As you all know the oven died the other day before I could bake all the cookies for the kiln opening.
I had made up 2 batches of the sesame seed cookies to be baked and it occurred to me that there could be other ways to "bake" these cookies.
I took my cast iron skillet and heated it up and then I placed the cut cookies into the pan and cooked them.
Yes, I did.
And, they came out pretty darn good.
I was surprised at how well this worked.
I did one whole batch this way.
I did think that the sesame seed cookies worked well but, I was not ready to take the chance on the Cowboy Cookies.
Those were farmed out to my sister to make and bake.
Since she lives in Virginia they will be coming with her along with her peanut butter cookies.
I also sent batch number 2 of the sesame seed cookies off to be baked at Laurie's house.
There will be cookies.
And, there will be pots.
It is still a bit hot in the kiln, we will continue to take bricks out through the evening as the kiln cools.
