Janet Gaynor's Ice Box Cookies

Love that Tam O'Shanter!

I made a big batch of Janet's cookies for my Cinema Museum lecture and they were wolfed down by the lovely folk who came along. The lecture was lots of fun but I had a few technical problems. When my Greta Garbo clip failed to play I had to do the quote myself, "Gif me whiskey, ginger ale on the side. And don't be stingy baby." Ha ha!

I met some lovely people and had a chat after the event with a potential publisher for the book over beer, fish and a "little bit of chip".

So sorry I couldn't get there: I had to WORK - have you ever heard anything so appalling?
I was even more jealous when I saw Angela's photos of the Cinema Museum.
Hope the publisher talks went well: good idea to have a few cookies there to grease the wheels, as they say.

WORK? Oh, poor you. Hope it was fun in some shape or form. The Cinema Museum is a glorious institution - long may it prosper. All good with the publisher, I may be picking your brains about that sometime soon...
