Completely raw in the middle!!!! This was to no fault but my own, I knew I should have done a toothpick test before removing them from the oven.......lesson learned. Luckily there were two that survived and we enjoyed them for breakfast. I was happy to find that the dried fruit worked great and during the baking process became soft and plump again.
Onto Black & White Cookies, http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/106171. I have had this cake like cookies several times so I decided to give it a whirl. No problems to speak of while putting them together. The batter was a pretty yellow which was very thick and cake like.
The cookies baked up beautifully. The only thing I will do different next time is to flatten the raw dough out a bit more before baking. These cookies did not spread very much and I think by doing this it will create a flatter cookie.
The frosting was tasty as well and very simple to make. Next time I will add less water make it a little thicker as to avoid dripping.
I took these tasty treats over to the Gilbertson's for friends to enjoy. Unfortunately some of the frosting was "damaged" in the transport, but none the less they were enjoyed by all. We had a great Sunday afternoon chatting and watching football.
I did not have a chance today to sit down and plan out our weekly menu's but will get to it tomorrow. I am thinking of making roasted chicken, since I have two whole chickens in the fridge now, and maybe chicken and dumplings.......I wonder if Peter will eat chicken and dumplings. I think it is worth a shot, I am still feeling victorious over the meatloaf from last week!
