I must say I am loving the color which seems to fluctuate between brown and deep plum depending on the light, as well as working with this yarn on size 8 needles. There is something about the needles sizes 6-8. They just seem to be super comfortable in my hand. Sort of like I am hanging with an old friend. I like that.
We also made these cookies, twice to be exact. I knew they were a must after seeing Alicia's. They may be the most delicious crisp and airy cookie I have ever eaten. A couple of things to be noted about the recipe. It calls for a good quality white chocolate bar. Not the white chocolate chips. Well, the only thing I had was a bag (I used half) of the white chocolate chips. I can't believe that these cookies can actually get any better.
I also found out (simply by forgetting) that there is no need to flatten each ball. They turn out exactly the same either way. I did find that they came off the cookie sheet easier if left to cool for a few minutes first.
Do you see that? That silver thing up there?! My new favorite kitchen tool. A mini ice cream scoop made just for cookies! How (and why?!) in the world did I live without it?
I'll be back tomorrow... I have a book to tell you about.
