Over a Cup: More cookies
Yesterday, when it was storming, I baked my favorite cake, a banana cake, and the house was filled with a wonderful aroma. Later, I baked a pizza from scratch.
‘Tis the season for baking, so this week’s column features two more cookie (bar) recipes. The recipes come from “Our Best Cookie Recipes,” the cookbook I used last week. It was published a long time ago by Swift & Company and written by Martha Logan.
