So.....when my daughter's teacher sent out an s.o.s email requesting bake-goods and pastries for a fundraiser can you guess what happened?! Yep, I emailed her back and said "yes, I can provide 10 boxes of beautifully packaged and labeled pastries for your sale." She responded with "thank you so very much, we need them Thursday morning." Yikes, only 3 days to make 10 boxes various pastries! I finished them up last night, baked, attractively wrapped with vintage flowers and ribbon and sent them off this morning.
Inside one of the boxes was a favorite recipe of mine, courtesy of Mr. Alton Brown. It is all that a chocolate chip cookie should be; moist, chewy, and just as good three days from now as the day they were baked.
