I assume everyone has already consumed their yearly allotment of butter, but in case you need something to push you into the 99th percentile, here's a good way to pop open your fat pants. My mom typed up some of my favorite recipes and mailed them to me when I became a grownup, in those crazy years before computers, global warming, and teeth bleach. It was a time of nutritional wonderment, when mothers fed their babies jars of Gerber egg yolks GAH.
Seriously, though, these are really good, and they freeze pretty well, too.
Happy new year!
