In the past, I would've eaten a chunk of the dough and a few of the cookies. Didn't even lick my fingers.
I bagged up the ones for their lunches and had them eat one...and we were done with it. No cheating for me! Oh and then I realized that I hadn't eaten my snack yet, so I enjoyed my butterscotch pudding with a smile on my face.
Good for you!!! Wow, what an accomplishment. I have pretty strong will power, but I don't think I could have done that. I love cookies. I usually bake at Christmas and I didn't this year because I didn't want to set my self up for a possible slip.
