Cookies and bad news

Like I mentioned in my last post, I went home last weekend so I could buy my new camera.
I did. (yay me)
So when I got back, I decided to make cookies, so I could share something with you guys...I know you've been feeling incredibly neglected, and I apologize XD
So I made the cookies, and I started to photograph them. I don't have a nice set up here like I do at my house, so I just decide to hold the plate of cookies up to the light and take the pictures like that.
Well, in my old age (lol), clumsiness has overcome me.
The plate slipped out of my hand, and crashed to the floor. It broke. Unfortunate, but just a plate.
The lens was fully extended, and that's exactly what it landed on.


Luckily, my dad shelled out the 80 bucks for the extended warranty.
Also luckily, my roommate's boyfriend was going back home that day, and so he's supposed to drop it off to my dad who can go get it fixed. (I got it at Penn Camera and there aren't any down here D:)


I can't believe I managed to do that!

Anyway, I made these GIANT (on accident) oreo-like cookies.

They're pretty awesome, but I'd suggest making them a lot smaller. XD


This is how huge they get. Ooh man


Step one!

Step two!


Sean and Moria sharing a cookie (after which, Moria looks at me and asks if she can eat it XD )

I have a history of taking pictures of Sean eating

The last picture I took before I broke this plate and my camera XD

Giant sandwich cookies:

1 1/4 cups of flour
1/2 cups of cocoa powder
10 tbsp of unsalted butter, a little soft, but not room temperature
1 cup of sugar
1 tsp of baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 egg
dash of salt

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit
Cream together the butter and sugar. Add the egg, and mix until fully incorporated
Add in all the dry stuff. Be careful, and go on a slow speed XD
Make balls of dough (smalllllllllll, unless you want my crazy monster cookies) and place them on a lined or greased tray. Flatten them slightly. Space them out 'cause they spread during baking.
Bake for about 9 minutes
While they're baking...make the cream!

Cream filling:
4 tbsp slightly softened unsalted butter
4 tbsp shortening
2 cups of powdered sugar
2 tsp of vanilla

Slowly beat everything. Once the sugar's all in, turn up the speed and beat until the filling's fluffed up a bit.
Put it in a piping bag or a sandwich bag with a corner cut off.

Once the cookies are cooled, assemble the sandwiches.

And if they're huge...share it with someone. XD
