Not surprisingly, I guess, this morning’s top assignment, before heading out to Julia’s house for Christmas dinner, was to bake some cookies. What to make?
Simple is good. I don’t want to wreck things by attempting a recipe beyond my ability. But I do want them to be special.
Finn’s favorites (until today, maybe) are molasses crinkles. So, despite the fact that I wasn’t quite sure I had a full quarter-cup of molasses (and the store was out), I emptied my jar and gave it a go.
Voilà, step one was complete.
But will that be enough? Too many cookie types may seem silly on a single tray, but are two varieties enough? Do I have enough time to make a third batch?
Step Three. Cheat. Add chocolate to the tray to keep people interested.
Ho, Ho, Ho! Merry Christmas.
