AT HOME WITH BUNGALOW HEAVEN COOKIES
This is a small, self-produced cookbook from my former home, Pasadena. It is so charming, and packed with interesting cookie recipes! The Bungalow Heaven neighborhood association has a home tour every year, and during that tour they sell cookies. From their yearly cookie sales some of the residents compiled this collection of customer favorites. The concept is simple, but the cookies are so much better than the standard chocolate chip and oatmeal you might be imagining! I love the honey-walnut bars, and the apricot-blackberry-cheddar foldovers are like nothing I’ve ever tasted before. Some of the recipes and ingredients are adventuous, using Chinese five spice, curry, anise, and baker’s ammonia–in other words, these aren’t your grandma’s bake sale cookies!
