Every once in a while my sweet tooth will get the best of me and I will crave a dessert without really being able to put my finger on it. Last weekend, I wanted to bake something so a friend suggested I find something to use the Grand Marnier he had bought recently. But when I looked up a few recipes, there were lots of them for complicated soufflés or cakes that required special equipment that he did not have in his basic baking supply arsenal. We decided against baking something and settled instead at picking up a few sweet things at a bakery in Santa Clara.
I finished my holiday baking last weekend, just in time to get a package of cookies in the mail to a friend and so that my family members could bring trays in to share with coworkers during the holiday week. We added in molasses spiced cookies, white chocolate cherry cookies, snickerdoodles, and my favorite butterscotch chip cookies to complete the mix.
