Remember Moda’s Country Fair theme from Spring 2011 Quilt Market which was carried through to a designer blog hop last September? At that Quilt Market, all Moda’s designers contributed a favorite recipe and a pattern for a quilt block. Shop owners could stop by each booth to collect the complete set.
Well, this week is your chance to stock up on holiday treat recipes and interesting quilt block patterns, because the Moda designers are sharing their creations with you on their blogs all week long. And today is my turn.
The recipe I contributed is one of my favorite cookie recipies. I found it in a Martha Stewart magazine years ago, and I’ve loved it ever since. Don’t let the title turn you off. The black pepper in these cookies actually helps to intensify the flavor of the chocolate. S will run screaming from any dish that contains a noticeable amount of pepper, but I can’t keep her away from these cookies.
Taking off from the country fair theme, I designed a block I called the Ferris Wheel.

Be sure to stop by the other designers’ blogs this week to see what’s going on in their kitchens and sewing rooms this season. Here’s the complete lineup.
