Cookies

Here are some of the cookies of Christmas.



In order, they're chocolate espresso cookies, mint meringues, krumkake, sugar cookies, sugary chocolate cookies, and benne wafers. Lindsay and I made the sugar cookies, the sugary chocolate cookies, and the benne wafers, and along with her brother Zach we made the meringues. Lindsay's mother Kim made the espresso cookies, and her grandmother Viv made the krumkake. All were delicious. We made some more benne wafers for New Year's, but they're getting soggy, either because of the Seattle dampness or because we used dark brown sugar instead of light brown sugar. They're still pretty good, even if they melt instead of crunch in your mouth.

Those are some nice cookies. We had a few chocolate fig cookies, which Court Pastry starts making in mid-November. So, really, we had a few rounds of a few chocolate fig cookies.

Is the background for some of the cookies a wooden floor? Nancy

The background is Lindsay's family's dining room table. They do have an exceptionally clean floor, though, so it's not an unreasonable question.

Oops, you are still misspelling krumkake at one point!

Fixed!
