 2 minutes then remove from cookie sheet.

These are so good. I made a ton of them yesterday. We had hot soup for supper and then ate these as we watched the Christmas devotional. It was fantastic! I always make a lot of treats during December and then freeze them for giving out later. Let me tell you, these are just as fantastic frozen as they are warm and gooey! Yum!
