Look what I picked up at a cookie exchange last weekend! This pretty cookie came from Paulie’s Restaurant in Houston. Delivered to the Houston Chowhounds’ cookie exchange by Paul Petronella and made by his mother Kathy, they were part of an array of tasty sweets enjoyed by all.
Probably the most creative of all were Plinio Sandalio’s Oatmeal sandwich cookies with foie gras buttercream - luscious and decadent! Bolivian born Plinio, a savory chef turned pastry chef, is rocking the Houston culinary scene with his off-the-wall combinations. He is gracious enough to share his recipes here.
I wish you, my readers, a magical Christmas filled with endless joy, laughter and love; and peace, happiness and prosperity in 2010!
