“No one who cooks, cooks alone. Even at her most solitary, a cook in the kitchen is surrounded by generations of cooks past, the advice and menus of cooks present, the wisdom of cookbook writers.”
― Laurie Colwin
These little tea cookies are just the thing to have around in the summer. They turn a bowl of fruit into a dessert and are ideal next to a bowl of ice cream, sorbet, or mousse. They are a perfect companion to tea or coffee, either iced or hot, or even lemonade. Because they are not too sweet, they are eminently snackable, and most importantly, because they are oil-based instead of butter-based, you can make the batter in literally minutes. No mixer or hand mixer needed, just a bowl and a spoon or spatula (perfect for making at a vacation house where you're not sure what's in the cabinets).
