A few of them (grudgingly) made it to the office with the ECBF this morning. I think he would have taken down the whole container if he’d thought he could get away with it. I’ve made an Imperial Cookie convert. I needed him to courier the cookies to me because I didn’t want to carry them in my backpack while I walked to work. By the time the container made it’s way to me at my office, it was a couple short. NBD (no big deal), I put them out, apologized for their icky appearance and waited for comments.
Guess what? Apparently they’re quite good! So now I know I’ve got the recipe just right. Yay!
I’ve had some (it really was unsolicited) advice on how to properly ice the cookies – and apparently I’ve been doing it all wrong. One suggested frosting the tops before filling the middles – but I don’t think that will work because I used a dip method of frosting, and I’d leave a finger print on each one (I suppose I could use my baker’s tweezers). I think I’m going back to the drawing board on the frosting only and I’m going to try instead to re-jig the recipe so that I can simply pipe the frosting on in my usual method. I may lose the adorable heart-shaped hole in the middle too. So now I solicit the advice: thoughts, comments, advice, any of those three are officially welcome – apparently I do need it… Particularly about the hole in the cookie – is that an essential Imperial-cookie-ism?
