Cookie Interlude (What? Again?!?)

Yes, again with the ginger lemon creams! Remember, I said I wanted these to be my snack cookies, so I'll be baking them fairly often. That is not the reason for this post. The reason for this post is to mention the fact that I'm baking a new batch to take home to San Antonio with me next week. My oldest niece is graduating high school (boy she and her mother are getting old) and I wanted to have something to share at the celebratory bar-b-cue. What would be better than the ginger lemon creams?

To be honest, though, I'm tempted to try to bake something there as well. Nothing too involved – maybe an apple pie or something. That's the exhibitionist in me talking. The reality of the situation is that I haven't cooked in that kitchen in such a long time and I'm not sure how my older sister has it stocked for baking essentials. Plus it's an electric oven and I'm not a fan of electric ovens.Still, the temptation is great and I may give in regardless.

So, I've made some additions to a baking music play list I have on iTunes and it's time to get busy! Oh, and I've made some refinements to the recipe, so we'll see how they turn out.

Currently listening to: "High Gear" by Neil Larsen



  1. I’m sure they will be thrilled with the gift your signature ginger lemon creams! I hope you decide to cook something while you are there. I want to hear the stories/memories that the experience will evoke!

    Thanks for sharing your current music selection (somehow missed Larsen along the way—liked it). I read in another post about your memory of listening to your father’s music selection while he baked—it is cool to see the influence of that memory coming out in your own baking routine.

    1. Thanks for your kind words and votes of confidence Elizabeth! I'll definitely be posting about the experience (especially since my brother will be handling the bar-b-cue...and he's good)! With regards to baking, I'm pretty sure I'll be able to pull something together while I'm there.

  2. And a good time was had by all!! Yes, yes it was! I (as I am sure everyone was) was missing Mama.:( But her spirit was there with the laughter and enjoying the company and excellent food! It was off the chizang!
