6-Cookie Meetup with Mother, incl a Dough-to-Go Dozen. Spring Flowers.

The words “non-GMO” on the package weren’t part of my decision to buy these dates, nor any other word on the package except “medjool.” They were needed for a batch to share of my Date & Walnut Chews, today with a handful of dried cranberries added. I couple days ago my mother and I set … More 6-Cookie Meetup with Mother, incl a Dough-to-Go Dozen. Spring Flowers.

Oops. Peanut Butter Cookie & Rolo Fall Out of Line. I blame cookie.

There was frozen peanut butter cookie dough needing to be used and some leftovers in the Rolo bag put out by Hershey’s. I left a thumbprint in each spoonful of dough, then put the Rolo in at 9 minutes so the milk chocolate covered caramel would melt in place, not leak as happened with the … More Oops.

Ginger Snicks with Molasses Caramel Filling, Star of The Day

It may be a good thing that today I sent a big handful of the wrapped Molasses Caramels to my mother and a few to my downstairs neighbors. Why? All the rest of the wrapped caramels are going to be unwrapped and repurposed. The caramels are indeed intensely flavored, which means that their appeal is … More Ginger Snicks with Molasses Caramel Filling, Star of The Day
