C is for Cookie

November 13th, 2009

This week marked Sesame Street’s 40th Birthday (November 10th, to be precise). In order to celebrate this noteworthy achievement in children’s programming, and likely the fact that many of us did come to associate the letter “C” with “cookies” (thanks to one shaggy, blue muppet), I encourage you to bake a few for yourself this weekend (cookies not muppets!) from recipes gleaned from Steenbock’s cookbook collection.

Use the MadCat catalog or speak with your librarians for assistance locating titles. Should a title be checked-out to another library user, do consider a UW-System search or visit one of our area public libraries. Again, campus librarians are happy to help you find available copies.
