assembly line

Conor asks me to make his great aunt's cookie recipe. But he fails to mention she had a family of twelve. I have several pounds of cookie dough in the freezer. I should have known better than to make mormon cookies.

Eek. Does not bode well for Conor's exercise routine, eh?

thats what i said when i measured out the 2 cups of shortening. it just sat there in a gelatinous trans-fatty pile. great aunt doris must have been a formidable woman.

That is a LOT of cookies...and a disgustingly huge amount of shortening (but at least it wasn't lard...).

sweetviolet said...

nothin' like cookies with pork fat. mmmm....baconcookies.

fat little pug said...

what kind of cookies?

sweetviolet said...

they're kind of a catch all cookie. they have chocolate chips, walnuts, oatmeal and coconut. they're actually quite good. i'm baking some from frozen dough as we speak.

Mmmmm....bacon cookies.

Seriously, I grew up with these cookies around on occasion. Damn good cookies. But I must admit, probably not the best for you.

there's supposed to be a new crisco shortening that is free of those trans fats...hmmm...those cookies sound really good though.

Oh, the everything Mormon cookie...I've made those. The recipe called for an entire f'ing POUND of butter. That's a lot of damn butter.

sweetviolet said...

pants-yep. that's the equivalent amount of shortening. i'd rather use butter.

ayn- really? i'll bet their sales dropped, huh?

birdy- no bacon cookies. you're a begetaaaaarian.

Mmmmm...no trans fat bacon cookies.
