Joyous Solstice!

I'm not ready for the holidays, but I'm certainly ready for the days to start getting longer again.
In cookie news, I've tried a new recipe that worked really well:


1 cup cashew butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
a few shakes of cayenne (or more or less to taste)
Ghiradelli chocolate bits

Mix the first four ingredients until well blended in a bowl.  Form into teaspoon-sized balls, place on a cookie sheet, and press a chocolate bit (or two) into the center of each one.  Cook until slightly browner in a 350 degree oven (approx. 8 minutes).

Yum!  Now I just need a name for them.

I also made magic cookie bars (the recipe on the Eagle condensed milk)  I put the ingredients on the magic cookie bars in the wrong order, and they separated vertically, which isn't particularly good for the taste.  (I'm using smashed Rice Chex instead of graham cracker crumbs or cornflake crumbs, the two traditional possibilities for the bottom layer).  But they're still good.

Other cookie experiments, assuming I have time to make them, will be shared later.

Heads up: The "crossposted from Dreamwidth" footer doesn't work right because you copied the sample result rather than the working "code".
You need to put
<a href="%%url%%">%%url%%</a>
instead of
http://www.dreamwidth.org/12345.html

(The %%url%% part gets replaced with the url of your entry at Dreamwidth; http://www.dreamwidth.org/12345.html is a dummy sample replacement, the url of a post that doesn't exist.)

Dang! I thought I fixed that last time I cross-posted from there.

Thanks for the lesson!

I'm going to pass this recipe on to a friend of mine. She's always looking for gluten-free sweets. Thanks!

You're welcome!

If she's very much a fan of spice, she might be able to find a hot pepper jelly to use in the middle instead of chocolate. If not, I'm sure no cayenne at all would also work.

Thank you. This lovely green icon looked great right next to my green words, in the e-mail notification LJ sent me.

Yum! Now I just need a name for them.

Spicy cashew kisses?

Sorry I'm so far behind in LJ, but glad I'm catching up.

The chocolate & cayenne makes me think Mexican something.
