If you have purchased Craving Cookies, thank you. It has recently come to my attention that two recipes have been found that need corrections. I find it interesting they both contain peppermint.
Peppermint Meringues, page 48, can fail if the peppermint extract has any oil in it. When I tested the recipe, the extract I used didn’t contain oil. However, now I find that every peppermint extract I look at has some peppermint oil in it. So add the peppermint extract or oil and coloring at the end of beating the meringue stiff. Also, use gel coloring if possible. It’s won’t dilute the meringue as can liquid coloring. My recommendation now is to add whatever flavoring is used at the end of the beating so there can be no problem.
Peppermint Ravioli, page 64 has an incorrect measurement. All of the butter measurements are correct except the last one. The stick butter should say “3 sticks” instead of 1 ½ sticks.
Please make these corrections in your books to avoid an unwanted outcome to otherwise wonderful cookies that are among the most popular in Craving Cookies.
