Once again I’ve been put to shame by the eagerness of my cookie-wizard friend Ridgely. She posted the whole process of creating these masterpieces from scratch. Those days are long gone for me.
My cookie-baking efforts have been narrowed to the purchase of three ingredients: a bag of waffle pretzels, a bag of Rolos, and a bag of pecans.
Looks like I should have made that two bags of Rolos. Oh, well.
They go in a 250-degree oven for 5 minutes.
Since I bought raw pecans in the bulk section, I decided to use those five minutes to butter-glaze them.
A few minutes to cool and another few minutes in the fridge and I’ve finished my holiday baking.
Yes, I’d much rather have Ridgely’s creative bent, but I will be satisfied with my limitations when I proudly pull out these mock turtles for my holiday guests.
