Okay- Let's just be honest. I have been missing from the blog-esphere for a bit. And where have I been? I have been stuck down a rabbit hole called Downton Abbey. And I did not want to surface from this hole at all. It has been lovely. I have been walking around since then talking to people in a strange Asian version of a British accent. And I keep catching myself saying "Milady" and "My Lord". I have been getting a few weird looks. But- I don't care. The only thing I care about is Mary and Matthew. And what witty thing Maggie Smith is going to say next.
So, I have neglected this post for a long time. I have been meaning to tell you all about this amazing thing called BROWN BUTTER!! But, then Downton Abbey went and stole all the thunder. I think we all should write Laura Linney at once!!
I followed the recipe from Ambitious Kitchen. Check out her post here.
These cookies were deliciously amazing!! To be completely honest, I did not think Snickerdoodle when I ate one at first, but the flavors are so layered I guarantee even a non-snickerdoodle person (is there even such a thing??) will love them.
I followed the recipe closely until it came to the rolling the dough in the cinnamon sugar mix. I did not think that there was enough cinnamon in the mix- so I added some more. A lot more. And I am glad I did.
I also recommend you refrigerate the dough as called for in the recipe. I made a couple the night I made the dough because I could not resist and it did produce a flatter cookie. A tasty cookie. But a flatter one. I have no evidence of this experiment as I ate them. Very Quickly. And possibly burned my tongue some in the process. I soothed it with another cookie.
So the lesson of today's blog is- eat cookies and watch Downton Abbey. I have been saving my season 3 episodes for a friend. So, we will catch up together. Is anyone else as obsessed as I am with this show? Does anyone else feel an incredible urge to go out and buy a hat with bows, feathers and tulle? If not- just look the other way when I show up in mine.
