So now that electricity is back, it’s time to turn on the cold oven and get baking! I found this book a couple weeks ago at a book sale. I can never resist cookie cookbooks. Author Maria Bruscino Sanchez is the owner and baker of “Sweet Maria’s” in Waterbury, Connecticut. She has a website, http://www.sweet-marias.com/main.htm where you can read about all her delectable cookies, cakes, and many other baked goods, and even order online.
The cookbook has recipes for International favorites like madeleines, shortbread, tuiles, and biscotti. All-American cookies include chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, peanut butter, and snickerdoodles. Some of the bakery favorites are black and white cookies, butter, sugar, macaroons, and cut-outs. You will also find simple candies, holiday favorites, and chapter on low-fat, low-sugar, and gluten-free cookies. Go soften some butter, roll up your sleeves, and fill your cookie jar!
Thank you Maria, for giving me a reason to fire up the oven! It’s good to be back in the kitchen.
