Relationship update! Jimmy and I have determined what kind of snacks best match our personalities. I’m a fire-blasted cheeto and he’s a ritz-bitz. We decided that last weekend when we were in Washington DC – where he ran the Marine Corps Marathon!
I’m just real real proud of this guy. He was all smiles every time I saw him on the race course – and you should’ve seen some of the young beefcakes that finished after him! I was all “wowee wow wow wow! You sure smoked some beefcakes, homie!” (Direct quote)
Anyway – none of that has anything to do with these yayas I just made. I have to bring cookies into work tomorrow as part of a team meeting something and it’s supposed to be a family fall recipe. I’ve never made these deals before but it’s an “Aunt Martha” recipe, so I think I’m good. Her recipe makes like 4 cookies so I doubled it. Here y’all go:
1.5 sticka room temp butter
2/3 cuppa powdered sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla
1-1/3 cuppa flour
Two pinches of salt
2 tbsp ground espresso beans
Mix this shit and chill for 30 min. Make circle balls and smash your balls onto a cookie sheet. Bake flattened balls for 9 min at 350.
Check it – I made my first ganache tonight for the filling. It was a real game-changer, y’all!
2/3 cuppa heavy cream
2 handfuls of choco chips
Simmer your cream and then stir in choco bits. Chill this junk for like 2 hours and then squirt ganache blobs onto your cooled cookies. Dust your shits with cocoa powder and powdered sugar (listen – do this bit when the cookies are warm so the cocoa powder like melts into the cookie a bit….. I forgot to mention that earlier….)
These were such fun and easy shits to make and they look real sophisticated, like you can take them to polo match or a yacht christening ceremony. If you do, send me a photo of that! Thanks Bye!
(Ending these blogs is always so dumb. I have no idea what to say….)
