Keeping Peace

Yes, I did go to great time and trouble to make a batch of Molasses Apple Cookies to send home with Chicken Mama tonight. (Molasses Apple? Apple Molasses? I keep switching the name around. What the heck ARE they called? Well, I just checked and the original recipe which I clipped out of a newspaper years and years ago labels them as Molasses Apple Cookies so I'd better start getting that right.)

I do have to admit that the two cookies look a lot alike.

These are the Walnut Clusters.

And these are the Molasses Apple Cookies.

In checking back, I find that I have posted the recipes for both these cookies previously. Therefore, if you're so inclined, you can click here to find the Walnut Cluster recipe, and here to find the one for Molasses Apple Cookies.

I'll close this post tonight with love and a wish for happy cookie baking from . . .

. . . me and that demanding little daughter o' mine, Chicken Mama.

Geez...if throwing a tantrum is that effective, I wonder what she's going to ask for next???

Sue said...

You are such a good mom.(I knew you were going to bake those cookies right from the start!!)

Erin said...

What a great photo of you! The girl looks happy now :)

Kelly said...

Love it!!

Jane said...

Now that you have everyone on a sugar high, you could ask for favors. "Honey could you.........." Who can say no on a full stomach of Mama love.

Susan said...

Thank you, once again, for not one but TWO wonderful recipes. The picture is great - you must have been a child bride....

Mama Pea said...

Jen - There IS a limit to what this mommy will do! (Besides that I don't think I've ever actually seen her throw a tantrum. :o) From the word go, she was raised to realize that kind of behavior was NOT tolerated.) Whoops, now that I think of it, I CAN remember one time. Chicken Mama, do you remember the time? It was when your cousin K was visiting and you were about 6-7 years old.

Sue - Nah, I'm not a good mom. I just like to bake. ;o)

Erin - She was never really UN-happy. She just wanted some cookies. :o) Great photo of me? Who actually likes photos of themselves??? Ugh.

Mama Pea said...

Kelly - Thanks, faithful reader!

Jane - Golldarn! Good idea!

Susan - I WAS a child bride! Twenty shouldn't be classified as a child bride but I would have been a better wife and just plain better person if I had had more time to "be out in the world" and do some things before settling into marriage. But who wouldn't change things in their past when looking at it all with 20/20 hindsight?

Love the picture of you two!!

Mama Pea said...

Beth - Thank you! My daughter has always been very photogenic. I'm not!

Leigh said...

Excellent photo of the two of you. And all of those cookies certainly look yummy!

Mama Pea said...

Thanks, Leigh! There are even some of each batch of cookies left. I hid them in the freezer.

See, you are such a good Mama...

No one ever really threw fits in our family either because even though Mom's cookies are the best, man that tiny half-pint could pack a smack! Mom muscles, must be a rule that once you pass that kid, you become super human.

APG - Super human . . . it's the only way we survive!
