Jen in NH

I grew up in Central NY, where it is blasphemy to call these anything other than halfmoon cookies. And if you frost them on the rounded side of the cookie, it's just wrong. I've never seen any bakery, anywhere, do that! Harrison Bakery in Syracuse makes the best, IMHO. I live in NH now, and still make a point of getting a dozen halfmoons every time I'm home to visit. It's just me and my husband, so baking doesn't happen very often. It would be great if you could offer recipes specially sized to make very small batches. Well, I guess the upstate New Yorkers and the NYC folks will have to get together and duke this out. Frosted on the top, or bottom? Lemon, or not? Half Moon, or Black and White? Ground rules: there's no right or wrong here. We celebrate diversity! As to the small, couple-sized batches - if I had another 24 hours in every day, I'd love to be able to do recipes in two sizes; in fact, I'd love to be able to fulfill everyone's requests. Seeing as that's not going to happen, though... I suggest baking and freezing; or baking and sharing. :) PJH
