  1. What NICE COOKIES. I told the guys at work to try a couple cookies, they went through half of them wondering about the flavor,( curious ), when I told them it was KC Masterpiece BBQ sauce, they really were surprised, even though the taste of BBQ is there, Definately taste it. They eant more, so I guess it is back to the drawing board. YOU GOT A WINNER HERE.
  2. different but very good!
  3. These are fabulous. The guys like them with beer -- surprise! Before telling people these had BBQ sauce in them, the first guess from them was "molasses?" KC Masterpiece BBQ sauce is like a sweet and spicy molasses -- maybe it's the new molasses? Like 50 is the new 40? <i>Yes</>, I like to think so! Yeehaw! Thanks, Mary! Made for 123 Hit Wonders Tag.</i>
  4. OK - you know I had to try these! What are friends for, if not to experiment on?? I was surprised at how many wanted to try them - after I told them what they were. Such odd combination, who would have thought. But yet, it DOES go together! I think that overall, the guys liked them better than the girls. Thank you very much for sharing - the adventure is well worth the effort.
  5. "These are the best!" declared my 3yo son. I did think they smelled kind of weird when they were baking, but the taste is really good. I took them to a Boy Scout meeting, where they were neglected in favor of a table full of chocolaty goodies. I wasn't about to take home 2 dozen cookies however good they are (*especially* how good these are!), so I took them around saying, "Barbeque Sauce cookies?" One scout grabbed a handful saying, "these are awesome!" and the curiousity of many adults was piqued. Everyone thought they were very good. (And I only took home half a dozen!) Thanks! Reviewed for Newest Zaar Tag 08A. Oh! And I only made half a batch and baked them 10 minutes. Perfect!


I have two boys who will usually eat most things I put in front of them. As a single mom I use them as my guinea pigs....sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I have a huge garden, blueberry and blackberry bushes. I am always looking for a new recipe. I have three cats (Xiao Mao, which means little cat in Chinese, Pumpkin and Max) and two border collies, Lucy and Grace. All my animals come from Rescue Agencies. <a href="¤t=rsc002.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"><a href="¤t=006.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a><a href="¤t=hilfiger001.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
