Five Things You Should Be Doing

by Bread and Putter on March 29, 2011

1. You should be following Ali over at Three Baking Sheets to the Wind. Add her blog to your feed, or your bookmarks or to that scrap of paper you keep in your top drawer with your hand written list of favorite Web Logs because you are old school like that. Because, seriously, where else can you find Angry Swans, Beer Candy, *AND* edible Alan Rickman?

2. You should be treating yourself to some fancy-pantsy European butter. It’s great on bread but a-freaking-mazing in cookie dough, particularly in this recipe that Ali posted recently. Ali used Plugra, and then I made them and used KerryGold. It was a struggle to stop myself from eating the raw dough and refrigerate it already.

3. You should be learning my new math. It’s like this – one giant cookie is good. But it is one cookie. You might feel guilty if you ate two giant cookies. But who can stop at just one cookie? But if you make your cookies medium or even medium large, you can surely eat more than one. Maybe even three. Surely three medium cookies are less than or equal to the calories and fat of one giant cookie. Or maybe not. But you can pretend.

4. You should be making these cookies already, like yesterday. I used pecan halves instead of walnuts, Ghiradelli bittersweet baking chunks, and made 20 or so medium-large cookies instead of 12 giant ones. And then I ate many of them.

5. You should be dancing, yeah! Burn off a few of those cookies.

Jennifer, have you been peeking in my desk drawers again? Ali is fantabulous and I can not wait to meet her in real life at Big Summer Potluck in July.

Yes, I saw your list in there along with your Prodigy password and your MS DOS cheat sheet.

Party in Wendi & Ali’s room, BSP2, Woot!

I hope you didn’t swipe my ATM PIN or my answering machine password when you were poking around in there.

I believe there will be an official meeting of the Alan Rickman Fan Club in our room…but non ARFC folks are welcome.

How deep is your love for these cookies?

Of course, it’s hard not to get hyped about sweets in general but I have been pushing these cookies onto people like a door-to-door salesman. I’m so happy these cookies found a home in your kitchen.

Huge thanks for the shout out, Jennifer! I can’t wait to finally meet you and Wendi. It’s going to rule.

I’m hearing the Bee Gees in my mind – guess that means I better get to making some cookies, huh?

Absolutely! It’s a sign. :-)

Cookie pusher!!! Stop it! First I have to make BlueBonnet’s movie theater cookies, then the effin’ good cookies, oh, and we can’t forget the homemade oreo cookies, now yet another cookies I have to make??? Yes, I blame you for all of these because I wouldn’t have known about any of the recipes without folks I picked up from your Twitter feed or your blog. ;-)
