Last year Gourmet magazine had a feature article showcasing these trio of cookies. Of course the picture was enough to make you just want them. But I wanted to make them. I thought what a cool gift they would make. I don't know what stopped me. Today in my inbox was this week's Epicurious Weekly Recipe email. And there they were again, taunting me. I did a quick pantry inventory in my head and said to myself, if we don't do this tonight, they will never get done.
I got 'em done.
I went from this.
Recipe can be found here (and the original taunting picture)
This weekend, I will meet for the first time the woman that kept in touch with me all through Cowboy's Iraq deployment. She's the one that sent out Wal-Mart sale emails and coordinated get togethers. Not living in Houston I was never able to participate and I never met her. She's also the one that spread the news of when and where and when the unit was returning from Iraq. I'm looking forward to meeting her this weekend and think that these cookies will be a good thank you gesture for keeping me in the loop during that time.
