Cookie Monster was on Top Chef this week. He, Telly and Elmo were judging the Quickfire which involved the chefs making, what else? Cookies! I can’t think of a better judge, unless it is one that can actually eat the cookies. Somehow these three Muppets ‘tasted’ the creations. If you can believe it, one of these talented chefs had never, EVER made a cookie before. Ever. Don’t most kids make cookies at home when they are still little, and even if they don’t ever make cookies at home, don’t they make them in Home Ec. when they are in Grade 7? Maybe it was just my school that got everyone to do Home Ec. and Mechanics and woodworking when we were in Junior High.
Anyway, I still had all that cream cheese icing left over from the heart cookies. You can’t just let that stuff sit in the fridge alone. It begs to be sandwiched between cookies of some sort. Plus, if I didn’t do that, I was going to slowly eat the whole thing by the finger-full. So, Oreos it was. Homemade Oreos are so much better than Oreos from a bag. They are soft and you can always add more filling. Yum.
