Button cookie, button cookie, who’s got the button cookie?

Just a quick question or three before I find out exactly how easy it is to make button cookies:

It says here to sew thread through a small stack of buttons. Do I use one of those sharp metal pointy thingies? Can you help me with that part, please?

Or can I skip all that decorating stuff and go straight to eating the cookies?

Eh? I should share the cookies??

Maybe you can help me with that part, too.

There are a bazillion button cookie recipes out there. Today I like For Chic Sake‘s version best.

The Cookie And Biscuit Bible



だけど、部屋の隅を片付けていて、 客人が置いていったone of my guests left behind: The Cookie and Biscuit Bibleっていうお料理の本をみつけました。



表紙に”健康食 option”が載ってるって書いてあります。すごく、おいしそうな、 Greek Honey Crunch Creams のクッキーの写真とともに。(ウララー!このクッキー、いつでもすぐできるって代物ではないです。だって、レシピに、Greek honey, Hymettus,は、世界で一番値段の高い蜂蜜だって書いてあるから。)絶対、小麦なしの、グルテンなしの、Rocky Road Wedgesを作ってみたいです。そして、この本に書いてあるbreadsticksが、そんなに簡単にできるなんて思ってもいませんでした。だけど、 the Mexican Aniseed Bisochitos は、外せないですよね? White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Slicesも? Chocolate Blueberry Muffinsも?(こんな組み合わせ、今まで思いつかなかったな。)



この子供のためのクッキーのセクションは、 Orange Biscottiで始まっています。そこから、やってみようっと。

The Cookie And Biscuit Bible

Oh dear.

I finally got rid of a bronchitis-based cough, and I’ve been looking forward to starting exercising again.

But as I was cleaning up a corner of my room, I found something else one of my guests left behind: a thick cookbook called The Cookie and Biscuit Bible.

Oh dear.

Now what?

The Cookie and Biscuit BibleTrue, the cover says the book contains “healthy-eating options”, and those cookies look just as yummy as the Greek Honey Crunch Creams shown on the cover. (Oooh la la we won’t be making GHCC any time soon: the recipe for those tells us that Greek honey, Hymettus, is one of the most expensive honeys in the world.) I will definitely try the wheat-free and gluten-free Rocky Road Wedges, and I had no idea breadsticks are so easy to make.

But am I supposed to ignore the Mexican Aniseed Bisochitos? Or the White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Slices? Or the Chocolate Blueberry Muffins (a combination I’ve never thought of before)?

As it’s called a bible, this book very helpfully starts off with approximately 60 pages on cooking, baking, storing and presenting cookies. There is also a brief history of cookies (yes, the Dutch were involved in all this in the United States).

Oh dear.

But wait! I like this: on the publisher’s information page, the publisher writes


Because of our ongoing ecological investment programme, you, as our customer, can have the pleasure and reassurance of knowing that a tree is being cultivated on your behalf to naturally replace the materials used to make the book you are holding. For further information about this scheme, go to http://www.annesspublishing.com/trees.

Feeling much better already, so I’ll go back to planning that much needed jog. The section on cookies for kids starts with Orange Biscotti, so I’ll be starting there.
