The set up:
Chocolate Chip Cookies
The Finished Product:
After finishing the cookies I tried out a little pinterest inspired baking idea: Ice Cream Cookie Cups
Theory: bake chocolate chip cookies on upside down muffin tin to make edible ice cream cups...
Reality: They don't slide off of the muffin tin, even with what seemed to be sufficient "greasing" of the pan. So instead of ice cream cups I got a plateful of chocolate chip cookie crumbs! Oh well... maybe I'll revisit this experiment another time. I didn't have time to play around with the idea any more after that because I had a special dinner experiment I wanted to try out!
Introducing the Pinterest inspired "":Broccoli Cheddar Chicken Braid
It turned out so much better than I thought it would! My fiance, who happens to be a very picky eater, even enjoyed it! [success!]
However this will have to wait for another day because Noah's 13 birthday is today, so we're spending the afternoon celebrating with him!
I'll be sure to post pictures of my pumpkin cake baking process when I do finish it!
Happy Fall Baking everyone!
