Three Seed Cookies
Disclaimer...the 'free giveaway' advertised in this newsletter subject line may not match expectations. Misleading advertising? Not at all. Once you've put today's extra special cookie recipe to the test, you'll appreciate that this truly IS a gift that keeps on giving, as you'll continue making these for generations. This was the most popular dish I ever featured in my cooking school classes - a student of mine went on to make an entire business from this single recipe which she produced to sell in bulk - and one of the first gems I featured in this Meatland column. The mailing list has grown dramatically since, meaning the majority of readers will have missed out, and we really can't have that. Think of this as our Purim gift to you. Because the most meaningful gifts don't necessarily have a monetary value...sharing is the greatest gift of all.
