New additions.

This blog is a celebration! In case you haven’t been by lately, the last two blogs were “homework” entries, of sorts. We learned how to make Sprouted Flour, in preparation for these quick & satisfying cookies. Well, job well done, and now’s the time! This cookie is a new addition to my household, and I am excited to share them with you. They are truly delicious.

Before we jump in, I have a few more exciting additions that I would like to share with you. As you may know, my brother Matt and his wife Megan just had a beautiful baby girl named Sophie May Schrecengost. She’s so cool; it’s hard to describe. Video phones are wonderful and have helped our scattered family share in the excitement and love. And, I also look forward to a trip to Chicago soon, in order to experience the unparalleled fun of an authentic 3-D meeting. I’ve saved each and every Sophie video, and I’d like to share one of my favorites with you. Introducing the wonder of little Sophie being held by her very nice daddy.


Soon after Sophie arrived, John and I welcomed our own little addition to the California branch of our family. I mentioned that John and I were considering adopting a rescue doggie. Well, it’s a done deal. His name is Todd. He came with the name, and it was too funny to change. A completely human name that somehow fits. He’s a great dog. Gentle and seemingly trainable, which is a good thing because he has a pretty solid case of separation anxiety. As you can see in the photo below, Todd spent the first few days under my feet while I cooked. It’s gotten better, but we welcome any advice!

And now, the Apple Butter Dots! Yum. Once you take the time to make Sprouted Flour, these cookies come together very quickly, making them perfect for a last minute get together. Store your sprouted, dehydrated & cooled berries in an airtight container and grind just before use. Or if you aren’t up to making your own sprouted flour just yet, there is a wonderful company who grinds and ships sprouted flour in small batches called To Your Health Sprouted Flour Company.

    I was at that WAPF meeting that Molly brought these cookies to. I can attest to the fact that they are indeed delicious and we all couldn't stop eating them!

    I plan to make them using the jar of home made apple butter my son gave me for Christmas.

    Love the cookies and your great new niece who looks like a little doll. But Todd, oh he is so dear and obviously needed your loving family.

    I must take time to go back to how to sprout the wheat flour. I just took a class with Edward Espe Brown last week and I had a ball. What a character and I have loved the Tassajara Cookbook for years. Just got his new updated one.
