Cook My Way - Local (ish) site to share, compare and cook with


Saw this on Remo's newsletter this morning. Lovely idea - great food ideas and discussions.. and ... it's her birthday - HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEE.

Here's the site in their words:

Cook My Way was born out of a love for preparing food and eating it.

CookMyWay's philosophy is that you don't need to be a celebrity chef to make love in the kitchen, we believe that cooking, gardening and brewing should be celebrated and practiced in modern lives

Log on and apron up!
I'm off to try and cook Argentinean 'Alfajores'


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 tsp. lemon rind, grated
  • 1 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt

My Argentinian work exchange student brought these in and they are as delightful as she is


Cream butter; add sugar and beat until fluffy. Add egg
and egg yolks, one at a time, beating well. Beat in vanilla
and lemon rind. Sift together cornstarch, flour, baking powder
and salt. Add to mixture and mix well. Drop batter by small
spoonfuls onto well buttered baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove immediately. Sandwich the cookies together with (dulce de leche) sweet milk dessert. Makes 40 cookies.
For extra special fabulousness, roll themaround the outside in dessicated coconut
