I love to partake in a little retail therapy almost as much as I love to cook. Being a foodie, I often find myself browsing through new-fangled kitchen gadgetry in housewares when, truth be known, my kitchen is equipped just fine. I might not have the very latest, but I was raised to be resourceful. I can pretty much make anything with the tools I already have.
Case in point: This past weekend, I made the Eggstra Special Sugar Cookies from the March/April issue. (It’s on newsstands right now, and the recipe is on page 72.) I made them in simple circles with sugar sprinkles.
To cut them out, I used a piece of baking equipment my mother used — a glass jelly jar.
For smaller rounds, a stainless-steel jigger did the trick. I use both items to cut out biscuits and bread rounds for finger sandwiches, too.
I know some of you out there are just as resourceful. If you’ve got a tool or gadget that functions great in your kitchen but really wasn’t meant for cooking at all, I’d love to hear from you.
