Have you ever had the urge to bake, but realize that there isn’t much any of the baking-essential ingredients in the pantry? I remember a time that a such a flagrant blunder would never had happened in my home. However, since my day job scarfs the majority of my time, energy (and sanity), my one-time stress relief activity has been somewhat non-existent. (And I wonder why I have knots up and down my back. hmmm….)

When the urge to bake overwhelmed me a few weeks ago, I looked in the ‘fridge to find ¾ pound of butter, 4 eggs, and some expired milk. That’s it! Pitiful. Luckily, when combined with flour, sugar, and a flavoring or two, a baker’s options are not completely lost. Cookies are a save-the-day kind of treat.

These cookies are have a subtle flavor that can be enjoyed by all. The sugar mixture on the outer edge can be altered according to preference, of course. But, the wonderful draws of slice-n-bake cookies are they (1) usually make a ton of cookies at one time and (2) can be made way ahead of time and kept in the refrigerator or freezer. Sweet! (Literally and Figuratively)

Lovely! I adore slice & bake cookies! And since they can be made when my fridge is practically empty, even better!

ps Book yourself a massage–you deserve it!

I’ve learned what recipes I can make with no eggs, no butter, no flour – but sugar is always a necessity!
