The Story of the Double Fudge Oreo Crunch Cookies

It was Sunday, October 30th 2011  I was almost 38 weeks pregnant.  I looked a lot like this (taken October 15th 2011 36 weeks pregnant)…

I was making cookies for a Halloween bake sale happening the next day.  I found the perfect recipe – Double Fudge Oreo Crunch Cookies from one of my favorite recipe blog sites EVER http://www.howsweeteats.com/.  This site has amazing photos and is extremely descriptive and funny… oh and has really great recipes.

I went to the store, got everything I needed, I was really excited because I was going to make them with the orange Oreos for Halloween.

I made 3 batches of this recipe making like 90 cookies.  I bagged them 2 per bag with a little card that had the recipe on it.  At this point in the afternoon I was feeling tired.  But the cookies came out great!

We had friends over to watch Sunday Night football and have tacos (I don’t even like tacos).  By 6 PM I offically realized I was having contractions.

By 11 PM I was really having contractions.  Called the doctor and he said to wait for them to get even closer together.  I laid in bed writing down every time they came in a notebook next to me until about 6 AM… if I knew any better I would have tried to SLEEP!!  But I didn’t.  It’s funny to look at that notebook now and see the handwriting getting more and more frantic.

We went to the hospital early Halloween morning and I grabbed the big tupperware of my cookies for the bake sale.  They weren’t going to make it to the bake sale but I made sure they were eaten.  I gave half of them to the nurses and they loved them… the other half were for visitors I had!

I will always link these cookies to child birth.
