Eunice : oooh...my man would be drooling at the cherry pie, even if it's not part of the menu. he'll just look longingly at it. have you ever checked out the NYTimes cookie? that is apparently divine but i've yet to test it. hope your fete is a smash. http://www.nytimes.com/2008/07/09/dining/09chip.html?_r=1&pagewanted=1&ref=dining

Purple Piggie: I bookmarked this recipe - a little more complicated than the normal cookie, but I can't wait to try it and see if it's really that much better!

Eunice : do you mean my recipe or the NYTimes? if mine, i'm flattered and hope you like it; if you are referring to the NYTimes i'm shamefully put in my place but would love to know how it turned out for you as there are only so many recipes in the world that one person can test.

Purple Piggie: Both actually! Though yours looks slightly easier. My favorite cookies are chewy but I don't seem able to get it right. I learned a lot just reading your recipe, though! I think I'll bake a batch this week. It certainly won't help my husband's diet plan!

Tam : Today (and for the next several days!) we are pitting fresh picked Rainier Cherries, from our own tree, to be dried and used in jam. As we pit we are pulling the "beauties" out to freeze. Later we will be making cherry pies and freezing those.
