Coincidence Cookies

Posted By on Mon, Nov 2, 2009 at 9:27 AM

A weekend hunting and gathering foray turned up Tennessee's own Muddy Pond sorghum. That happened the day after the vintage Ronco cookie gun tumbled out of the cabinet.

A surf of Relish magazine's website turned up editor Jill Melton's great molasses cookie recipe, which she made with part molasses, part sorghum with a lighter result.

At the end of this series of connected incidents, our cookie tray is beginning to take shape.

The same combinations of circumstance and happenstance are working in millions of heads right now, in home kitchens and restaurant kitchens. What influences, what magazines, what cookbooks, family members, dietary considerations -- what's the recipe going into the holiday planning potion wherever you are?
