My friend Jordan was in town so obviously we had to get together and make cooks. This day has a simple theme: love.
Mexican Wedding Cakes! How Romantic!
What’s with the love theme? I’ll explain.
Love Item 1: Christmas is over and the Valentine’s Day stuff is coming out in stores.
Let’s get baking.
I normally avoid pecans at all costs, but this one wouldn’t work without them. I struggled with this.
My KitchenAid mixer wasn’t feeling the love. I apologized.
Love Item 2: Anyone who knows us is aware that we’re
mildly obsessed with Britney Spears. Jordan and I are going to her Vegas show in February. It opened on December 27 and our hearts ached that we couldn’t be there that day. Moral of this story: don’t question or challenge our love for Britney. We’ll defend her to the end.
Don’t eat? Okay.
While we waited, we cheated and watched a short video of Britney performing. We don’t want to spoil any surprises, so we’re not going to watch any more.
I asked Jordan to line the baking sheet with parchment and she had some trouble.
Step 5: Pinch off into level tablespoons and roll into balls.
Wait. Are you serious, Martha? PINCH OFF? I love you, girl.
Is this right?
Love Item 3: While I wait, I put on my perfume. I mean, we played the game Love Letter.
Can you feel the love tonight?
Done! Now for the sad picture of one cookie.
You thought that I would be lonely…
Not as powdery as Martha’s, but I played it safe. I definitely choked on powdered sugar last time I ate these.
I got: 24
Start time: 9:20
End time: 11:00 (1 hour, 40 mins)
Martha’s estimated time: 1 hour, 30 mins
What did I learn?
- I’m going to go crazy waiting until February to see Britney
- Pinching makes no sense
- If I wanna live fancy, I betta work bitch.
What do I need to learn?
- How hard do I have to work, bitch?
I don’t see Jordan very often, so I had to take this opportunity to show the love.
I’ll never tell, tell on myself, but I hope she smells my cookies.
