Over a Cup of Coffee: A quick dinner and dessert

Diane Prather

First of all, I talked to a reader who made the $250 Cookies. She made them for school, so she made big cookies (which didn't take so much time to bake) and left the nuts out since so many children are allergic to them. She added more chips to the batter.

Also, she said she probably would not use a blender to mix up the dry ingredients the next time she makes the cookies. I don't think I used the blender when I made them, either.

This week, I found two recipes that I got years ago when I belonged to a recipe round robin. Both recipes are quick to fix. ‘
