Our store moved last year to a space around the corner from the old space. I still have dreams about working in the old space and being able to go to my studio on my lunch break. This was twelve years ago believe it or not. Now I am creating in clay instead of cloth. Marching to my own hero's journey. Fortunately the ideas are still swimming around in my head. I am going to attempt to scribble them down before they evaporate. Oh, one of the exercises in my class is one of using favorite foods to trigger creative energy. So, I made a batch of sweets I call cookie crack. It is a toffee like cookie bar made out of saltine crackers of all things. This stuff is so addictive I nick named it cookie crack.
Cody's Cookie Crack
2 sticks of butter
1and 1/2 cups brown sugar packed
1 and 1/2 sleeves of saltine crackers (enough to cover bottom of 9x13 inch pan
2 cups of chocolate morsels
1/2 cup chopped nuts of your choice. I use mixed
Preheat oven to 350 F
cover 9x13 baking sheet with parchment and then line with crackers.
In a saucepan melt butter and sugar together until bubbly and let it cook for three minutes stirring constantly. Spread mixture over crackers and bake in oven for ten minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate morsels over hot cracker mixture. Let chocolate melt and then spread with a spatula over the cracker mixture to coat. Sprinkle the chopped nuts over the chocolate layer and let cool completely. Now you can break into small cookie size pieces. Enjoy! Bwahahahaha....
Anyway, hope your Monday is a good one and the week flows like sweet honey for you. If I get any good scribbles I will try and share them with y'all. Cio!
