First, Happy Birthday Little Mommies! You be old :).
Alright kids, it’s story time. One cold, rainy, ice stormy, day in February, seemingly like all the others in 2011, a young Twofacedchef set out to make a Cap’n Crunch-laden cookies at the request of her compatriots for a Super Bowl party. She measured, she poured, and mixed to her heart’s content. She found herself tasting the wonderful peanuttery batter and oohing and aahing over the flavor and texture. She put the cookies in the oven and they baked and browned and were removed and then something terrible happened…they tasted awful! This young broad was overcome with sorrow, knowing that many were waiting for said cookie and that they would be sorely disappointed. She let the cookies cool and wrapped them up to bring anyways to share as a flop or maybe become cat food. The next morning said “chef” was woken by a squeal of delight! Her roommate thought the cookies were delicious and did not understand the Twofacedchef’s dismay. The cautious chef reached out and tasted a cookie and cried in success! The cookies were eaten and quickly became a favorite at the Super Bowl party.
The moral of this story? Do not judge a cookie before it cools. And like world peace or something.
Due to my upset nature over the cookie, I violently deleted the photos. Here is the recipe and some wonderful pictures if you would like to try the recipe. http://picky-palate.com/2010/06/10/capn-crunch-peanut-butter-cookie-stackers/
Oh, and I doubled the amount of Cap’n Crunch because I’m a lush. So sue me.
