Bebahs is what my kids call my dad who happens to be famous in our family for hiscookies. Other people might know him as expert carpenter, vintage motorcycle restorer, craft beer brewer or winemaker, but around these parts hes thecookiecrafter.My parents have a big glasscookiejar in their kitchen that is always filled with hiscookiesand someone (bebah) is always cooking up a batch to ensure the jar is stocked. During our last visit my daughter, Sylvie, walked by the jar and stopped and in an almost panic tone announced that the jar was empty. A silence fell over the house.Sylvie and her brother Lincoln declared that we must make some ofbebahscookiesimmediately. The urgency was felt by all and everyone went running for ingredients. We came back from the pantry and loaded up the counter with ingredients. We came back from the pantry and loaded up the counter with ingredients. The pile was quite large and questions began flowing. Why do we need this and that and the other? The whole family told Sylvie and Lincoln how this recipe began many, many years ago, when the standard oatmealcookiejust wasnt cutting it anymore. My dad was bored.
