I went back to school to get a degree in baking and pastry for one reason and one reason only: to develop a deep-rooted hatred for chocolate chip cookie dough. Let me be clear, I wanted this hatred to be akin to my hatred of the corporate phrase "share out" or olives. If, however, I were to base my success in school on the aforementioned "goal", I failed...miserably.
Thankfully, other people enjoy sweets as much as I do. This means that I can bake and then force simply place a [insert sugar/butter concoction here] in front of my husband and co-workers and, presto, the [sugar/butter concoction] is gone.
This realization has led me to create some delicious treats, my favorite being the cookie sandwich:
Chewy molasses with buttercream filling
Chewy sugar with lime and coconut filling
Peanut butter with marshmallow buttercream filling
The Blue Ribbon
Dark chocolate cookie with pistachio filling
