I was asked that question Sunday and my response was “I can make anything” As long as I know what it’s called and I can find a recipe... or I can figure out on my own basically what’s in it.. Sure. I can do it. I'll never turn down a cooking challenge anyway.
This particular question was directed towards a pignoli cookie. Sure, I can do that.. And I can probably make it better than the one you’re eating too. (Neener neener) lol.
When I’m asked to make something, whether it’s to cook or bake I put my all into it. I don’t do anything half assed. I will seek out the best recipe I can find and make it to the best of my ability with the best ingredients I can find.
I have a plan to make these Pignoli cookies with fresh made almond paste.. I have a bag of almond meal in my freezer left over from Christmas cookies.. So yea, I’m gonna do that too... and post the recipe here. I’ll do a trial run before I go and make them for the bestie when she gets here (which can’t be soon enough when I’m still waiting for her to get her tickets for her flight home). I was at her sister’s yesterday who told me we’ll have a cooking feast when she gets here.
So, Stay tuned.. there's gonna be a LOT of recipes coming up soon. I've already started cranking up the ice cream maker and playing with recipes since the ice cream man is a jerk who never stops on my block.. I've sworn off the fake stuff for good (and who wants to spend $3 for an ice cream cone anyway?). I decided last night that I'm going to hit the library tonight to get a few ice cream recipe books since for the life of me I can't find mine. I usually make eggless ice cream, but this year I'm going to venture into the unknown.
It's going to be interesting.. and Delicious too!
