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.
France’s covid numbers are starting to shoot up. 10,000 new ones yesterday.
Trump had a rally last night. Virtually no masks. No social distancing. Never have I seen a person go so far out to try to kill his supporters. We’re living in surreal times:

Twitter is raging about the clip of Kansas City fans booing a moment of solidarity against racism. And yeah, it’s terrible, but wait, there are fans in the stands now?
