Cookies with a Twist: Lilies
A Dollop of Batter Ready to Bake
Lilies...when you hear the word do you think of the lovelies that may be flourishing in your yard right at this moment.
They are elegant, light, and add that touch of magic to any garden-scape.
The lilies here fit that description as well...most resembling the calla lily.
I do hope you give them a try.
My sister used to make these when I was a young girl and would visit her n Pennsylvania.
One of the first things I would ask for upon my arrival was liliesAnd she would almost always say: "Ok, Padi Kay, I knew you would be asking for them so let's get started."
TThey are fun to make and delightful to enjoy when they are ready to eat. Yum, yum,and yum.
Delightful, easy cookie
These are most unusually delightful cookies that are surprisingly easy to prepare and disappear as quickly as they appear.
Lilies got their name because they resemble a calla lily. They are an old family recipe and one that you will love to serve especially. at times of special celebration or at a holiday get together. Your family and friends will quickly gather around if you make them.
Any excuse to Celebrate
Invite friends and family to help make them. You will welcome the extra hands when you are folding them to make the lily shape.
These turn an ordinary day into a C E L E B R A T I O N....
Just out of the oven---ready to fold
Think what a better world it would be if we all, the whole world, had cookies and milk about three o'clock every afternoon and then lay down on our blankets for a nap.— Robert Fulghum
Lilies already to scoop up that luscious whipped cream
A Little Crunchy, a Little Chewy
The cookie batter will be the consistency of pancake batter. It will seem too runny but if they look like the picture on this page, then you nailed it.
This is a perfect ending to a heavy meal. Maybe you have served a bit over the top meal. Everyone has rested a bit and a little bit of sweetness would punctuate the evening. It will be fun if you make them while the guests are there. Hot lilies are the best. It can be a gather around in the kitchen time as you have guests help with preparation.
Out comes the highlight of the evening. A little bit of crunchy, a little bit of chewy along with the warmth, and the smooth, cool whipped topping will leave everyone asking for another one. They taste like m o r e.
