About this Cook

My favorite family cooking traditions
I learned to bake by helping my mum-- one of my earliest memories is helping make chocolate chip cookies and being not strong enough to stir the dough on my own!
My cooking tragedies
My love of baking sweet things conflicts with my desire to eat more healthily! Now that's tragic.

Frosted Molasses Ginger Sandwich Cookies
I made some changes-- I use butter instead of margarine, and half brown sugar/half white sugar. I only needed to bake them for 6 1/2 minutes which browned the bottom but kept them soft. I added spices (ginger & cinnamon) to the dough with the flour and used a different filling the 2nd time, as the filling (without ginger) was okay but nothing special the first time. Very fun as squirrel sandwich cookies.

White Velvet Cutouts
Aside from the fact that the yield is much less than the recipe states, this is an excellent recipe. I only chilled the dough for just over an hour and that is plenty. Multiple people commented on how tasty these were. I'd much rather make these than sugar cookies.

Banana Pancakes I
I omitted the sugar and added vanilla. They were sweet enough the way I made them. Note that I halved it and only got 5 pancakes (I made them a little bigger than 1/4 cup each, which still wasn't very big) so a full recipe won't really serve 6 people. These are great and I will make them regularly when I feel like pancakes!
