I know she is including pralined pecans, perhaps there are others…  Have you tried the english toffee in the cookie book? yum.  The brandy snaps are also pretty candy-like.

Yay Rose! Praline Pecans! Mmmmmm.

And…

most amazing brandy snap

I’ll tell ya’—I’m really looking forward to this one. I believe you can actually create a brandy snap recipe that results in brandy snaps. Until now, I’ve been convinced that all photographed brandy snaps are made of wax, as I have been completely unable to create on. Truly, I’m sure this is more my problem than anything, though!!

My wish list for candy recipes would be the perfect recipe for each of the following basic candies—take ‘em or leave ‘em, they come with appreciation for your consideration:

~ Chocolate, vanilla, maple & brown sugar fudge
~ Caramels
~ English Toffee—the crunchy stuff with nuts (with or without chocolate)
~ Candied nuts
~ Truffies
~ ...and caramel corn
~ Maybe those yummy little pastel mints that look like flattened kisses and have the little white balls on top

And, since you might be scoping this thread now and again, I wanted to say thank you so much for the beautiful, marvellous books that have enriched my life in so many ways !!!

Really pretty, Julie!  And if you made them, I know they’re real!!!!!

Jenn, I think you have the right idea, and I may have to join you in this concept in the next several months!!!!

Anne, you might want to do it sooner than later. I bought a used one on amazon, for half the price (includes shipping). The condition of the book was supposed to be “good”. The description was “missing dust jacket, some scuff marks, highlighting and writing possible.”

When it came, it had a dust jacket, and I flipped through every page and the book was PRISTINE. Like brand new! Am so happy. Already made sugar cookies from it and I want to make everything (there’s an orange shortbread and lemon bars that looked super yummy).

Gee, Jenn, there are some great prices there!  I’ll have to wait a while, though, to justify it—obviously, not due to cost here, but because I just don’t make that many cookies, and I got a cookie book for Christmas, plus I have a couple others that are pretty good.  Maybe if I ever get caught up on cakes, I can turn to cookies, because there are a bunch of cookies I know I want to make—plus ones in RCC that I haven’t even SEEN yet I STILL know I want to make!!!!
