I must be late for the boat on this one, but I have been reading more and more about pudding cookies and all I can say is, “Where the hell have I been?!” These are simply the most tender, pillowy soft cookies I have ever eaten.
One of Dave’s favorite cookies are Ginger Snaps and he loves my Super Moist Gingerbread Cake, which has lots of chunks of crystallized ginger laced throughout. So my first thought was a ginger-based cookie. Checking to see if I had all the ingredients before I started, I pulled down the molasses from the pantry shelf which is a key ingredient in the bread. A thought occured to me of a photo I Pinned recently of butterscotch and molasses cookies. Sure enough as I checked I did have it and it was a pudding cookie recipe as well. Winner!
Needless to say, these Butterscotch Molasses Pudding Cookies were the outcome. One idea always leads to another in this kitchen and boy is this recipe a beauty. I tweaked a few ingredients, doubled the cookie size and used a new “Home Made” cookie stamp I recently picked up to flatten them instead of keeping them in ball form before baking. I added cornstarch to the batter as I have found this to help with keeping the dough soft and chewy.

A sweet, melt in your mou... Read More

The other day we were making some new sourdough starters and took some with us up to visit family in Portland, Oregon. Keeping the starter alive and feeding it is a lot of work. Its great fun to feed the starter a little flour and let it sit in a warm place and double in size. The bubbly, tangy smell coming off the bowl... Read More

A dear friend who is no longer here made me this years ago and I fell in love with this thick, sweet, rich chocolate drink. What made it so special was the care he took in making it, stirring so as not to scorch the milk and the unexpected hint of heat from the pepper completely threw me off. I had never had it befor...
