I am on vacation from work this week. My husband is out of town, I already did my workout, the sky is grey (again) and I am bored. I could do something constructive like laundry or cleaning, but where’s the fun in that? Do you eat out of boredom?
I bake out of boredom, which then, of course, leads to eating. So, to cure my boredom today, I baked. It took most of my afternoon. I planned out a recipe, shopped for ingredients, baked, took pictures and then promptly took my end result over to a friend so I wouldn’t eat them all. Boredom solved!
So what did I bake? Well, I intended to make scones. Here is a look at my scribbled ideas for how I would make them.
I envisioned a thick, chunky scone. That is not what I got. They spread a lot more than I anticipated and were moister than scones. I ended up with Monster Cookies. Some baking failures are not failures at all 🙂 I will tinker around with the recipe and see if I can come up with scones, but in the meantime, I have a yummy new cookie recipe. Monster cookies for the Cookie Monster in all of us.
I was sad when I didn’t end up with scones. I was happy again when I tasted them 🙂 I put a dollop of whipped coconut cream on top of my monster cookie and devoured it.
