We got a recipe from a friend's wife, made the dough....
My parents no longer ate sweets. Or sugar.
I was hurt. Sad. Confused. [Could just a few precious cookies really kill them? Destroy their hearts and health? Who knew! ? ]
Then soon after, some of the young guys who had loved my cookies began refusing them, patting their washboard tummies and citing healthy eating regimens.
My kids won't touch sugar or carbs...my mother-in-law will maybe nibble one or two on Christmas Day. I've been thinking, Why bother?
Then my daughter asked me to make these...from Shape magazine.
Or maybe I can just serve after dinner liqueurs. Like my mom did?
Should I frantically whip up a batch of classic cookies?
Or just hope for the best....
ps vintage aluminum cookie cutters pictureCd are from current eBay listings[not mine]...just in case your mom threw out your cooky cutters too!
