Glazed Butter Cookies

It's funny how a recipe can morph as you experiment with it.  On Thursday, I set out to make a traditional wedding cookie recipe that my friend Emma gave me - it was a pretty straightforward recipe, but I wasn't crazy about the result.  It was too dry and crumbly, and not sweet enough.

I tried again, adding a little milk and some honey to the dough, and the results were amazing.  Those two additions produced a cookie that sweet, buttery, and delicious!  I also changed the powdered sugar coating to a vanilla glaze, and it's really the perfect little cookie.

Review: Williams-Sonoma's Ice Cream Starter

I was in my local Williams-Sonoma last week, and I saw a product called Ice Cream Starter, and I was intrigued.  It comes in three flavors - vanilla, chocolate, and caramel.  I am such a caramel fiend, so I thought I would give it a try, and do a review here!
