__________________________
The usual stuff from TheBloodyPulpit:
1. LesJustices: In its youth, this was a profoundly unthrilling example of Sauternes. But I bought a bunch at a retailers closeout, because of the price. I stumbled across this last half btl in an overlooked box in my garage. It was stored the last 20 yrs in an uncontrolled temperature environment, pretty hot in the Summer, standing upright. The wine should have been totally dead & gone. It was not. It was a very nice example of a fully-mature old Sauternes, starting to dry out a bit, but still delivering lots of pleasure. Went well w/ the whiskey/mascarpone Oreos.

Is whiskey/mascarpone Oreos one item or three? If one we'll need the recipe!

What be this thing you call a recipe, Tom???

The previous week I'd made a whiskey/eggnog pound cake w/ a whiskey/mascarpone frosting. Had a bunch of the
frosting leftover. So bought some freezer-sugar cookies tubes, baked up the cookies, and used the leftover
frosting between 2 cookies to make me some Oreos.
The frosting was a basic cream cheese frosting but using mascarpone instead of cream cheese (I hate the flavor/texture
of the carageenan in the Kraft stuff). Powdered sugar as usual, as much needed to get the texture right. And a bit of whiskey
for flavor. A bit of Crema instead of butter. Recipe?? Don't got one. I'm a LosAlamos guy...just make stuff up.
