#47: Minty Kalings

Hey team!

I have 4 months left before my 40th birthday, which means the likelihood of getting on a 40 Under 40 list is REAL low! I didn’t really know what I wanted to do life-wise until just recently – and even now it’s just a Polaroid picture that’s still developing. I really envy people who get their shit figured out early but I’ve always been a late bloomer. Anyway, things are starting to take shape. I’m happier now than I’ve ever been. I feel optimistic. And I saw this thing from Mindy Kaling.  

write your own part. It is the only way I’ve gotten anywhere. It is much harder work, but sometimes you have to take destiny into your own hands. It forces you to think about what your strengths really are, and once you find them, you can showcase them, and no one can stop you.

So. She gets a cookie.

1 sticka butter

1 cuppa sugar

1 egg

1/3 cuppa dark choco cocoa

1 hefty splasha vanilla

1/4 tsp kosher salt

1 cuppa flour

Quite a few dark choco chips

Mix this shit and bake small blobs for 11 min at 350. Once these are out of the oven, smash down with a spatula if they’re not super flat. Really flatten your shits out! Then chill your shits, babe! Right into the dang fridge! 

Ok now make some mint buttercream frosting. It’s 1/2 sticka butter, but melted. Mix this mess with a heap of powdered sugar. I’ve given up measuring this. You’ll know it when you see it. Add some peppermint extract and a splash or two of milk. Again – just give it a mixeroo until it’s buttercreamy. Divide your frosting – some gets black food coloring. Some gets green food coloring. Find some photos of Mindy Kaling and try your dang best. 


TASTE – 10!!
