My son made a cranberry lemon curd tart for Thanksgiving that was delicious! He used fresh cranberries. I need to stock up on them now so he can make that tart again!What's nice about using fresh cranberries is the way they burst and add that sweet tart flavor.
I suppose you could find dried cranberries without the added sugar...although we are talking cookies, and what's a little more sugar, right?
But fresh ones are plentiful and reasonably priced and you can freeze them and Costco has such nice big bags of them!
black walnut cookies are probably my favorites. i only make them a few times a year if that. the recipe is different than many other cookies in that it uses powdered sugar and oil instead of sugar and margarine (or butter). i don't have it memorized yet and it's too early for me to go root it out, but if wanted i'll post it later.In a way, I kinda missed it!
Maybe this cookie lover should have it on the calendar ... I guess I celebrated quite by accident, eating the last 2 oatmeal and raisin cookies from last week. Gotta make room for DW's banana bread and carrot cake that she baked, yesterday .
Next will be me stirring up some pumpkin cookies (kabocha squash). Yeah, time to get some quick practice in for Christmas. Do you have a favorite cookie recipe?
Hey. National Cookie Day in Canada is in March!
i've heard you can freeze them, but i don't do that. i'll eat bananas even if they are all black on the outside, they're often very sweet and ok on the inside. i don't like green bananas much at all.I have been disappointed one too many times with the banana bread recipe we use.
Banana bread baking is thought of as a stop-gap measure: "OMG, there are 6 very ripe bananas. If you eat 1 and I eat 1 - we have to get the others in the oven!"
Problem is, what goes in with the bananas amounts to little more than what might have been swept into them by a couple of 5 year-olds. No milk, butter, oil, sour cream, yogurt - none of that! Ya know, I like simple-dimple but ...
we are rarely NOT in baking season. in the past few weeks we've made a few thousand cookies, brownies, red velvet cake, frostings, breads, not counting pans of mac-n-cheese with bacon, salads, fruit salads, ... today was making more bread to start and now on to several hundred cookies. i get to wash dishes later. i'm avoiding going into the kitchen right now because i have a weakness for cookie dough and my sweet tooth is telling me to feed it right now... i may have to have some brownies and frosting and pretend... yeah, i think i can do that instead. fake it out when it's not looking......
We are in baking season, guys and gals! You can't leave so much of it to me, I'm too much the 5 ingredient cook.
