Horses, Cookies and a Shot of Sherry before 10 AM

Posted in Pippa's Diary, Recipe | Posted on by lianna | COMMENT

This weekend I’m staying at my friend’s Ben and Pensiri’s country home in Millbrook which is about a two-hour drive from Manhattan.  In between watching episodes of  ‘My Fair Wedding’ and eating loads of everything (no seriously – everything) we managed to sneak a few cranberry butter cookies and a shot of sherry at the local hunt.  Here are a few pics and our favorite cookie recipe from Epicurious which is kinda the perfect treat for Fall!

Anyway, that’s it for now. Let me know what’s cooking in your world.
