Every holiday season my co-workers organize a “holiday boutique” featuring their homemade arts and crafts. The shop is open for a month and is a great place to do a little Christmas shopping without having to run from store to store. Last year they asked me to participate, but I declined. My craft is perishable and to be honest I don’t have time to be baking and cooking all month long.
This year I decided to join in the fun for one day only, selling two types of cookies-Pecan Delights and Chocolate Whoppers (also known as Charlie’s Chocolate Cookies). You can read all about the chocolate cookies here and once you try them, you too will be a fan. Sorry that the photo doesn’t do the cookie justice, but you can get an idea what they look like if you click on the link. The pecan cookie, well that’s another story. It’s a recipe from my mom and it’s become my trademark cookie and the only recipe I keep to myself. If you live in the San Diego area I’d be happy to whip up a batch for you!
