A Very Blustery Day

Hey interwebs! It’s been a while. My apologies. I’ve been busy, or uh, something.

Anyhoo, it’s a crappy day out, and as it often happens the weather proved itself to be a bit of a prophetic fallacy. So to counter the malaise I decided to bake a ridiculous batch of cookies (heffalump and woozle free)!

DISCOUNT EASTER CHOCOLATE BONANZA COOKIES!

The goods:

The selection above comprises of a giant Hello Kitty chocolate given to me by my generous roomie, shredded coconut, caramel Hershey’s Kisses, and Easter theme M&Ms.

Hello Kitty needed some alterations before being added to the cookie dough, which luckily coincided with my need to smash something. Look at that shit disturber winking at me. I WILL SMASH YOUR FACE.

Before:

SMASHY SMASHY.

After:

Then voila! Happiest cookie dough EVAR:

Here’s the recipe for my world famous (Canada and England, that’s worldly famously enough, right?) and aptly named “Fuck You Cookies”:

In one bowl combine:

1/2 cup melted unsalted butter

1 lightly beaten egg

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1tsp vanilla extract

In a larger bowl combine:

1 1/4 cups flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

Pour wet ingredients into dry, and combine. Add in whatever the hell you want and combine! Then refrigerate for at least an hour. You can also freeze this mofo for days/weeks/months and it’s still good. ALSO the dough, holy wow, just eat it.

Then after an hour (I wrote this while waiting, and made dinner like a bowss), preheat oven to 325. On a greased baking sheet, roll out cookies into whatever size you want. I believe the original recipe (from a book called “Kids Can Cook”) stated “walnut size balls” (tee-hee). But whatever floats your boat, these babies are versatile!

Bake for 7mins! Or rather, check in at 7mins… Take out, well, whenever you think they are done! I usually wait until just seconds before the edges go golden brown, cos I like my cookies gooey! These babies took close to 20min, cos well, they’re biggies.

COOL (totally optional), EAT (mandatory), ENJOY (unavoidable)!

MOAR PHOTOS BELOW:

My balls. Slightly larger than what I normally go with, which is usually the size of a very large red grape. But today: PLUM SIZED. Awwwyeah.

So the caramel Kisses exploded a bit, but guess who cares?
