At home my poor dog Ardie suffers as well, working such long hours there's barley anytime to shower him with attention. Same goes for the hubby, since we are working separate shifts I go to work 6am to 6pm and he goes in at 6pm- to 6am. So our paths don't cross the whole week. Means dinner for one, which means making a sandwich or take out. No biggy though its part of the job and its just a week and soon enough we go back to our regular shifts.
So why the cookies when I should be sleeping. Well it is a weekend and even though I'm working I gotta have my sweets, also I like taking goodies to work to help lift everyones morale during a exercise week and this batch makes a massive amount of cookies.
These cookies are diffidently worth losing just a wee bit of sleep over, they are the best milk sponges I have ever had. I've been using this recipe for years and the pudding mix always helps make the cookies more fluffy and cake like which makes it the perfect chocolate chip cookie to dunk in milk.
