    It's Almost Labor Day! Glazed Lemon Cookie Time

    I was a little surprised to find out that a number of school districts started back a few weeks ago. We went from the second Wednesday of September to the second week of June. One week off at Easter (Oh we can't say that.. I mean Spring Break) and two weeks at Christmas (Woops... Again I can't say that I mend Winter break) And a few other holidays like Thanksgiving (Can I say that?). Lincoln's Birthday, Memorial Day, Etc... If I would have known I would have supplied you with this cookie recipe! I also use to to grind down for my lemon cheesecake... 

    Enjoy! Recipe

    French Butter Cookies

    French Butter Cookies

    I "Americanize" these.. The French would only dip on side in chocolate only.. I like to drizzle the entire cookie.  These are simple and buttery! Also, you can use the higher priced butters for more of a rich taste! Enjoy!

    Pecan Cake with Pecan Praline Glaze

    Its Monday. Thursday is "Feast" day! The last few weeks I was teaching in the Midwest (Ohio, IL and IN) fall pastry classes and a few donut classes too. Today I made 3 pumpkin pecan cheesecakes for the Thursday feast. I am going to drive to Napa area to have dinner with some friends and their family. Fall in Napa is a crisp time of year... Maybe I will bring some apples home!

    Here is a Pecan Cake with the richest glaze. Next week be looking for my huge newsletter packed with holiday goodness!

    Have a great Thanksgiving!
