If one was having a party to watch the Oscars, or even if there wasn’t a party & you want a snack, what could be more appropriate than these cookies? The story, as I read it on epicurious.com, is that Nora Ephron (director & screenwriter) went to the Dahila Bakery in Seattle & bought some of these cookies. She emailed the owner saying that these were her all-time favourite and wanted the recipe. The bakery owner sent Nora Ephron the recipe with some cookies & asked if she could name the cookie after her in a cookbook. The answer was yes! I am going to a party to watch the Academy Awards Sunday night in Toronto so I baked these up & am taking them with me… hopefully they will not get broken in my suitcase! I have carefully packaged them up in tins. They are a bit time-consuming to make but very delicious.
