I am a lucky person...

no I didn't win the lottery - but - I did win the lottery with my sister. If any of you come here often you know that sister Moon is quite talented in the kitchen, with her skills of cooking and baking.
Well I am far from being a baker with the exception of a cookie or three once in awhile. I had the craving for a pnut butter cookie today so I made up a small batch and froze most of the dough and left just a bit to make a few cookies for snacking. Had some in my little toaster oven and
was on the phone with sister Moon. I mentioned I had to go my cookies were in the oven. "Oh", she says, "you making the butterscotch cookies I gave you". Holy shoot no I forgot about those, they are in the freezer.
Well ya know what I did immediately after getting the pnut butter ones out of the oven. Got in the freezer, found the Butterscotch cookie dough, sliced off a few, popped those sweet gems in the oven. This happens to be a very old family recipe.
Go see the post

Ya see when we were just visiting sister and her handsome husband recently, sister gave me a log of her prized butterscotch cookies she had in the freezer. Now that is a caring sister. Not only that she fried chicken for us WOO HOO!!!
See why I'm so lucky !!!

I read Moon's post. It is so wonderful to have memories which you can pass from generation to generation and especially in a cookie. Thanks for sharing.

I like the keeping them in the fridge - I wouldn't have thought of doing that - and the result is really interesting
