Cut-out Butter Cookies
At the beach!
About this Cook
Well, I am from St. VIncent & the Grenadines which is a group of tiny islands in the Caribbean just near Barbados. Beautiful island and warm people surely make it Paradise! I'm only 21 but i've always loved the kitchen! My favorite department, if I can call it that is baking....
My favorite things to cook
My favourite things to cook are cookies, cakes, pies and quiches and anything else worth trying. If I've got a recipe I think its possible.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Well thankfully my mom loves to cook and is a good one too, so we get together at Christmas extended family included (about 40 people) and have a grand lunch with my mom's specialty home made 'sweet and sour sauce'and her maple ham, and corn pie and cakeeeeeee!!! Yes I looooove my mom's cooking!!!!
My cooking triumphs
I think my most enjoyable thing to do right is pie crusts, and then transform it into a wonderful pie. I guess I am lucky to have flaky crusts and it gives me a senseof pride to see everyone's eyes light up with enjoyment when they eat one of my creations.
My cooking tragedies
Well, I guess it's the only one that comes to mind...when I was nine or so, I decided to bake a mini cake, while my parents were away that is! So I did what I remembered, and had my fun! Come time to bake, I waited..then it started smelling good and I went to check on it, lo and behold it wasn't right (who was I trying to kid!) I forgot to add flour! hah!

Butter Pecan Cookies
Really nice cookie. I love burger cookies and pecans so it was perfect. I wouldn't change a thing except double the recipe next time and go crazy with the pecans. Ps. Got 42 cookies even refrigerating for only an hour. I rolled balls out by hand usinga teaspoonful of dough and pressed into shape with the ball of my palm since the dough warmed up so they kept sticking to the glass. I love these!
