So as I mentioned, today was the day to try the pokeball cookies nerdy nummies recipe!
the most awesome Ven came over to help out! which was AWESOME because it is extremely rare for me to take on a project in the kitchen, especially one that involves as much work as this one does! We were baking from noon to 4:30, and then sadly had to party ways since I had to go to work. BUT OBSERVE:
These are the cookies before baking! This pan only had 2 actual pokeballs—we had a lot of extra batter after cutting out the pokeballs, so we made x-mas trees with the excess, AND THEN with the last little bit of batter left, made dickerdoodles inspired by Penny Arcade. (I have mixed feelings about PA but I love dickerdoodles.)
Here they are after baking and decorating!
Should I tag this as nsfw cause of the dickerdoodles?
then we ate the dicks.
but oh my gosh I HAD SO MUCH FUN TODAY
we also took a break (the batter had to stay in the fridge for an hour to firm up before it could be rolled into logs and then cut to make the beautiful pokeballs you see) and while we waited, I fed Ven PORK BUNS, I love pork buns! god damn i love pork buns.
god damn. pork buns. <3
Anyway, the cookies turned out so beautifully! We decorated them and aaaah I am so proud of them, and so thankful I had a great baking buddy! AND THE POKEBALLS ARE SO TASTY OH MAN 8D
Happy holidays, everybody!
