I’m making cookies. Thousands of cookies! 21,600 cookies to be exact. Plus or minus a few extra dozen here and there for a fun cookie exchange. Actually we’re (as in every Clawson child I own) making lots of cookies at the bakery this week. It will probably continue on into next week and the next. Tis the season for tired bakers you know. It’s all good. We’ve got a fantastic system down and we can crank out a few thousand cookies in no time.
I really love Mexican Wedding cookies. The actually have many names that they go by, but the recipe is the same no matter what country your baking from. When we won our trip to the Food Network a few years ago, Emeril made these cookies on the show we were in the audience for. He called them Russian Tea Cakes, but same thing. I made a chocolate orange variety and I really liked them. You won’t mistake these for powdered doughnut holes:) Cute little mouthfuls of chocolate. Don’t inhale as you’re eating. You know what happens with all the powdered sugar around. So enjoy some baking the next few weeks. Boy I know we will.
