Eleven Years Later
The first--the recipe is from this book. Obviously it reminds me of home.
The second--We received this book as a wedding present eleven years ago. I've recently been making stuff out of it. Hee hee, eleven years after we were married.
The cookie is nothing fancy or exotic.
It's a simple Chocolate Chip Oatmeal cookie. But what sold me on it was the little story that came with the cookie.
There are no pictures of the finished baked goods in this cookbook, which is usually a turn off for me, but the stories make this cookbook delightful.
The author describes her neighbor climbing the stairs to their home (the stairs are a Juneau, AK thing...trust me) with a brown paper bag full of these warm cookies.
Brown paper bag full of warm oatmeal chocolate chip cookies?
How could I not bake these?!
