Authentic Suburban Gourmet: Salted Butterscotch Haystack Cookies

Happy New Year! I want to give a huge shout out to all of
you, my loyal readers.  I appreciate each
of you.  Each time I receive a comment on
my blog, a like on facebook, a tweet on twitter, a pin on Pinterest, a like on Instagram or a nice personal email, I am reminded that writing this blog is more
than posting recipes.  It is a platform
for building a community around something I have a passion for – Food, Wine and
Entertaining.  Thank you and look forward
to making 2014 a great year!!!
Back to work on Monday. 
After sixteen days away from the office, I must admit it rather shocked
my body to abound to a alarm
clock.  One can certainly get use to
sleeping in until each morning
then enjoying a piping hot cup of coffee while watching Good Morning America
with hubby.  Oh, hubby was on vacation
too – yeah!  We filled the time with
working out every other day, doing a ton of organizing, entertaining, drinking
wine, spending time with family and friends, eating in and dining out, baking, shopping,
watching movies, catching up on our favorite television shows and general
relaxation.  Overall, it was one great
vacation in my opinion – just wish it did not go so fast.

First day back to work was actually great. Wonderful to see
everyone, catch up and officially kick off a great 2014. In my Facebook feed on
Monday morning was this article and found it quite interesting that this Monday
was deemed the most depressing day of the year. 
The good news, they included 24 things to lift your spirits.  Made me chuckle.

Baking has to be one of the most relaxing and rewarding
things for me to do.  Each year during
the holidays and close to Christmas, I hang out in the kitchen for the majority
of the day and bake multiple batches of various cookies, so I can hand them out
to friends and neighbors.  It simply
brings me joy to share my baking prowess with others and see their smiles grow
and eyes light up. See photo below.  One of the most
simple yet incredibly addictive cookies to make is the classic haystack
cookie.  I made a simple version with a
tad of Fleur de Sel to adorn the top and the response was incredible. Not sure why I typically make these during the holiday season – note to self – make these year round.  What version do you make of these simple cookies?
