Flo and Wendell may be stars of a new children's book by William Wegman, but they're not letting the fame go to their heads. You may picture Wegman's iconic dogs as pampered pooches being fed beef bonbons all day long. No sir! They are salt (lick)-of-the-earth types who like to get their hands, er, paws dirty, preferably in sweet, sweet cookie dough.
As luck would have it, their friend Tracey Zabar is an authority on cookies and shared her recipe for perfect sugar cookies with them. Being altruistic to the bone, Flo and Wendell wanted to share Tracey's recipe with you. They have taste-tested it (many, many times to be honest) and give the recipe two paws up...way up.
If you would like to meet Wendell (his real name is Topper), he will be accompanying Mr. Wegman to a book signing this Saturday, December 7th at Anthropologie in New York City )1230 Third Ave at 71st St., 12:30 - 1:30).
