For the Love of a Successful Try

I love to try new ways of being creative, but somehow I have never associated this with cooking… until last week’s visit to Santa Fe, New Mexico, when I made a batch of cookies with no recipe. (gasp) The best part about that is how perfect and delicious they were. So in honor of trying new things, (and because a few friends asked me) here’s the recipe using what was on hand. These are not super sweet- more along the lines of a nutty biscotti taste- add more sugar if you want them sweeter. xxoo Yabette

Satori arrived from a magical island of fairies and Mer folk. It is a sanctuary of beauty, peace, and bliss of which Satori favors. However, when situations arise to bring her out of this protected sphere, she wields a poison stinger that she will not hesitate to use when needed.
