DESSERTS

Who doesn’t love a warm, chewy chocolate chip cookie? The original recipe calls for a cup of butter, but I have always found that a cup of shortening delivers a fluffier product. My family certainly agrees!

I’ve been making these cookies for a loooong time. The lemon flavor and coconut makes them extra special. They’re crispy on the outside & chewy on the inside. Get busy & then go grab a big glass of milk. Yum!

Cookie Tacos w/White Chocolate Sauce & Fresh Fruit

Cookie Tacos w/White Chocolate Sauce & Fresh Fruit

DESSERTS

This is one of my favorite desserts to make when preparing a special dinner. It’s showy and requires a lot less effort than you might initially think when perusing the recipe. Granted the recipe is a bit lengthy, but it is for both the cookie tacos and the white chocolate sauce. Don’t be intimidated – it is actually very easy to make both items. You just need to be organized. I recommend making the cookie taco shells the day before you plan to serve them.

So a bit about this recipe… My mom gave me a cookbook back in the late 1980s – Southwest Tastes, by Ellen Brown. It was a compilation of recipes from the PBS series, Great Chefs of the West. There were several well know chefs from San Antonio highlighted in the book; thus, the reason for my mom’s thoughtful gift. Although this cookbook is no longer in print, the recipes are timeless. I have made just about every recipe in this cookbook and it was really responsible for my culinary education. My mom taught me the basics and set the foundation. This cookbook took me to the next level.
