Hats, Those cookies sounds really good. Have printed the recipe and will try them this weekend. DH loves everything cinnamon.
I always use butter and whole milk, whenever I bake. My mother always used that and when I used her recipes and trying to do them lowfat, the final product changed drastically. I figured cakes, cookies and desserts are not diet items anyway, so why bother to cut a few calories. Only thing I have experimented with is using coconut oil for shortening. I use it in my muffins and cakes, and they come out just fine. But I still use butter, when I make pancakes f. ex. Pancakes need to taste of butter IMO. But we don't butter them, when we eat them. So there is a savings right there.
Just planted a second set of Mexican Petunias our DIL brought us. Our landscaper weed-wacked the first set, I planted in July. I have marked them well, so they cannot miss them. Besides I gave him a "lecture", when he came to get his payment. The problem is, he is having other companies doing some of the work for him. And they don't care. The roots are still in the ground, and I have seen two of them coming back. In TX they grow like weeds and spread, so I am hoping I will have luck with them, even though they are taken out of their environment. They have gorgeous blue flowers.
