Miette has a secret genius at work for us: his name is Jeff, and he makes the prettiest cookies around. He did such a gorgeous job on our Christmas cookies that now we just say, "Jeff, can you make us some cookies, please? Whatever strikes your fancy!" This week: Thistles, national flower of Scotland, symbol of both evil & protection (!), and all-around witch-ay wonder.
This post is dedicated to my favorite Scotsmen, all shining examples of Nobility, Bravery, but probably not Austerity*- Ewan McGregor, Craig Ferguson, and Martin Millar.
Availability: Octavia (the Ferry Building cookie will be featured next week!)
*The Language of Flowers is pretty addictive. You'll start looking at bouquets as little cocktail parties of floral personalities: "Who invited Lime Blossom? She is soooo inappropriate!")
