I am sure I have written about Cookie Thursday is a Thing but I was terrible about noting down when I wrote, or keeping to a schedule, or lots of things.
The Covid Pandemic has NOT made me pay attention to those things.
I have decided to be more intentional about blog posts.
I am now writing down blog post titles in my calendar and keeping track that way.
I am also writing down all the blog post titles down from my entire blogging life that has been a bit half assed.
I promise to do better.
Cookie Thursday is a Thing began out of my desire to use and show off our brand new kitchen.
The new kitchen was put in, through a nine month process where they ignored our request for a kitchen, figured it after we inquired about it in week 4, lost a cabinet, couldn’t install until they remade that cabinet, the granite was backordered, and then templated and installed.
That is a LONG time to be without a truly functional kitchen.
I was definitely going to be showing it off.
And experimenting with baking.
Thus, Cookie Thursday is a Thing was born.
Cookie Thursday is a Thing (yes I am married to the title) began six years ago in January of 2015.
At first there were a couple of other bakers who would take shifts and bake weekly.
And then they all petered off.
Until I was the last circulator standing. (this took about 4 months)
Six years of weekly cookies.
The tag line is Cookie Thursday is a Thing because it is not yet Friday and we are sad.
I only bake with quality ingredients: butter, real vanilla, good chocolate, King Arthur flour.
6 years is a lot of ingredients.
Relatively quickly I decided that the months had to be themed.
Not only does theming the months aid in finding recipes, it also gives a bit of structure to the entire enterprise.
Over the years I have settled some months onto months of the year and kept the theme consistent.
6 years of cookies is 312 weeks. That’s a lot of cookie types. That is why they are themed.
This month, March 2021,the theme was Greatest Hits. Over the years there have been cookies that were consistently asked for.
I baked jalapeno chocolate chip cookies, I want them to be called the hot chocolate chocolate chip cookies but no one is playing along.
I baked fudgy cocoa no bakes, the peanut butter oatmeal one.
I baked cookies with Lucky Charms marshmallows in them for St. Patrick’s Day.
This past week I baked triple pepper jelly thumbprint cookies. Sometimes I do savory and they are always a hit.
Except for the BBQ chip cookie. That was awful.
I experiment on my coworkers using Cookie Thursday is a Thing. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t.
April will be a citrus cookie month. Very springy. All 5 Thursdays.
Just now I decided to post my weekly Cookie Thursday is a Thing on here.
Just for another thing to keep consistent.
So check back on Thursday to see what citrus I decided on for this week.
