Family and friends celebrated another birthday with our son Tom Saturday. His favorite desserts were aplenty. His sister Barbara baked Madelines, his favorite chocolate torte and I baked his favorite cookies.
The cookie recipe goes way back to his youth. I often baked this recipe because of the generous yield when the children carried lunches to school. One year Tom asked for his birthday gift to have a batch of the cookies and a gallon of milk with the stipulation that he could eat them when he wanted and he could decide who to share them with. Somewhere in my photo collection we have the photo of Tom at the table with his fourteen dozen cookies and a gallon of milk.
Happy Birthday Tom!
