Black bottom white-chocolate bars

Light, chewy, dark and sweet, these bar cookies are nigh unto brownies if not outright cake, and they are delicious and almost the most satisfying route to chocolate satiation I have made from The Joy of Cookies yet. Awesomesauce! One cup and two tablespoons of butter. Six eggs. Seven ounces of semi-sweet chocolate plus half a cup of chocolate chips and a bit of ground coffee, and six ounces of white chocolate. And toasted sliced almonds atop a creamy bittersweet chocolate glaze. If this is coma-inducing stuff, bring it on!

I am done with school and have gone through the ceremony to receive my certificate. Now what? Who knows! There are hoops to jump through ahead but for now I am resting. Working still and reinserting myself into the art gallery docent world by cautious degrees, but resting. There will no doubt be more cookie-baking in my immediate future. After that? We will just have to wait and see.


About pattiblaine

Raised under the name of Snyder in the upstate NY town of Vestal, I've worked as a typesetter, a fast food salad bar tender, an art reviewer, a waitress, a part-time nanny, and a very-bad-with-phones temp. Once upon a time I was all-but-thesis toward a Masters in Art History. Now I'm just a mom with a lot of fiber squirreled away throughout the house. We call it insulation. In 2013 I completed a life-long learning program at Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School, and am a postulant toward the diaconate in the Episcopal Diocese of Rochester, NY. In addition to coordinating volunteers for the soup kitchen, I volunteer as a tutor at a deeply impoverished city elementary school, and am a docent at the Memorial Art Gallery.
