Well, DB wanted all of us to make marshmallows.It would have been a truly exciting challenge if I could make my own marshmallows. Unfortunately, my other commitments took my time which was set aside for my baking sessions. But then, as always DB had given an option of making cookies with store bought marshmallows and I made the cookies in an hour with lot of help from my friends :-)
My friends joined for the cookie making session. So this time around,unlike others, I had company and let me tell you, it was much more fun. The cookie itself was so yummy to eat. So, of course once it came out of the oven, we gorged couple of hot ones. The rest went for marshmallow topping. Into the oven for 5 min and out came some gooey gooey marshmallows cookies..
It was really soft to touch(and my fingers burned.) In went couple of them into our mouths. We could not wait for the finishing stage - covering it with chocolate glaze.
And what beauties they turned out to be. It was my first time making cookies and I was so overwhelmed with emotions- was damn excited,maybe jumping with joy.
