I heard a rumor that our temps may approach 80 degrees this weekend, dashing the hopes of all but the most optimistic that we’ll see a white Christmas in Hartsville.
Gotta say, though, that this warm weather suits me just fine, holiday season or not. It’s fantastic. Even so, this morning’s cookies were intended to bring a flurry of snowy goodness to campus. I aspired to create beautiful, every-one-different white chocolate snowflakes on your molasses crinkles.
I think I succeeded in making no two cookies alike, but, alas, they only look like snow if you squint your eyes and imagine you’re in the back seat of the Chevy Chevette with two or three sisters, and your dad is driving home, up Kinter Hill Road in a blizzard, and you can hardly see the window, much less what’s outside.
But wait… the weather outside is NOT frightful this morning, and the cookies — molasses crinkles drizzled in white chocolate “snow” — are delicious!
Come and get ’em!
P.S. I do realize that today is not Friday, but since the college is closed tomorrow, I’ve made an exception and baked anyway. Happy Fursday.
