What can $10.75 buy you in NYC?
"Not much" most people would say. Maybe a (very) short taxi ride or a carton of organic milk.
Well today I proved that wrong.
$10.75 bought me perfection, people.
In case you have been living in the cave next to Osama Bin Laden, let me explain about Ms. Greenspan. Legions of bloggers, home cooks and foodies are enticed, delighted and amazed at Dorie's brilliant cookbooks. They salivate and ruminate over her confections, incredibly creative recipes and her NYC/Parisan/Connecticut lifestyle.
Many people out there brilliantly replicate her recipes. Tuesdays with Dorie and French Fridays with Dorie are two examples. The ones I have personally tried have always been excellent. However, who could resist tasting something made by her and her team directly?
I was away in the country for the past few days but as soon as I returned, I speed walked over to the Cookie Bar to
A Chewy Chunky Blondie (my favorite)
A World Peace Cookie (I need to send these to Dr. B in Iraq)
A Sugar Topped Vanilla Sable (Oh mama)
A Pear Pineapple Jammer (Loved it)
They were all out of the chocolate chunkers (of course) but this may prompt a return visit today. It's ok. Don't feel sorry for me.
Dorie and "The Kid" were both there. Dorie smiling greeting everyone, chatting, "The Kid" selling cookies, making change.
