I go a little refresh/reload crazy when Steepster gives me the “someone forgot to turn off the kettle” message. “Click …damn…click…damn…click…argh!” whoa…easy there drama queen :P
In my recent trip to David’s Tea I bought a little sample of each of the winter collection teas that were in stock. Sadly some of the collection was not there – sold out I suppose? (When I saw some were missing, I let out a mental “Boooo!” but I filtered that out before it escaped my lips ~ lol). Luckily they had cookie dough. I’ve been so excited to try this one ever since I first heard about it. I’m happy to say that it lives up to the hype that I created in my head…mmm…Delicious! The walnut is an interesting ingredient. If I think “walnut” while I drink it, I can taste it plainly, but if I think cookie dough, the walnut magically melds with the rest of the ingredients and gives that end taste of a cookie.
This tea makes me think of when I baked my first cookie as a child. Yep, I said cookie, as in the singular. I think there was supposed to be enough dough to make a couple dozen cookies, but I was really little so my lack of stirring skills ensured that a good portion was wasted on the floor and the surrounding mixing area. I also sneaked some tastes of the dough before I was caught and told not to eat it, for fear it might make me sick. Finally, I crammed the dough balls so close together that it fused together to form “The Uber-Cookie”. My parents tried to warn me, but eventually gave up. As my friend says, “life lessons- you can’t teach that stuff”. I’m happy to report that my current cookie baking adventures go a lot better. I dump less of the dough on the floor, and I now get actual separate cookies. I must admit, I still occasionally sneak a taste of the dough…mmmm….yummeh!
