Scandinavian Almond Bars

I can't believe we can't get this photo to post right side up!  Well, the cookies were really good!  I've eyed the photo in several BH&G cookbooks for years and never have made them.....I decided this would be perfect for the cooky exchange!  And we thought they were!  =)

Pack Rat ~ Girl Scouts

You know you need to do something about the pantry when you go shopping and can't figure out where everything is going....so....we took a few days to gut and reorganize the pantry. It looks nice, I'd post an after photo, but we didn't think to take any before photos! Pack Rat, Girl Scouts have a pretty nice stash in our pantry! Then we proceeded to can Great Northern Beans....3 canner loads. 7 quarts and 16 pints of plain beans and 16 pints of chili beans (we've never canned chili beans before). So, in order to put those away in the shop we had to do a little reorganizing there, too! So, here we are today....getting ready for weekend house guests...baking and cooking up a storm!

A quest for the perfect oatmeal cookie to please hubby.....

This one comes close....

I used ghee in place of the shortening and butter, too, of course...I'll try again after the dough chills longer...maybe they will not spread out so thinly....but the flavor is wonderful!   We used our fresh eggs, homemade dark brown sugar using organic black strap molasses, organic white spelt flour, raw cream for the milk, organic quick rolled oats, half pecans and half walnuts. 

I doubled the recipe, of course!
