I made cookies for a Salad Bar Potluck at work (I know), but I thought a cookie with fruit fit the theme.
Cherry is a fruit. Coconut is a fruit, right? And sugar is a fruit. Okay, I promise I’m not dumb.
With my trusty (again not photographed) photo assistant, we began.
But first, all our friends were in Vegas this weekend and we were sad, so we set up the Dollhouse Casino signs from my casino-themed birthday party. For those who don’t know, my house is called “The Dollhouse” so it was appropriately named “The Dollhouse Casino”
That “Toxic” sign you see is a Halloween decoration that never left.
How would you type out the sound of a mixer? eeehhhmmmmuuuuhhh? I wish it made the sound of a slot machine. ding-da-ding-ding-ding-cha-ching-da-da-ding
This is boringly easy so far.
Her eyes light up. Mesmerizing. Makes me want to gamble.
Here we have an artsy armpit angle. Usually there’s a cat hanging out on the carpet right there, but they were MIA.
I don’t ever eat dough. It’s bad for morale.
I used my scoop because it looked about the size of a tablespoon.
They came out looking a little small and round.
I pressed down on the next batch and they looked much better.

I got: 55 (my scoops weren’t “rounded” at first)
Start time: 11:30
End time: 12:25 (55 minutes)
Martha’s estimated time: 30 minutes
What did I learn?
- Coconut has a lot of fat.
- Stirring by hand is still difficult.
- I miss Vegas.
What do I need to learn?
- Is coconut fat the “good fat”?
- How do you play Pai Gow Poker?
- How do you play Craps?
- When’s my next Vegas vacation?
These were pretty popular at the potluck. I’m going to go buy some Scratch-Its now.
