Oh dear! I'm so sorry that this picture has turned on it's side...I'm not quite sure why! Anyway, it's the cover of the new book I bought last week...yet another one. It's a book of brownies and bars by Patricia Helding, the owner of NYC's Fat Witch Bakery . I have to say that there isn't much new in the book (to me, that is) Also I don't find the quality of the book to be too impressive - thin pages, slightly faded photographs.
Still, there's always something to learn from any new cookbook I find...like these Butterscotch Bars which I delivered to the Coffee Tree this morning...
They looked and smelt very good - I'll see what the customers thought tomorrow. It's worth saying though that I made a shortbread base for the bars...and I'm very glad that I did. Without it (as in the original recipe) I fear they would have been far too soft to turn out or cut. Very difficult to handle - also quite thin!
Anyway, this may be a one off. I'll certainly reserve judgement until I've tried a few more recipes from the book.
Butterscotch Bars did their job this morning...tempting the Coffee Tree customers into buying a little extra something!
I hope that your Thursday has gone well so far...so much strange weather about. Thankfully t Australian cyclone is now over with, it seems, no fatalities. I hope that if you're snowed in somewhere, you're warm, cosy & well stocked!
