I am a bit behind in posting but have to share last weekend’s handy work. We made over one hundred cookies. I’m not sharing the cookies, just the photos.
With the help of Karen Rulh, our hostess and teacher, I learned how to make Pop Bud cookies. This is a modified Pennsylvania Dutch cookie recipe. Bud, Karen’s father, wanted to removed the fat and cholesterol from the cookies so he could enjoy them.
Did I mention these cookies are wicked good and egg-free? I have enjoyed two, with coffee, while typing this post.
The recipe makes a batch of over one hundred cookies and it would have been an arduous task if Karen had not laid out all the tools and ingredients in advance. The recipe is basic (sour your own “milk”, flour, sugar, oil, vanilla, salt, baking soda) but it makes a large amount of batter, for which she uses a special spoon (must be mixed by hand), gigantic bowl, and frame for rolling to a consistent thickness.
Thank you Karen! Our next lesson opera fudge!
