Mor Mor "Sleep Over" Biscuits, Cookies & Sock puppets

Mather Street, OAKLAND.

 From Head to Toe...   Foot to mouth:
Biscuits, 2 kinds of Cookies,
and Sock Puppets.
Nov. 10th 2011
So: not quite a SLEEP-OVER 
as Selim and Naveed are already sleeping over ad infinitum (part of the basic math training.)...   But we needed some Sleep-over energy, and thus the 4 tiered 
ASSIGNMENT:
Biscuits, Sugar Cookies, Chocolate Chip Cookies and Sock Puppets.


ASSEMBLED:
MorMor
Selim
Naveed
Sandriz
Rumeli

 

The Biscuits were made the usual way: with substitutions for all ingredients: flour, yogurt, sugar and butter. 



What's not to like?



 SUGAR COOKIES
 The sugar cookies (and the dough) were delicious
WE BORROWED THE RECIPE FROM HERE.

Ingredients for Sugar Cookies:
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) salted butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 large egg
2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour

Directions
In an electric mixer cream butter and add sugar and salt. Add vanilla and egg. Add flour and mix. Dough will be sticky-ish. Like a stiff, yet sticky play-dough. Gather dough and pat smooth. Cover and allow dough to chill for 1/2 hour in the freezer or 1 hour in the refrigerator.

But we chilled the dough for too long; (half an hour seemed to qualify as "too long,") so we couldn't rolling-pin them out to cut with cookie cutters, as planned. 


So Selim rolled his into balls.  Naveed cut his into blocks.


 
NOTE THE DIFFERENT AESTHETIC




SELIM's ROLLING TECHNIQUE


IN WHICH THE HAND IS QUICKER THAN THE EYE


Anyway, the whole idea was to ice them and add sprinkles.  
(Alas, Berkeley Bowl only had healthy sprinkles (i.e. white.)

AFTER THIS, NAVEED LICKED HIS HANDS
According to the Plan, they were to look like THIS :


But ours were better, of course









and then:
ENTER THE SURPRISE GUEST!








to be continued with..







MorMor made the chocolate chip cookie dough batter from a recipe called "World's Best", or something like that.  It called for browned butter and promised a nutty rich-ness.  If you find this recipe, avoid it.



AND FINALLY,  THE SOCK PUPPET EVENT
