Oh yeah, punk?! Well, my recipe’s better than your recipe!
I’m sure at this point in your life pancakes are not anything special, and I understand that. But everyone’s got a different recipe for them and each one has different measurements and wait times and fancy ingredients like whole wheat organic vanilla beet sugar blessed by a lamb with vegan wool.
And you know that at Mamaland Island ain’t nobody got time for dat.
Do you like cookies? Do you like using common household ingredients? Do you like minimal work for maximum desserts? Well, listen up.
Everything you need to make these cookies (yes, all of the 4 ingredients) is probably in your house right at this very moment. “Please, make these cookies,” the ingredients scream, “they’re so delicious. I want to be useful!”
These cookies take all of 20 minutes start-to-mouth to make, and they’re crumbly (like sand, get it?) and perfectly nutty. And anyway, I think it’s safe to say that the less work involved, the better, no?
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, you read that right. 4 ingredients. Skeptical? I was. I don’t blame you…it sounds too good to be true. But this recipe always turns out for me, and I’ve been using it for years.
I love making cakes and pastries that require more work. It’s fun and therapeutic. I bake when I’m mad, sad, happy, bored, anything. But sometimes I don’t feel like doing much work and still want something chocolaty and cake-like. This inevitably leads me to brownies.
I have to say, I wouldn’t have expected it from myself, either. Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are my favorite? What has this world come to?
I know, I know. But rest assured, I don’t like healthy-tasting things, so these aren’t some sort of sugar-free, flax-raisin, whole wheat concoction. No way. We treat our desserts with respect around here.
..so I’ve been favoring savory pastries lately. Sue me.
I keep seeing these really pretty “crossover pastries” everywhere, and they just seem so darn beautiful. I’d been thinking about trying it for a while, but didn’t get around to it. Today, however, I made my own dough and got to work.
Now, from what I’ve seen, crossovers are usually made with puff pastry dough. I found another one of my grandma’s recipes, this time for the dough. It is so easy to make it’s almost criminal, and you don’t even need a mixer. You just stir with your fingers and bam! dough. Also, there’s no egg in this recipe, except for the egg wash on top.
