Long weekend goodies
It looks like my tweeting tasty items has paid off. Meredith decided to (not) bake some no-bake cookies from Baking with Sneakers, to bring to Penny's for a long-weekend dinner. Most of the cookies turned out, however, the last bit of mixture in the bowl got a little dry and wouldn't hold together.
Lucky for me, the recipe has some of my favourite ingredients for dessert (chocolate and peanut-butter), so the extra remains will stick around for a dessert topping. Reminds me of the Officer Reese skit from Family Guy where the cop shoots two car crash victims who got one's peanut butter in the other's chocoate, and vice-versa.
It's also the first dessert being prepared in the Haggis and the Herring's new location and kitchen.
