Well, Amy calls this recipe, “Chocolate Chip Cookies“. And they should have become that… if I hadn’t have skipped out on a very important step. See, I had all the ingredients.
We thought we followed all the instructions necessary to make some ‘killer’ cookies. We waited anxiously by the oven … eating leftover chocolate chips … and licking spoons (when the eggs come from my hens, we lick the batter with wild abandon – salmonella be damned).
… because this is what we were faced with …
I am thinking that if this ever happened to Amy – she would mold the moist cookie crumbles in to some fantastic sculpture — likely that of a squirrel or rabbit (read the book). But I felt so defeated by my lack of acing the most basic of baking recipes … that I could not conjure up any humor in it. Amy would have though. I know it.
I know now that I will need to return to this recipe again soon. I feel the need to master it before heading on to such lofty goals as Mr. Mace’s Mushroom Casserole.
So, if you are following this “Amy Sedaris: I Like You. Blog Series” in order to gain some serious Martha Stewart type cooking & entertaining tips … I have nothing for you. Apparently, at the age of 36, I can’t even get cookies right. But if you would like to follow me on this journey of self-discovery through baking/cooking/entertaining … then by all means come along for the ride. It seems as though it is going to be an interesting one.
