We had such a fun book club this week! Everyone was in the best spirits, with the kids out of school and Summer plans about to take place. For me, it was such a treat to see my girlfriends and catch up, that I totally forgot to photograph or get the details on the appetizers Lisa brought or Susan’s delicious dinner. I was in charge of dessert and made two kinds of cookies. I made Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies, pictured below, and Ginger Cookies. I made both over the previous weekend and when they had cooled out of the the oven, I put them in ziplock bags and into the freezer. I took them out of the freezer on the way to the dinner and they were perfectly thawed when we served them with strawberry sorbet for dessert. They are two of my favorite cookies and the whole group must have thought so too, because there was not a cookie in site when I left!
For June we read Carry the One: A Novel by Carol Anshaw.
