Just me and the boys
So I sit for a second and look at him, careful not to squash his interpretation of his father's baking skills...which apparently is the likes of The Cake Boss. I simply say, "Yes. I might be able to figure out how he does it. If I get stuck on something, then maybe we can call him and he can walk us through how to do it." Without missing a beat, Matthew replies..."Okay, but I get to tell him it was my idea for you to try and see if you can make them."
I head to the kitchen to familiarize myself with the cabinets, cupboards, drawers, etc... I like to be comfortable in my surroundings before I tackle the unknown. With two sets of eager eyes on me, I set out to accomplish what only Rich has mastered. First, preheat the over to 350. Then, I walk over to the refrigerator, take out the package of Toll House Break and Bake Cookies and set them on the counter. I open the drawer, grab the scissors and prepare to remover the slab of pre-cut unbaked cookies from it's packaging. With the cookie sheet ready, I start to break the cookies apart and separate them out...careful not to get them too close together. Set the timer for 9 minutes and we...are...done.
