A friend sent me this recipe in the mail. She got it from a friend who mailed it to her along with this note. What’s not to love about a review like that?  I had to bake them, so I picked up some instant vanilla pudding mix and made a  batch this morning. Todd said “They’re […]

Last year a friend asked if I’d auction off a kind of “Cookie of the Month” service for our school’s silent auction. The highest bidder would get freshly made cookies dropped off at their house once a month. I was worried Todd would end up having to bid on me, but someone beat him to […]

Halloween Sugar Cookies

Today’s second cookie was something I threw together at the last minute, my excuse being that the cookies would be perfect for Friday’s class Halloween party. Since the party is not until Friday, I prepared the dough, shaped it into little balls, and baked a few cookies so I’d have something to photograph and review. […]

Sugar Cookies

Today’s first cookie is based on a recipe similar to that of a bakery called “Larry’s House of Cakes” in Southern Illinois. I’ve never been to Larry’s Cake and don’t know what the cookies are really like, but these may be close. The cookies are sturdy, crisp on the edges, chewy on the inside and […]
