The Great Pumpkin Experiment

Thursday, August 30th, 2007

My dear readers, I’d like to introduce you to the Great Pumpkin Experiment of 2007. This all started a few weeks ago when Aaron found a cookbook at the store. Little did I know, Aaron is quite the fan of pumpkin confections, and this book was certainly full of recipes for them. With the help of Todd , we selected the appropriately named recipe for Great Pumpkin Cookies to launch the experiment. With our (mostly organic) ingredients purchased, and Aaron manning the camera, we set took the plunge.

Of course, a project of this magnitude can’t go anywhere without coffee. Or tea, if that’s your choice.


Way to look excited there, Todd. You’ll definitely want to read more

Galletas del diablo!

Tuesday, August 14th, 2007

Last week, I made my first-ever batch of what I nicknamed “devil cookies.” The name was originally inspired by the sheer number of processes involved: making the dough, making the filling, chilling each, then rolling out the dough, adding the filling, rolling all that up and freezing, then slicing and finally baking. Around six hours, start-to-finish.

Well, the first set came out of the oven, and each of the three cookies in the center row was in the shape of the number 6. Galletas del diablo!


And now that they’re almost all gone (just two left), I can at least say that they were totally worth the effort. Galletas del diablo will definitely be repeated.
