On Sunday, DH and I went on a "three hour tour" aboard a tugboat in New York Harbor. And in the spirit of Gilligan's Island, this lasted a *bit* longer than anticipated. Once home (after a lovely and oh-so-welcome glass of wine at Acqua, an excellent Seaport restaurant), I couldn't wait to turn on the oven, for it was cold and windy aboard the tug near the end.
I found an intriguing recipe called, I thought, Cinnamon Chews, in a recipe box I got recently in Akron. These are very unusual: the batter is baked in one piece, cut into squares and then those squares are rolled into balls. Quite a bit of geometry going on in one baked good.
