Move Over Candy Cane

Such a nice Friday night.  We hit Barnes, which we usually don't get to do on Fridays.  Now it feels like we have a whole honkin' bunch of weekend left.

I love that.

And, for the most part, the house is clean.  Love going into the weekend with a clean house.  And, and, and, the Toffee Crunch Cookies I made yesterday were killer good.  Though we couldn't tell they were toffee, they did have a smooth wonderful taste and texture.

Meanwhile, look at this pretty tin Tim got me last night.  I can finally put away my Christmas tin, and happily keep this pretty little bugger out all ding dong summer long.  Holds the perfect test batch amount, eight 31g cookies.

Move over candy cane, there's a new tin in town.

    And nothing worse than cleaning the house on a Saturday. Glad you don't have to.

  2. I too clean my palace on Fridays so that I can sloth my way through weekend:)
    My dad used to work in a chocolate factory so we have a lot of those tin cans lying around the house.

    2. I have tons of tins of famous Chocolate Hearts from our local candy factory PIONIR (the link is below) and lots of Christmassy ones from them too. I've never stored cookies in them though, mostly tea or trinklets :)

    3. Tea is nice. I can see that.

      I keep ours on my baker's bar, usually filled with a test batch of something. Peanut butter granola in there right now.

  7. Only eight cookies? That means it needs to be replenished often and thoroughly!

    1. And that's what makes it fun. There's just enough cookies and then they're gone.
