Guess what? Cookies! [Oct. 30th, 2006|02:22 am]

The first three people to reply to this post will get, free, a dozen Mini Maple Meltaway cookies, handmade by me! And yes, I'll mail!

The cookies are comparatively simple in ingredients, for those worried about allergies. Butter, flour, vanilla extract, maple syrup, baking powder, salt, egg (one for the entire six-dozen-cookie batch), and brown sugar. They are rolled in a very little bit of regular white sugar before baking.

Why am I giving cookies away? Since I'm not currently working, I can't bring cookies to the break table at work like I used to. And me and my parents can only eat so many.

I get something out of this too: My apartment smells amazing, and I am getting to know my copy of Golde's homemade cookies: a treasured collection of timeless recipes by Golde Hoffman Soloway, a book that's worth a hundred times the $3.42 it currently costs on Amazon.

Those sound *fabulous*. But I have no idea how they'd make the trip overseas. Could you maybe send me the recipe instead?

Sure, but you may get pressured into sharing...just a warning. ;) I can also bring a bunch to share, that'll help. If they last that long!

Don't mail them. Are you planning on attending Pie Snit?

Ah, but there will be cookies in the future, count on it! (Or Countess on it, if you like. ;) ) I can make a couple batches for you for an event in Canada, to hand out at Court or whatever, wouldn't that be totally fitting? They smell SOOO maple-y.

Re: Mmmmm

And you would not believe how good my apartment smells today. Apparently maple is one of those smells with staying power.

Not even close...

...to being in the top 3, but if you could send just 1 or 2 to milady Ynyr, I'm sure she'd appreciate it/them. I can get you a snail mail address if you need... But if there aren't enough to go around, I understand. I am not, by any means, among the first 3 respondents, alas.

Re: Not even close...

Sure, send me her address (and full real name, I don't think I know it)! I think I have enough.
