I mentioned this morning that I was going to try the half moon recipe. I did! I did! My icing smoothing skills are lacking but they taste amazing. If you hate frosting then this isn’t your thing (Mrs. C stayed away) but that’s your problem.
Only thing was the recipe said to flatten them down a bit before you put them in the oven and I may have flattened them a bit too much. They needed to be a bit puffier and not so much like a disk. But notes have been made, and next time will be better.
Half moons! There is a bakery close to my house that makes these. They look like a black and white cookie but are more like a mini-cake with buttercream frosting. I haven’t been to the bakery at all this year (thanks covid!) and am craving one big time. I did some googling and found this recipe which duplicates the original half moons made at Hemstrought’s Bakery (now closed) which was located in upstate New York. This recipe makes 30 cookies so I think I should cut that in half. I’m thinking about giving these a try tonight. Why not? It’s Friday.
