Quaker Rocky Road WIP
Many years ago, and maybe it is still there, I visited a wonderful bakery shop in Carmel-By-The-Sea (California). It sold buttery rich shortbread cookies stamped and pierced with the prettiest of designs. A bird, a stylized daisy, ornate letters of alphabet - and some were crisscrossed in a sort of plaid design, as I recall. And then there were those great big waffle cookies that took all afternoon to munch - and everything in between!
The borders on this design are all reminiscent of those carefree jaunts, wandering up the steeply sloped streets of Carmel, now so far away. Perhaps I will return one day.
