Position rack in the center of the oven.
Pre-heat oven to 425.
Whisk together thoroughly in a large bowl:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 c sugar (I was out of sugar and used brown sugar instead)
1 tbsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
¾ c cocoa powder (my addition)
1 ½ c. heavy cream
½ c. white chocolate chips (my addition) (nuts would also be nice)
Mix with a rubber spatula until all of the ingredients are moistened. Feel free to add more cream if needed. Gather the dough into a ball and knead it gently against the sides of the bowl 5-10 times, turning and pressing any loose pieces into the dough.Transfer to a floured surface and pat into an 8-inch round about ¾” thick. Cut into 8-12 wedges. Place at least ½ inch apart on a baking sheet.
Brush the tops with:
2-3 tsps cream or milk
Bake 12-15 minutes
Let cool on a rack or serve warm



New Project: Ties

Okay… here’s my new thing.  I make ties.  I started with cute short girl ties (pictured below) and over the weekend I made my first full scale version (that’s me wearing it right there.)   I really like the short ones but the standard length is fun too.   Who wants one? I’ll make one special just for you or the person/thing of your choice.

Episode 3…

My friend Larry has started filming some episodes of his story “Whose Life Is This Anyway?” and I am in episode 3 playing a real estate broker who is trying to get her hoarder friend Marc to empty his apartment so it can be sold.  We had not planned on filming the episode that day but everyone in the scene happened to be at Larry’s store so with some coaching from Larry we improvised this.  I hope you like it.
