Aut facere aut mori | Spritz Cookies

Welcome back, all five of you who read GG: did you notice that things have changed?

The new motto is “aut facere aut mori,” which I translate from Latin to English as “make or die” or “do or die.”

Banana Cookies

If a recipe has a superlative adjective in the title, I raise my eyebrows.  Calling something the “best,” “last you’ll ever need,” “fudgiest,” etc., is a matter of opinion.

Crustuli delectamentissimus sunt.

That photo couldn’t be more staged if I tried (and I tried to take a neat photo for once!).

Vice Cream Cake

Ice cream cake is simple: cookie crumbles, ice cream, and syrup and/or preserves.

Remember when cookie used to be spelled “cooky?”  I wasn’t alive then, but I read my mom’s copy of Ginny’s Baby-sitting Business (Catherine Woolley, 1969) in 2001, and there it was, “cooky” instead of cookie. Read more →

Cream Cheeze Cutouts

I did it.  Finally, I have made vegan and gluten-free version of Cream Cheese Cutouts that tastes good, rolls properly, and bakes up soft and slightly puffy, just like I remembered.  Why the spelling differences?  Mine are Cream Cheeze Cutouts due to fake animal products; Ownie Mom’s are Cream Cheese Cutouts, since hers are traditional wheat flour, egg, and dairy, etc.

Ginger Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ginger Orange Booze Cookies, that is.  While I had real ginger in the house, and could have coloured them orange with real turmeric root, I followed TC’s suggestion and made a ginger liqueur and triple sec chocolate chip cookie.  Sweetened with agave, vegan, gluten-free, slow-food, housemade, local… No, I’m not trying to up my SEO. I’m being ironic.
