The End

by on June 26, 2009 · 14 comments


This has been a weird week, so TGIF y’all.  TGIF. To celebrate the week’s end, I made something simple so I can spend the rest of the day running errands and hanging out at the used bookstore with my favorite kinds of cookbooks. Here’s your cookie. It’s not exciting, but I thought I’d let you […]

Molasses Cookies With Baked On Frosting

molasses cookies with baked on frosting

This recipe was adapted from the All-New Blue Ribbon Cookbook and I chose it because a) the main fat is shortening and I wanted to try the Spectrum and b) it has an interesting baked on frosting made with margarine, flour and hot water – no sugar. I was skeptical as to whether it …

Four Seasons Ginger Cookies

Today’s recipe is from Kristin, who fell in love with these cookies at the Four Seasons Teddy Bear Christmas Tea, and had the chutzpah guts to ask Naomi Gallego, the Four Seasons Pastry Chef, for the recipe. I made a half batch today, and as I read the ingredient list I was a little surprised […]

Winter Spice Cookies

Today didn’t get off to a very good start. Fuzz, who has been sick since Friday, had to miss her first ever piano recital. She’d practiced for weeks and we’d even bought her a red & white Santa Claus dress for the show. But thanks to a stomach bug, she’s home in …

blissful cranberry cookies

I’ve been tapping my foot waiting for the Starbucks down the street to get a load of cranberry bliss bars, but each time I’ve checked they’ve said to hang tight (or something to that effect). I’ll have to stop by again tomorrow (maybe they got some while I was in Las Vegas?) but in the […]

White Beer Cookies

As promised, here’s a Christmas cookie. I’ve waited almost a year to make these so now I can cross that off my list. Plus, I can also say I’ve tasted white beer. Here are my thoughts — and I want to give these a fair review because I am not a huge fan …

English Gingersnaps

I was so busy complaining about peach pie yesterday that I forgot to say this: Happy Birthday Maida Heatter! In honor of Maida’s (belated) birthday, I am going to order one of her books off Amazon and bake a batch of Maida inspired cookies. In her Great Cookies book, Maida has quite a few recipes […]

Ginger Oat Cookies

Okay! Enough puppy photos and memes. Here’s today’s first cookie recipe. I made half a batch of these for Fuzz and her friends, then they yelled at me for taking the cookies outside to photograph. “We don’t like ants in our cookies!” Well, I don’t either, so I took the photograph fast. Thanks for the […]
