Today's joy is the Oatmeal Raisin cookie baked by the good people of The Food Mill.
They are chewy, hand crafted, and simple. Completely satisfying and delicious.
They've filled the gap in my culinary world where once stood the baked goods of the venerable, idiosyncratic and much talked-about Your Black Muslim Bakery. Mrguy especially misses their prune cups. I used to enjoy eating their fish sandwich at the Coliseum (although I once had the misfortune of having my fish leap off my lap and plop onto the ball field when I rose for the national anthem). EmBARASSING!
I wish they'd stuck to baking. I wonder what happened to their recipes.
Long live the Food Mill.
