Gary called to ask the name of the Archway Christmas cookies he likes*. How would I know? "Blah Blah blah!" he cried. "Blah! Powdered sugar! Blah blah!"
"Wedding cookies," I answered authoritatively.
"I'm not sure! There are three kinds here and they all have powdered sugar!"
"Are you sure? They all look alike."
Sigh. "Buy them all."
Ding. We have an answer.
So he brought home:
The first he tried was the Pfeffernusse. Pfeffernusse was popped into mouth. Pfeffernusse spat back out like a powdery ping-pong ball. Powdered sugar was all over his face. "Aaaagccchkkk!"
"Seriously? That bad?"
He instantly popped put another Pfeffernusse in his mouth. "Oh!" he explained, "I just wasn't expecting it to taste like licorice. It's delicious!"
So. We have lots of powdered sugar here in this house.
