cookie calendar - day 4: lemon meringue pie cookies

The power of Twitter to connect like-minded people still amazes me sometimes. Here's a great example.

Sometime in mid-November, the lovely Yvonne (aka @th3hungrycat - who I had first met on Twitter, and then met in real life) suggested I contact @noshameshow to see if she would submit a recipe to my Cookie Advent Calendar since she had just competed in the Chef's Challenge Cookie Challenge.

I was a little nervous - I don't have a problem approaching people who I've already had some contact with, but to approach someone who I wasn't following on Twitter and then ask them for a recipe, especially one that they had just entered into a big competition? Yeah - nerves.

But @noshameshow (aka Lauren) was so nice that within minutes of me following her on Twitter and sending her a tweet she sent me a reply via Twitter and emailed me her amazing cookie recipe. I loved her format so much, I'm posting it as is instead of the normal recipe format. (If you want something to print out, I've typed it out as well). Plus, her cat wouldn't move, which makes me love it even more.

Lauren's Lemon Meringue Pie Cookies were a big hit at the Cookie Challenge (you can read a recap on Th3 Hungry Cat's blog - Lauren came in second!) so I'm very excited to be able to include them in my Cookie Advent Calendar.


You can connect with Lauren by visiting on Twitter via @noshameshow.
