just an update… and a recipe

Hello again

I have been crocheting…. this was so much fun.. and very easy and quickly made. I have made one each night…they are shawls... Not the brightest of colors.. but I am sure it looks good for those they are made for…

And Buffie… here’s that recipe…

2 eggs

1 cup sugar

1,76 ounces potato flour

6,4 ounces of coconut (the white fluffy part only)

1/4 teaspoon baking powder/soda

split the eggs…

whisk egg whites and sugar until stiff (sort of)

mix in the yolks

add everything else and hand mix this with a “whatchamightcallit” .. those with soft end.. that makes it easy to take batter out of pots..

Put on baking pan, like you would chocolate chip cookies.. and bake in the oven like those too..

(this is so different from our ovens.. so do what you usually do with small cookies) They are supposed to look somewhat like these.

Wow Monica the shawls are lovely-You did an amazing job.
I love the fact that the cookies you made have potato flour in them! I cannot eat any wheat flour, rye or barly but could actually eat these cookies! Thanks for the recipe.
I also really enjoyed your wintery photos-Beautiful!

The cookies are called "kokos makroner" .... and I have no idea how to translate that.. other than I would call them coconut-cookies ;-) hehe
They are yummy...

God, you are SO lucky to have that veiw everyday of your life, it's Sooooo beautiful! You could frame those.

Wow, I'm very impressed with your crocheting, especially having the loops being so loose, that's hard to do! Lucky friends!

I copied down the recipe, I'm going to make them for Christmas! Thanks!!!! :)
