There are some words that evoke a memory. Like piazza. And footage. But pastry is my favorite. It makes me think about cruising to Lillian London's Bakery with Edna, (in her washed out lime LTD with A/C), for pastry. Her favorite. I think about her ordering her lemon squares and cupcakes and cookies....and punkin muffin, and having an absolute plan for when and how each and every piece would be enjoyed by her or Clarence. Usually it was for bed lunch.
So when I decided to make chocolate chip cookies this weekend, Edna was on my mind.
Thoughts of Star Store and Cherry and Webb. Thoughts of perfect hospital corners and dust-mopped bedrooms.
Thoughts of Howdy Burgers and Lums.
Thoughts of shopping for shoes and poodles on the bathroom walls.
Thoughts of playing with two boxes of costume jewelry for hours, arranging, admiring...
Thoughts of a drawer full of toys stashed under the spare room bed: jack-in-the-box, slinky dog on a leash...
Thoughts of playing in the good parlor, and getting measured on the cabinet door....
Thoughts of Edna. And her love of pastry.
Thanks for the inspiration Grandma.
Recipe is found on the back of the Pamela's Products Gluten Free pancake mix.
It is amazing.
Find it online here.
We use Pamela's for pancakes, muffins and cookies. Since C went gluten-free we only bake gluten free in our house. We have found Pamela's to be very flavorful, I think
due to the fact that it contains almond flour. Enjoy!
