Jason & Emily and I are driving to Atlanta tomorrow to visit Clare. She’s been asking for Clare cookies for a few months. Like SHE WILL NOT LET UP! Because I wuv her, I made her some Clares.
1/2 cup room temp butter
1/2 cup sugar
Big ol splash of vanilla
1/4 tsp salt (HEAPING!)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1-1/2 cups AP flour
Mix this junk together and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill for 30 min. Set aside a bit of the dough for the black food coloring.
Listen. There’s no Clare cookie cutter. You gotta just free-form the Clares. Just a melon head with some hair….
Then make the face with the black dough. Clare’s face is like so gorgeous. Just make the most gorgeous faces you can. Then bake the faces on 350 for 10 minutes.
CLARE! I love you, babe! You’re such a stone cold weirdo and I just think you’re the cats pajamas. Can’t wait to see you!
