Cookie time!

So here I am baking cookies!
After buying all the ingredients,
(cookie supplies add up!)
I started putting things together.
First up was a new recipe,
A peanut butter cookie with a
chocolate star pressed in the center.
The first pic shows one batch cooling,
and me putting stars on the second batch.
Don't they look yummy?
Well don't get excited, they were nasty!
I got the recipe from a friend,
but they sure didn't taste right!
So frustrated that I wasted all that time for nothing,
I moved on to a yearly favorite,
Pressed Cookies. I've made these every year since
I inherited an old cookie press from my grandmother.
And she passed on in 1974! So I've gotten real
good with these. Made one batch yesterday,
and I'll do another today. Aren't they too cute?
And then I moved on to Tea Cakes.
A light melt in your mouth treat! (click on the pics!)
So I didn't get as much done yesterday as I
had hoped, but that's why I start early.
I did go online and found the probable cause
for the nasty Peanut Butter Cookies.
The recipes I found on line were cooked at a higher temp.
I'll give it another try today, if we have time.
Craig still needs to make his famous Cashew Fudge.
The customers rave about it. He uses Cashew Butter instead of Peanut Butter.
Hopefully, more pics tomorrow!

    Good that you carry on her tradition. :)



  2. What Cute-E-Pie pictures of you! I have one of those old cookie presses too, but every time I try to use it the cookies pull up from the sheet. Chashew Fudge?! I'm raving about it and I've never even had Craig's fudge. It sounds absolutely delicious.-Randy

  3. Ooooh yes your cookies, hmmm yummm. I wish your I mean you guys were not that far from me. ;)

  4. I'm in the baking mood too. I tried a new cookie recipe yesterday and they turned out great!

  5. Those cookies all look delicious. Sorry to hear about the peanut butter ones. We have had trouble finding mixes for cookies and stuff so we may end up having to start doing them from scratch.
