COOKIES, ICE CREAM AND DINING ETIQUETTE

Today I watched an interesting documentary (Gelato) on ice cream. With Independence Day coming up, how about Thomas Jefferson's recipe for vanilla ice cream? I think that a cookie goes well together with ice cream, so why not having a cookie jar peanut butter cookie? The recipe is from Sheila Lukins's U.S.A. Cookbook (pages 546-547, hardcover, Swedish edition, ISBN 3-8290-6078-5). [Editor's note: Please be aware that you could become a "cookie monster" if you start eating these cookies. Promise me that you will not contact a "public interest" lawyer...]

I recommend you to read Harry Roolaart's article, The Irrational Exhuberance of American Dining Etiquette, as a food for thought.
