(no, I'm not crazy...I know that it's June but I'm running behind again.)
Cookie Carnival members had a choice of making 1 or 2 cookies for May:
Martha Stewart's Outrageous Chocolate Cookies
Berry Cream Cookie Snaps from Taste of Home.
There was a fabulous turn out this month!
Please take a couple of minutes to check out everyone's goodies. Every one of them look delicious!
Katrina@BakingandBoys said "If you’re looking for an easy cookie that is super chocolaty, this could just be it."
Rebecca@Beurrista said "A special feature of The Cookie Carnival is that one needs to bake just once a month, and only if one wishes! A low-key and no pressure type of group is just my cup of tea." - I'm glad you've chosen to bake with us, Rebecca! ~ Tami
Carol@NoReasonNeeded didn't fair well with this cookie recipe. Hang in there, Carol! Better luck with June's cookie recipe! Be sure to read about her mishap...she's such a good sport!
Krista@IntheKitchenwithKrista made both cookies! Here's what she had to say.....
"These cookies are soft and chewy and chocolaty!"
"With strawberries in season right now, this is the perfect "seasonal" recipe for those of us who are Mid-Westerners."
Cristine@CookingwithCristine made both cookies, too! Here's what she had to say....
"The chocolate cookies definately are outrageous. I am glad I quartered the recipe (which yielded 4 cookies) because I would've definitely eaten the whole batch given the opportunity!"
"It looks more like a cannoli than a cookie! The cookie itself isn't very fancy... the inside is what gives it the most flavor. Inside the cookie is a delicious strawberry/cream cheese mixture."
Chaya@MySweetandSavory said "I am not sure the pictures will do justice to this cookie. Look at the one, split in half and see the chocolate oozing out!"
Stephanie@ConfessionsofaCityEater said "The cookies just scream,"Eat me with milk!" - Welcome back to the Cookie Carnival, Stephanie! ~ Tami
Juliana@HorneandoAlgo said " Welcome back to the Cookie Carnival, Juliana! ~ Tami
Tami@TamisKitchenTableTalk said "My daughter and I had a great time baking the chocolate cookies. In under 1 hour you can have warm, gooey super chocolaty cookies from start to finish!"
Adding in one more!
Hollly@Phe*Mom*enon said "If you are like me and love pretty much all types of brownies and have ever wondered what it would be like to have one with all your favorite aspects rolled in to one - this is your cookie."
Thank you! Thank you! to everyone who participated this month!

****Exciting News for Summer!***
Since many of us have kids who love to bake with us, I've decided to include a "kid friendly" recipe, along with a regular monthly cookie recipe, during the months of June, July and August! If you would like to include a picture of your child with their cookies, I will include it, too!
I realize that not everyone is celebrating summer vacation in their parts of the world like we are here in the US, but I hope that you will join in on the fun with us anyway!
Even if you're just a kid at heart, everyone is welcome to make one or both cookies each month!
Keep an eye out in your inbox.... June's cookie recipes are on the way!!
