It's National Cookie Day, and today we have a special surprise project for you! Follow the blog below for a special story and to start creating! Let's go!
Today, we are learning how to embroider a tea towel with a famous, family recipe! Cookie Gaynor, from our series "Coffee with Cookie" created this personal project just for you! She even shared her family's secret recipe for the best Holiday Cookie Bars!
"The recipe begins with my grandmother, Blanche, who was notably the first American Women’s Rescue Squad team member.
She loved the recipes on the back of cans and boxes. The cinnamon and swapping peanut butter chips (be mindful of nut allergies) instead of butterscotch is our family flair!
The original recipe is over 40 years plus, and I tweaked it over the years to suit my children's needs - skipping nuts and adding the condensed milk last to keep the layers moist. If you make it at home, use parchment paper, which makes it easier to remove once baked. But it made a messy photo, so I redid them with Pam spray. Be sure to let them cool down completely before cutting. I use Graham crackers and put them in the food processor for the crust.
Wishing you a Fabulous Holiday Season, but do not share your cookies with Taco Bell !
I hope you love this recipe - Cookie Gaynor"
