Beets or Molasses?

10 Aug

I just made some spur of the moment chocolate chip cookies with some staples that I had around the house.
It became apparent to me that I only had dark brown sugar instead of the light brown sugar which I have usually used.
I think I understand that my preference has to do with the caramelization that can be seen on the edges of chocolate chip cookies baked using light brown sugar.
I know cookies are done and taste good and the texture is just right, I’m just giving myself poor marks for presentation.

…but yeah….they are still tasty! Nom-nom-nom!

Mini Cookie Cutters Stole My Heart!

10 May

A couple of weeks ago I was invited to a game night where we were instructed that the theme of the night would be “mini”. This of course translated to myself going on a buying binge of everything mini I could find.

Ateco Mini cookie cutters were one of the results of said binge.

I found them at Sur La Table in the cookie cutter section and they were practically singing at me in operatic tones. “Buy us! Buy us!”

It was hopeless to ignore. They had several others but I since none of these seem to be holiday specific I was happy with my purchase. I plan to use some them to make some cookies this week! I’ll post my results when I am done. I do love new things.
