I copied the recipe and Oogie is going to try this out. She’s thinking pecans instead of walnuts though. Maybe it’ll be a regular item at the bakery.
Not sure when, Holidays can be very busy and since the move and newspaper article she’s been 3 times as busy.

Ooh, pecans could be really good! (I’ve only tried the recipe as written; you’ll have to let me know how it turns out!) :drooling_face:

One trick that I use that isn’t written in the recipe is to (after chilling) roll your dough out into ~2 inch diameter logs, wrap the logs in Saran Wrap, then put them back in the fridge for another 30 minutes or so. This makes them more of a slice and bake” cookie, which is helpful since the dough can be a bit sticky on its own!

Yeah. Saw that in the recipe you linked.
May be a while before she gets to it. Orders for pies, cookies, and pumpkin rolls are rolling in.

She uses way more pecans than walnuts in her recipes.

Wait… you can VOLUNTEER to do this stuff?

Which implies… someone somewhere gets PAID to do this stuff?

I am learning so very, very much…

Congrats @peaceetc though for realz. I think. Or maybe condolences…

Thank you for both your well wishes and your condolences.

I’ve been told TT actually gets paid to moderate this place, but she still deserves a raise. The poor woman needs a second shoe.

Yeah see, you give them that second shoe and then what… they want a sock? Then a second one? WHERE DOES THE MADNESS END! (Seriously though most working class people deserve raises when they work hard. Don’t get me started.)

I really do not like walnuts, they have a bitterness and a strange mouthfeel. I always switch to pecans! Good choice imo!!
