Five years ago, we hosted our 10 full-time staff members for a weekend retreat in the country, and I was in charge of the cooking. We were hungry worker bees, stretching our brains all day, decoding the secrets of site design, traffic analytics, and reader satisfaction. Tried as I did to push the healthy snacks on my coworkers, it was a plate of dark chocolate walnut cookies that won for best snack.
Digging back into the archives, I found the post about these cookies with some broken code and one of the worst food photographs I ever made. So I decided to resurrect the piece for you this week, because five years on, these are still one of my favorite tea-time snacks.
