You are most welcome and Happy Thanksgiving!

Well, I made some out of this world olive oil chocolate chip cookies last night. I found the recipe on a blog and if I find the link again I will post it. They don't taste like olive oil but have a unique wonderful richness.

More cookies today and butter tarts (I have 4 orders for 5 dozen each plus need them for something I am going to Saturday).

Pumpkin Custard update. I made two small ramekins for our breakfast along with the large custard pan. Okay, I swapped the evaporated milk, cup for cup, with sour cream. There is a very nice tart undertone and a creaminess I hadn't been able to achieve before. It does tend to take another 15-20 minute to bake, as there is more water content. But, it is superb and just right with lightly sweetened whipped cream. I also cut the pumpkin pie spice by about 1 teaspoon...fantastic, the spices are not overwhelming the taste of the pumpkin. I'll get a recipe written up, since I kinda just eye-balled the brown sugar.

Sounds great Princess F! I look forward to the recipe.

I made some a few days ago also - The flavor was great, but the texture was too cakey for me - I prefer chewy. Are these the ones you tried?

Yes, Merstar, they are. I knew someone posted the link before but I couldn't remember. And now I remember it was you. I found the first ones I took out of the oven were cakey, but I took the next ones out sooner and they were very chewy and good. I think I baked them for 7 minutes. Oh, and I used large milk chocolate chips (Hersheys "mini kisses") and they really blended nicely with the olive oil.

Thanks for the link, both times!
