A Blog by Chicken Wrangler Sara
Bill, the Chinese student who lived with us through high school has now graduated from college. I drove up to his school to bring him back to Miller Farm for Christmas.
On my way, I stopped at a bakery and picked up some of our favorite cookies. I had asked the bakery for the recipe but they said no. I tried to duplicate it on my own but did not have the results I wanted so I resigned myself to buying them.
Bill was able to find a recipe online very quickly. He was shocked that I had not searched for it online. We went to the store to get the ingredients and soon had a pretty close replica of the cookies.
Bill was so excited that he decided we should try more recipes.
I thought we were finished. After all, we had three different cookies.
But then we bought coconut macaroons at a local farmers market and Bill wanted to try to make those.
What started as a quest for the perfect Cherry Icebox cookie ended with six different cookies to share with many happy family members.
