Maude, Olive, and Betty loved making this episode–and the whole crew loved eating the cookies when the filming was done. These cookies are a favorite treat during cold weather–though they are yummy all year round. It always feels like a fun way to celebrate “bad” weather. The recipe we use (and have used for decades) includes the spelling you see. We didn’t want to jinx the tradition, so we’ve kept the spelling. Watch it now!
And we loved the ingredients introduction that Tiger in a Jar came up with. So fun!
Olive snapped this behind the scenes picture–you can see the high-tech mark-ups (i.e. bar code tags) video team used to frame the shot. This was the first inkling any of the crew (outside of Tiger in a Jar) had of the ingredients introduction.
