  • did you know that today (4th December) is...

    ...National Cookie day. This is one I can completely embrace. I love eating sweet biscuits/cookies... a little too much love at times. One biscuit is never enough per cup of coffee. At this time of year I particularly love gingerbread and I make a double batch of the dough and divide into four... cook one and freeze the other three.

    Interesting facts: The English word “cookie” is derived from the Dutch word “koekie” meaning little cake. In most English-speaking countries outside of North America, the most common word for cookie is “biscuit.”

    Are you baking cookies to share at Christmas?
    I love my computer because all my friends live inside it!

    Ah yes, but the problem is not eating them. I love my molasses cookies and sugar cookies, frosted or plain. The aroma gets me every time coming out of the oven. Once the aroma is gone I do better but that can take a long time. So many kinds, so good.
    Heritic, rebel, a thing to flount,
    He drew a circle that shut me out.
    But love and I had the wit to win,
    We drew a circle that took him in.

        I’ll be starting on my Bourbon Oatmeal Cookies next week. These are the only cookies that my friends and family want, so I imagine I’ll be making about 30 dozen or so. My hair dresser will get 6 dozen!
