"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

Personal Notes:
This has been a favorite cookie of Jeff, Jon and Jennifer's over the years. Patty has a special fondness for them also. The first time she tried alone, she liked te taste, but began to feel rather funny. As it turned out, it wasn't the cookie; at 6:39 that evening...Jeff was born.
