Cookbook In the Spotlight

I'm going to be starting a new feature - Cookbook In The Spotlight. I started this blog for the purpose of using the cookbooks that I've collected over the years. I have certainly succeeded on that front - before September my collection was barely used and almost 175 posts later, I'd say I'd definitely gotten into the habit of using cookbooks and not just looking at them.

Unfortunately, planning and preparing for all of this cooking is time consuming. I also have a 2-year-old son, a husband and a full-time job that require my time and attention. So I haven't been able to spend as much time as I'd like to spend discussing the actual cookbooks. I think this is important since I highly encourage the love and enjoyment of cookbooks. It would be a sad day for me if the cookbook industry dried up and I could no longer purchase my drug of choice and instead had to strain my eyes trolling the internet for recipes (not that I don't dabble in that activity a bit as it is).

So I'll still be posting recipes Monday thru Friday but look for this new feature on the weekends.

I just made your thin cookies from April 2. These are great. I used margerine (but omitted the milk) and did not chill any and they turned out just right. They didn't flatten as your picture showed. I have found that butter tends to flatten SO easily. Oddly enough, there is only one cookie that I MUST make with butter. Anyway, thanks for the great recipe!
