The Season for Baking

I would rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to myself than be crowded on a velvet cushion. ~Henry David Thoreau

With the coming of Autumn, I have been baking. I've baked pumpkin bread, banana muffins, cookies, banana bread and lemon bread just in the last two weeks.  Fortunately, I've had several teens and my 12 year old, in and out of the house, so I don't have to eat it all myself:)  When I was looking up a drop cookie recipe I came up with the idea of writing an article for each type of cookie; drop, refrigerator, bars, etc.  I started out with drop cookies since my daughter had asked for a double chocolate cookie earlier in the week. 

The article has my tips plus a couple of vintage tips from cookbooks, and the recipe for the cookie I made for Emily.  You'll find it here:

Next week I'll share tips for the other methods of making cookies.

~Have a wonderful weekend! Brenda
