That was certainly too cute by half, wasn’t it? I blame all the antihistamines I’m taking due to the constantly changing up/down barometric pressure. One day snow, next day warm and sunny, next day thunderstorms and hail. It’s havoc on the sinuses.
Here’s some cookies I recently made for church, they’re all good recipes from well-known cooks. I use a cookie press fairly often and have had comfortable results through the years but these squeezed-from-a-Ziplock-bag Peppermint Meringues from Southern Living look quite ridiculous. My daughter said they looked like pig ears or shrimp. Har-de-har. They were delicious and moist but next time I’d squeeze them in smaller 1-Tablespoon size rather than the directed 2-Tablespoon size.
I also made Sharon Thompson’s Tiger Butter from her excellent Flavors of Kentucky cookbook and Salted Caramel Brownies from an uncredited source from someone who wrote it down some time ago. They look similar and they’re both incredibly easy to make but the recipes are delicious and taste very different. I made single recipes of Peppermint Meringues and Tiger Butter and a double recipe of Salted Caramel Brownies and every crumb of everything was politely but quickly devoured.
