Some of my recipes I imagine and then create – with others I get the flavour idea from some other recipe, glean what I need from it in the way of flavouring and proportions, and then create my own cookie. Early this month I came across a recipe for Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies – and they looked TASTY! I instantly thought about this flavour being a cookie square…
Around the middle of the month I got the opportunity to give it a go – take a look at the results below – it seems this is one of the times I nailed the recipe in the first go. Here are two other bits of good news…
…In simple terms, the way this recipe worked out, I learned more about my base Cookie Square recipe, enabling me to more easily make other flavours I imagine.
…I’ve already included this recipe in my soon-to-be-published baking book – not only do you get to see them here, but you will have the opportunity to make them yourself!
And how’s the book going? There’s still a good chunk of work to do but I’m starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I’m working with an editor — Linda AKA CheckChick.com, who is FANTASTIC — and the writing is better than ever! My *HOPE* is that the book will be published late-December or early-January. Keep your eyes here and on the WIBC Facebook page…..
Scones – I considered scones, experimented with them (Blueberry, brown sugar, and a little lemon zest), but I have decided to shelve the idea for the time being – scones only hold (decently) for 24hrs and don’t travel well.
Muffins – I’m thinking of a variety of muffins. Like some of my products I think they’re going to come out in two general classes. Products that are ‘healthier’ and tasty and tasty products that are relatively no better than other things on the market. Still, no added preservatives & blah blah blah.
Breakfast cookies – I frankly don’t know much about these, but they seem to be quite popular right now.
Granola – I’ve been turned on to this idea. Sounds easy, sounds like something I can express with, sounds like something people enjoy.
