First I made Chocolate Banana Bread. Kevin likes to take bananas in his lunch, but sometimes we end up with some that don't get eaten. So when they're looking a little less than stellar, they go into a ziplock bag in the freezer, so I am always stocked up for banana bread.
Then I decided to make some of his favorite cookies for Valentine's Day. This recipe is from a cookbook called A Peak at the Springs from the Colorado Springs Junior League. They were giving out samples of these cookies a couple years ago when Kevin and I went to their Kitchens With Altitude event, which is like the Parade of Homes, but with super high-end kitchens. I'm not a fan of coconut, but you can't really taste it in this cookie.
The recipe makes 4 dozen... I asked Kevin if he was going to take them to work and he said "No. That would be sharing." LOL I guess that means he likes them.
Happy Valentine's Day, sweetie!
