Yum…mmm…oh…delightful…interesting…another… bite so good…loving this…gone. Does that describe how I feel about this gorgeous cookie/ice cream sandwich? Not really. The dry smokey sugar and the whole pecans cajoled me into eating my way through this entire confection with unrelenting abandon. Ephemeral pleasure like this will make you promise just about anything. I couldn’t be spoken to or reasoned with for as long as I had one of these in my hands. This picture is the only record remaining.
Here’s my experience:
Conclusion: Next time I make these (there will be a next time) I’ll reduce the overall size of the sandwich as I found them a bit too tall my mouth. By contrast, they weren’t too tall for Captain Canada’s mouth. WHAT ARE THE ALPHA BAKERS? : Here’s how it works: once a week, for the next two years, 25 Alpha Bakers commit to baking their way through every recipe of Rose Levy Beranbaum’s newly published The Baking Bible. Each week we post our experiences on our blog sites: our successes, our failures, our like and dislikes. The recipes are scheduled in advance so that everyone is baking the same recipe at the same time. No recipes can be shared in my Alpha Bakers The Baking Bible posts due to publishing restrictions enforced by the publisher, but if you love to bake, this is a must-have book. You can see other tutorials for the same recipe at the following link The Baking Bible Alpha Bakers at http://rosesalphabakers.blogspot.ca/.
