Everything's Better With a Brogue

From Miette

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.

Thistle Cookies
Availability: Octavia (the Ferry Building cookie will be featured next week!)
Price: $4

*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!")

Amazing cookies! Aren't thistles just lovely? And the language of flowers IS addictive.

oh yes, you are right about the brogue -- are you the san fran bakery that used to have internships?

Thanks, Junebug!

MichelleShopped- that's us!

Baobao- that's very poignant, but we don't need to know about deals on Nike Air Max or Uggs. Frye boots, wellingtons, &/or vegan shoes comfortable enough to work a 9-hour shift, those we might be interested in! (Not really, though, please.)
