The World According to Zed's Official Seal

I saw this idea of a seal at Chris' Some Guy's Blog site and decided to make one of my own. So apropos I think.

Okay, I'm heading to the kitchen now to make dinner and--are you ready?--a Food Network recipe for yummy super-delicious Butter Cookies as part of my reward for returning to my blog (I'll use any excuse to make these cookies--they are that good).

Too bad you're not currently in the tri-state. We could share...

I'm outside in your yard. Give me cookies.

No. They're all mine.

Oh, okay. But just two; one for you, one for Alexander.

Isn't he ever going to get over his shyness?

I think he wants the weather to be a bit warmer. Did you also get some cold yesterday? I had to put the duvet back on the bed, and I guess I don't blame Alexander for wanting to stay inside where it's warm...

See how smart he is, and he's not even out of the womb yet!

Have another cookie.

Wow, was that bad! Even I'm ashamed of that one.

That was bad, Chris. Meow.

Shelli, I made 1/2 batch, 12 cookies, and I gave 4 to Tanya and Alexander, ate 4 (bad!) myself, and gave two neighbors 4. They're all gone--they're that good. But NEXT batch, you're first in line. :) (Hey, I missed seeing you around! Thanks for stopping by!)

They were great.

Okay Dick, here you go (yum):

Food Network Basic Butter Cookies Recipe

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 sticks of unsalted butter (softened)
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (sometimes I switch out the vanilla extract for pure lemon extract)

Bake cookies at 350-375 degrees, until edges are golden, 12 to 15 minutes total.

ZED'S WARNING: These cookies will absolutely, positively give you a fatal heart attack if eaten with any sort of regularity whatsoever.

Yep, that's what they called me: Gimpy. Well, not to my face anyway. :)

The legs are doing so well, Sushiboy. (Thank you Lord!) I'm now a total non-gimp--still wimpy, but not a gimp. Woo-hoo!
