Black beans last week, cookies this week!

So after being asked to eat black beans last week, DD (Jillian) asked for a dessert this week.  It just so happens that a new cookbook to come across my desk today was "The Flying Brownie", by Shirley Fan.  The sub-title is 100 Recipes for homemade treats that pack easily, ship fresh, and taste great.  It sounds like it could be the ticket. Especially with both my DSs (CJ and Eric) going off to school next week, maybe and idea for a care package??? 

The cook book has many classic recipes, including; Chewy Gooey Blondies, Classic Snickerdoodles, Chewy Oatmeal-Raisin Cookies, Double-Ginger Molasses Cookies and Autumn Spiced Pumpkin Loaf.  It also has some very different recipes, including; ANZAC Biscuits, Chinese Almond Cookies, Cornmeal-Blueberry Biscotti, Almond, Fig, and Apricot Squares, and Earl Grey-Meyer Lemon Tea Bread. This book even has a chapter called Shippable Savories and includes recipes for; Sriracha Party Nuts, Golden Cheddar Coins, and Old Bay Nut Mix, among others.

I am leaning towards trying the recipe for either Box Office Brownies, Chewy Oatmeal-Raisin Cookies, or Chocolate-Caramel Suprise Cookies.  What do you think?

  1. I'm glad this cookbook caught your eye- it's one I suggested we purchase. :)
    My vote is for the Box Office Brownies for the decadence.
