That’s The Way The Cookie Crumbles

December 29, 2015

Is it time to step away from the cookie jar? I’m looking at you here, who has been a prolific baker and has enough cookies to feed the neighborhood, or gain 5 pounds snacking on them. Or you, who recieved an abundance of homemade love in the form of sweet treats.

Why not repurpose them into a delicious crust for pie or cheesecake. Similiar to a more traditional graham cracker crust, cookie crusts are easy to make and don’t even require baking. Simply process the cookies into crumbs, and add melted butter to create a simple, press-in( no rolling!) crust for future treats. Plain, un-iced sugar or shortbread cookies work well, as do chocolate, or gingerbread cookies. Feel free to add a little cinnamon, spice and everything nice to the plainer options if you wish.

For every 2 cups of cookie crumbs, add 3 tablespoons of melted butter and press into a pie plate, cheesecake pan, or even a rectangular pan for delicous bar cookies. You can even freeze it to be filled and enjoyed at a later date. You’ll have a new, almost effortless dessert for a future meal, and save yourself from slipping into a sugar coma now.

The Weather Outside is Frightful

December 6, 2014

The weather outside is frightful, but we’re inside whipping up something delightful!

Why not let us deal with some of your holiday gifts? We are making handcrafted artisanal treats that will bring a smile to anyone’s face.
While the real photos won’t be ready until Monday, here is a preview of what is available, shown as works in progress:

IMG_3269These handcrafted spoons are a whimsical treat to serve with coffee or tea. Made of shortbread cookie dough, the tips are awaiting a quick dip in chocolate, and a sprinkle of peppermint sticks or nuts. Of course you can get them plain, or dipped in something else. Caramel perhaps?

IMG_3261This isn’t a winter wonderland, it’s a pile of homemade marshmallows! We will be plopping them on top of our hot chocolate on a stick to give you a decadent treat. They are the perfect stocking stuffer, or small token of the season.

Our local tasters gave our hot chocolate sticks four thumbs up!

Those same fluffy marshmallows are also part of our S’mores kit. Nothing is lovelier than a fire in the fire place and marshmallows roasting. Our graham crackers are also handmade.
