Oh, the month I’ve had. We lost a family member. We lost a dog. Stress at work is off the charts. I’ve been so uninspired about cooking, I actually resubscribed to a weekly menu/shopping list because I just did not have the energy to even think about it. Luckily, this downward cycle looks to turning back up. And, as I was scrolling through Foodgawker for the first time in weeks, what do I see but these luscious little bastards. All pretty swirly and full of cinnamony goodness. Plus, there is no cookie I love more than a refrigerator slice cookie. Make the dough, chill it wash the dishes. Come back later and it’s like a fairy left you cookie dough in the fridge, just waiting to be baked.
These are definitely tasty – tasty enough to perhaps make the Christmas cookie pantheon. We’ll see how they are tomorrow to be sure. We’ll keep a couple here, but I must ship them off to the neighbor’s. We’ve already eaten three apiece, and with Bill’s diet restrictions these mofos cannot stay in the house. That would be bad. Very bad.
Regardless, bon apétit. I’m not going to reprint the recipe, but it is here at WannaComeWith. My only adaptation was to use orange juice instead of water in the glaze, and adding a little orange zest, too.
Ok, I just ate another one. Must go pack them up. NOW.
