Oh my goodness, the cookie jar has been empty for two days. Mom are you sick? It's my own doing; I have spoiled them and pay for it when I have other projects.
Are you like me? I get elbow deep in a project, look up, and it's 5:00 pm, and I haven't even thought about dinner let alone the cookie jar. Well, mercy does happen to show up. I opened up the cupboards trying to stir up a bit of creativity, and it must be quick. I had all those odds and ends ingredients left over from Christmas time. Not really enough to make a batch on its own. So being a clever farm girl, I started throwing everything in the bowl. That is why they're called "Remnant" all the leftovers. Don't we just surprise ourselves? And they were mix up, pressed in the pan, in and out of the oven in less than 45 min. Quick work. Another fast favorite you might like is Suzanne s Shortbread. Wow, Peanut Butter & chocolate Remnant cookies are out of the oven. I just tasted them; They do the sweet tooth quite nicely. Very buttery, not too sweet. Did anyone notice the vintage plate I photographed the cookies on? I only have two pieces of this pattern. A shallow coffee cup and a soup bowl. This pattern fills my memories of my Great Grandma Coffman's kitchen table on Boone's Ferry Road. It was such a delight to take them off my "nic nac" shelf and share with you. Check out my store I just listed the cutest "pitcher" great for summer bouquets.
Bar cookies are an excellent choice to please all the different preferences in the house. These cookies are brown and crispy on the edges for some, soft in the middle for those like my Justin. This recipe is a keeper. Enjoy
