This week's FFwD brought me face to face with my nemesis again. If I were a superhero (wearing my snazzy cape of course - and with my superpower ring, although I am not sure what power this ring would give me), the evil villain that we shall name "Rolled-out Dough" would be standing over me sporting an evil sneer and bellowing out his most EEEE-VIL laugh. "Mwah, ha, ha. Mwah, ha, ha" would roar from his lips....
But remember, in this scene, I am the superhero - sporting my ring, of course. And we all know that the superhero eventually prevails. No matter what challenges are faced along the way. Even when facing the most evil and feared Rolled-out Dough. (By the way, I started writing this after watching a Spongebob episode featuring Barnacle Boy and Mermaid Man - but I am sure they didn't influence my train of thoughts... Nope, not even possible. Although, if our hero had to choose, I am sure she would much rather be like a Power Puff Girl than something named after something stuck to the bottom of a ship - who wouldn't want to be a Blossom or a Buttercup?)
So when it was time to make these cookies, our brave hero (that would be me) formed the obligatory patty (or dough disk). Unseen by all but our hero, the disk was rolled out between sheets of wax paper before being placed into the refrigerator for "The Cool down". Of course, our villainous Rolled-out Dough does not know that the wax paper is part of our super-hero's plan to will him into submission.
Wham. Kerplunk. Pow. Kaboom.
(Insert Deep Voice of Narrator) "Yes, our mighty hero has conquered the dreadful Rolled-out Dough and turned into little piles of goodness. Children everywhere can sleep easy tonight and not fear being stuck with [insert dramatic pause] 'an Ugly Cookie'." [Fades out to theme music].
Disclaimer: the author of this post does not really think of her self in terms of being a superhero. All superhero inferences are purely for literary effect. But making a really good cookie does have the effect of making the author of this post feel like she has a super power. Which is kind of the same thing, right?
