I am torn.
These are some monster of a cookie. Made for cookie monsters, perhaps.
There really is no Marla involved. However, those who know me well, are all too familiar with my adoration of the alliteration.
Thus, mounds of deliciousness called for a mouthful of a masthead – a name, a title…
The story behind these cookies is not so much of monstrosity, but simple marketing.
A few months ago I acquired my real estate license. This is a wonderful business to be in these days – IF you’re already IN. Starting out, the competition is fierce and there really is no low-hanging fruit.
Over an evening of cocktails, a good friend suggested a magnificent marketing technique: combine the best of both worlds for Princess Ashley Sara – BAKING and BUYING.
I’m a buyer’s agent, AND I’m a master in the kitchen. Let’s get the word out that way!
So I rolled up my sleeves, baked three dozen cookies, packaged them up with BOTH business cards, tied a few bows, and delivered my baked goods.
Offices, businesses…anyone who might just enjoy Marla’s Monster Cookies –
– a mindful masterpiece.
Marla’s Monster Cookies
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. sea salt
Whisk together the dry ingredients and set aside.
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
2 large eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
Beat together the wet ingredients until creamy.
2 cups whole oats
1 cup raisins
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup walnuts
1 tsp. cinnamon
Fold in the additional ingredients until well combined.
Chill for several hours.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Using a melon baller or small scoop, plop down the cookie dough balls, about 2″ apart, on a parchment or Silpat lined baking sheet. Bake for about 15 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cook on the cookie sheet for 2 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
Once completely cool, package up with a card and a bow and deliver to any and every monster you know!
