You know what's nice? Having a really awesome friend who only lives three blocks away (this is especially nice in NYC) so you can just walk over to her house anytime (keeping in mind guidelines of common courtesy). And then, something else that's nice is when she goes out of town for a week she gives you some groceries that could go bad while she's away (cream, apples, fresh herbs) so you can use them. And then, what else is nice is when you open up the bag she gave you and find that there are also some cookies she made in there. And what's really nice? They're snickerdoodles! I love snickerdoodles. These were made without cream of tartar, she told me, but it's really hard to tell.
It's like a cookie fairy visited my refrigerator while I was sleeping. Thanks, cookie fairy!
Here is a picture of snickerdoodles made for last year's cookie party. Never too many snickerdoodles. Say it again. Snickerdoodle!
p.s. Cookie fairy: I used the lemon thyme on some roasted butternut squash and other vegetables. Yum.
