I am very proud of the contest winning Betty Crocker bar cookies. And my dad, who doesn’t even like peanut butter, keeps asking me to make them. Our conversation goes something like this.
Dad: Hey, would you make me 6 dozen of those cookies? I’ll pay you for the ingredients.
Me: Make them yourself. They take 2 seconds.
Dad: I’ll pick them up Tuesday.
My dad will get his cookies, but today I thought I’d try one of the other winners. Priscilla Yee’s striped “Fiesta Fudge Cookies” were tempting. In fact, they’d be perfect for that Cinco de Mayo party I’m not having.
And how are they? “Que Bueno!” They’re very sweet and fudgy. I’m making mine for a gang of 5 year olds, so I left out the cinnamon. I think they’d be better with it, so next time I’ll add it.
