Curtis and I made some more cookies this week. These are Martha Stewart's ice box butter cookies. I made the dough on Saturday and then on Monday I cut them up and let Curtis place them on the parchment lines cookie sheet. These are one of my husband's favorites. Very easy to make a bunch of dough a head of time so you get almost instant satisfaction come baking time.
Right now I have Paula Deen's banana bread in the oven. I'll let you know how it turns out. I seem to have manifested a lot of her recipes into my life lately and they are all good. A neighbor made this and shared a slice with me yesterday and since I had the ingredients and a craving and both boys are napping I figured I'd try it. It was really easy to make and true to Paula Deen style uses butter instead of oil. I had to tweak it a little and I'll let you know how and why later when we see if it's any good or not. The big reason I wanted to try it was that Curtis ate a piece and said he really liked it. With any other recipe I've tried for banana bread he's always said no. Of course maybe it was just because some other mom gave it to him. We'll see.
