Carter likes things that are old (I refuse to use the word antique because some of the items he view as antique are from the 80’s). He also likes things that are sweet.
He has recently become enthralled with his great grandmother’s cookbook.
Inside are recipes, newspaper clippings, brittle and yellowed with age. Most, if not all of them are for sweets: cookies, candies, cakes, pies, and puddings.
Some of the recipes are handwritten.
So far, Carter has made us Snip Doodles – imagine a snicker doodle cake – and he is considering macaroon brownies or chocolate cake as his next project.
He told me yesterday that his late New Year’s resolution is to make 3-4 different recipes from this cookbook per week during the summer. (Apparently it is never too late to make those New Year’s resolutions).
Carter, that sounds like a sweet idea to me!
