In one of humanity’s ironies, days meant to commemorate great sacrifice are often spent in great excess or merriment. Recall the Homeric feats of Classical Greece where the battles and bloodletting of the Achaeans, or their besieged Trojan counterparts, were passed with games, the reciting of poetry, and copious amounts of food.
To that point, I’ve been talking a lot recently about some of the ways I’ll be celebrating this summer, especially Memorial Day, and about some of my favorite grilling items, as well as ways to capture the flavors of the seasons indoors without the need for open flames. However, what about desserts? After all, nothing is ever enjoyed to its fullest without a dash of sweet…no matter how delicious the barbeque.
True, there are the perennial frozen treats that are often the first thing that spring to mind as the weather warms, or baked pies of varying fruit, or even a handful of seasonal cakes that everyone knows and loves. While each of those items will likely find a place in my dessert menu this season, for this Memorial Day, I wanted to do something a little unexpected, and decided on making M&M’s® Shortbreads.
我不得不包括M＆M'S®食谱中看到M＆M'S®红色，白色，蓝色和我的地方后，沃尔玛（Walmart），which are meant to commemorate the troops – and since for each bag of M&M’s® purchased MARS is donating a bag to the troops. I couldn’t help but consider this to be particularly apropos, since M&M’s® were originally made with soldiers in mind. During the Spanish Civil War, Forrest Mars, Sr. observed soldiers eating British made chocolate pellets encased in a sugar coating as part of their rations, and decided he could provide a better product. After receiving a patent in 1941, production of M&M’s® began in New Jersey, and after the United States entered World War II, the candies were sold exclusively to the military.
With that in mind, I picked up a bag of the M&M’s® Red, White, & Blue Peanut 42 OZ, Skittles® Red, White, & Blue, and M&M’s® Red, White, & Blue Milk Chocolate at my local沃尔玛（Walmart）。我决定用M＆M'S®红色，白色，蓝色和花生在我的食谱，因为这将给脆饼，伟大的M＆M'S®紧缩和风味，同时还增添了一丝节日色彩的甜点。亚博竞技二打一官网亚博体育我们用面粉，盐，红糖和黄油的基本脆饼的配方开始了，并且我们增加并亚博体育购M'S®花生。
