Melting Moments (Oh, and.... I won a Contest!!)
These Melting Moments cookies are brought to you courtesy of... Kerrygold butter!
Huh? What? you say?
OK, so Kerrygold didn't send me cookies. No, it's better than that.
I had entered a contest from Gourmet Magazine online that asked for recipes and the story surrounding them. I submitted my post on my grandma's cinnamon rolls.
Imagine my surprise when I received an official looking e-mail from a person at Gourmet magazine that said...
"Congratulations on winning the “Every Recipe has a Story” contest!"
Shock of shocks! I won something! Yippee!
Talk about cool prizes! One was a cooking class for three. I was able to take two friends to a Pastry class at The Learning Kitchen. (I am so bummed I accidentally deleted my pictures from class!)
The second prize was this mother lode of butter and cheese from Kerrygold.
I'm sure all of you bakers will understand when I say that being given high quality butter is like manna from heaven! What better prize could a baker hope for?
And the cheese was excellent! My family and I had so much fun choosing our favorites. (I think it was the first time my oldest willingly ate cheese.)
Anyway, I've seen various bloggers post their Melting Moments cookies and knew I had to try them using my fancy butter. (You can find the recipe by clicking here and selecting "Desserts" and then chose the cookie recipe.)
These cookies are a dry, soft cookie, almost like shortbread. When paired with dulce de leche filling, they are out of this world!
Many, many thanks to Gourmet magazine and Kerrygold. Love 'em both!! OK, over and out for now, folks. Have a safe and happy 4th of July!
