Holiday weekends are so nice... there's actually TIME to get things done!
So even though I wasn't ambitious enough to make pate a choux and pastry cream... I did bake something a bit simpler.
From Cookies by Pamela Clark, I made more cookies! Snickerdoodles!
The last batch I made, the dough was still chilled since I took it right out of the fridge before rolling in the cinnamon sugar. They poofed up nicely... but then, it was like a cookie bubble. A hollow crater, so to speak. Plus I over baked them. Oopsies.
And of course, since I was able to be out and about, I stopped by Ranch 99 and picked up some "comfort foods".
They labeled this a "Leek Pie", but from what I've always known it to be... I think it better translates to Chive Pocket. MMMMmmm GOOD. A relatively oily pocket stuffed with chives, eggs, vermicelli... crispy edges and a warmed inside. Such a guilty indulgence.
