Part II of this week's "Treat of the Week" sees the return of a family favorite dessert, after a beautiful entree.
Lovely tender cheese tortellone were adorned with a thick, creamy sauce of tomatoes and pesto with pancetta and perfectly-seasoned mushrooms.
Beautiful little salads of fresh greens, cucumbers, tomatoes, olives and carrots were topped with more pancetta and imported provolone cheese.
It really was a delightful meal, and, I enjoyed a second helping. However, I made sure to save room for dessert which was the return of my favorite cookie!
Of all the many, many cookies which I adore, if I had to rescue just one kind from a burning building (just go with it), it would be these enormous ginger cookies. Soft and chewy with a delightful tang of ginger, these cookies sparkle with a dusting of demerara sugar. Chewy and thick, these sturdy (not crumbly or crumby like a lot of cookies) cookies both keep and travel well.
