"C is for cookie and that's good enough for me!" - Cookie Monster
No, this is not me dreaming of delicious cookies that I can't have. This, believe it or not, is a yeast-free peanut butter cookie and on a scale of 1 to 10 normal peanut butter cookies, I would say it's probably a good 6-7. Actually, the longer on yeast-free I am, the higher that number goes. Your tastes become accustomed to less sugar so that any trace of sweetness is pure bliss. In fact, the first time I bite into a real piece of chocolate which will probably be on Valentine's Day, it might just knock me out.
You should see Joey and I eating fruit, which we added to the eating program this past week. We bought $30 of fruit on the first day we were able to add it. And we ate every bit of it within a few days. Pineapple and strawberries taste like heaven. I am absolutely positive that pineapple and strawberries were cavemen's candy. Instead of "honey pie" and "sugar baby" I'm thinking they probably used terms like "honey pie-neapple" and "berry baby". I haven't studied the caveman language, but this is just my guess of course. Anyway, I don't think we truly get the flavor of fruit and its natural deliciousness in today's world. We eat too many sweets, yours truly included, that we are dulled to their natural sweetness.
I am also planning on making yeast-free cinnamon scones and coconut macaroons this weekend. Can you tell that I'm missing baked goods? We'll see how that goes. Oh and I forgot to tell you that I added apple butter into thumbprint peanut butter cookies and they taste just like PB&J. What can I say, peanut butter is becoming my medium.
