Sugar. Sugar. Sugar. Sugar.
That is running through my head right now at full speed. Know why? …… I just ate six cookies.
One thing I knew when I started Pig Dog Farm & Bakery was that I’d have to try any new recipe – and old ones just to make sure the quality is still there. What I don’t think I fully realized is that because there are a variety of ways to make a cookie – that I’d have to eat each variation to find the perfect one.
Today, I wanted to try out a strawberry cookie idea and also a St. Patrick’s Day idea. I started with my base sugar cookie recipe and divided it. The first 12 were for a snickerdoodle order for today – but I had the other 12 to play with.
So, I took half (six cookies) and added strawberry puree. The other half (another six cookies) I added green food coloring.
I am very happy with the strawberry cookie – though I think it could have a stronger strawberry flavor. The green cookies – were great because they were the normal recipe, just green.
Then, came the frosting dilemma. Do I use buttercream? Nah, too sweet… Cream cheese? Maybe… Plain? People don’t want a plain cookie… Lemon glaze? Ohhh… are we on to something?
Either way though…in order to know which is best…you have to taste them. Hence me eating six cookies already today.
I still have not decided which cookie combination is the best – so I’m going to make my husband be the guinea pig when he gets home.
Have an idea for the frosting? Let me know! Comment below.
