One evening last week I had been busy and hadn’t eaten since breakfast. I hadn’t even thought about food but then it was too late for dinner so I decided to skip dinner but then I kinda wanted something sweet. I asked Vince “If I make Snickerdoodles, would you eat some?” He said “no . . didn’t want cookies.” Good for Vince! But, the very next afternoon, he said “Will you make Snickerdoodles?” I had been working in the garden and was tired so this time, I said no.
Yesterday afternoon Vince said “Would you PLEASE make Snickerdoodles!” There was a bit of deal making so we reached an agreement and I made Snickerdoodles. Don’t tell Vince . . but I wanted them too!
I put about two-thirds of the dough in the fridge and baked one-third. I’ll make more cookies today and take them to a friend. She’ll be happy to get them and we don’t need them all . . but they surely are good.
When I posted the picture on Facebook, a friend from Louisiana saw them and asked if I had a recipe for tea cakes. She said she’s spent her adult life looking for a recipe that tasted like her grannie’s tea cakes. I told her my story about how I’ve always tried to duplicate my great grandma’s tea cakes and I sent her links for a few tea cake recipes on the blog I’ve tried through the years. (You can put “tea cakes” in the search box on the sidebar and find them.) She found a recipe she is going to try today and hopefully it will turn out like her grannie’s tea cakes.
So, my friend and I shall both be baking cookies today!
