    I've got the Amish Friendship Bread starter going. Anyone who would like to receive a starter can PM me. Should have at least 5 starters to send out. I'm going to let it go until I do the first bake which will be next weekend so I would be able to mail them out on the 23rd.

    These are the chocolate wafers I made for the chocolate cheesecake going to whip up today. I've never made a cheesecake before, wish me luck!

    CHOCOLATE COOKIE WAFERS
    1 C sugar
    1/2 C unsalted butter, softened
    3/4 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp baking powder
    1 egg
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    1 1/2 C all-purpose flour
    1/2 C cocoa powder

    Line baking sheets with parchment.
    Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
    Beat together sugar, butter, salt & baking powder.
    Beat in egg & vanilla.
    Beat in flour and cocoa.
    Roll dough into a log, wrap in plastic wrap and chill 1 hour or longer.
    Cut into 1/8" slices.
    Bake 10 minutes...watch carefully, these will burn quickly.

    This dough can be rolled out and cut with cutters instead of rolling into a log and cutting slices. If you want to roll it out, dust your surface with additional cocoa powder (in place of flour).

    I used dark chocolate cocoa powder and these are wonderful just as they are. Hoping to get a multi-chocolatey taste when used for a crust with the cheesecake.

    I used a filet knife to get the cookies sliced extra thin so they'll crumble better.

    The dough for this cookie is really dense, looked sort of like a big mud ball when it was all mixed up. Sure made me thankful I have a KA mixer and didn't have to do the mixing by hand!

    I bake cakes and decorate them, scratch recipes are hard to decorate, but fun to make
