This weeks recipe was Coconut Butter Thins chosen by Jayne of The Barefoot Kitchen Witch. You can find the recipe after her hilarious and fun post here. Her post makes me wish I had little kitchen helpers.
So, I was multi-tasking big time when making these cookies. Making yummy oatmeal caramel bars, french toast mini cupcakes (posts forth coming) watching Food Network Cake Challenge - the only TV I really watch, and reading your lovely blogs. So, there were a few - oversights. I forgot the cardamon, I forgot the fork hole punching, and I didn't use a ruler. So, I had cookies of all shapes and sizes, it was not the prettiest batch of cookies I must admit. And, since I have yet to try shortbread with lactose free margarine (I mean aren't these really all about the butter) I couldn't taste them.
So, I dusted them with powdered sugar to hide the blemishes and make them look a little fancier - I am a little picky about what goes to work, I have a reputation to uphold! They were all gone when I walked by the kitchen in the afternoon. Didn't hear a peep from anyone about how they tasted though (I need to get better about demanding feedback in return for sweets), but I know many other TWD'ers liked them.
I also packed up some of the cookies to send to my good friend Jesse who is very techno savy - he created the website Walkscore that lets you rate the walkability of many many neighborhoods in the U.S. It is a really cool site and useful when moving. Anyhow, he helped me set up the avatar for the Sweet Melissa Sundays Group and I wanted to thank him. So a care-package with these and the oatmeal caramel bars are on their way. Thanks Jesse.
