Get your aprons ready and mark your calendars for Weekend 1 in Hollywood on Oct 7, Weekend 2 in Pacific Palisades on Oct 14, and Weekend 3 in San Fernando Valley on Oct 22. Becky will be sharing her expertise in creating delectable Polish Cookies and Clothespin Cookies that are sure to transport you back to cherished moments of your past.
A Cookie Tradition: Polish and Clothespin Cookies
For many of us, cookies hold a special place in our hearts, connecting us to our fondest memories. Becky Duda's cookies, in particular, carry a unique significance. These Polish Cookies have been a cherished part of her life since childhood, made with love and tradition. They evoke memories of cozy Christmases and joyous Easters, bringing families together to celebrate with the sweetest treats.
"I loved watching her as a little girl and then helping make them," reminisces Becky. "Now, I make them at our annual Christmas cookie party with my lifelong girlfriends. We've been doing this for about 30 years."
It's clear that these cookies have a special place in her heart, and it's no wonder they're such a hit at every gathering.
Favorite Cookies: A Blend of Tradition and Creativity
While Becky holds her family's Polish Cookies close to her heart, she's also a cookie connoisseur who loves experimenting with different flavors. Her top picks include classic Chocolate Chip, comforting Peanut Butter Cookies, and the delightful Cookie Butter Cookies.
"I love to try all different types of cookies and put my own twist on them," says Becky. "But family recipes are just the best, and these Polish Cookies are always a big hit with everyone."
Indeed, there's something about the familiarity and nostalgia of family recipes that makes them truly exceptional.
Best Cookie Tip: Butter and Love, Lots of Love
When asked for her best cookie-making tip, Becky offers a simple yet profound piece of advice: "Butter and love, lots of love." It's a reminder that the secret ingredient in any great cookie is the love and care you put into making it.
Favorite Cookie Memory: Rolling, Filling, and Laughter
One of the most cherished memories in Becky's cookie-making journey involves her best friend and her late mother. As they rolled the cookie dough, added the filling, and dipped them into the nut mixture, her mother exclaimed, "Roll 'em like an I Love Lucy episode." The room filled with laughter, and the phrase became a tradition in itself.
"We started that like 25 years ago," Becky recalls, "and my Mom has been gone now for 14 years. But my Besty and I still say it every time we make those cookies at the cookie party with the girls. It's one of the best memories."
And that cookie that brings back those precious memories is none other than the beloved Polish Cookie.
