"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

I can remember Memow baking these cookies dozens of times when we would come to visit. They were always baked to perfection. My husband says you can always tell when something is made with love...I don't think Memow has ever made anything any other way.
